Diversity and inclusion

(GRI 405-1, GRI 405-2)


Alpiq benefits from a wide range of perspectives and experiences by embracing diversity and equal opportunity and attracting candidates from different cultures, demographics and identities. Our colleagues come from different parts of the world, embodying a wealth of cultures, backgrounds, experiences, viewpoints, and skills. The varied composition of our teams is integral to our success. It can lead to greater innovation, creativity and better decision-making, give us an even better understanding of and connection with our diverse customer bases, and help us create a more equitable and inclusive society.




“Diversity and inclusion go to the very heart of ALP1Q. Our success is powered by our people and our international set-up, and our employees come from all walks of life, which makes D&I even more important.”
