ENERCON and Lagerwey's response

...the information in this statement applies to the entire ENERCON group, including one of our innovative development units Lagerwey, since it was completely integrated into ENERCON by the end of 2019.

ENERCON is not sustainability report obligated, which is why reports are not publicly available. ENERCON has a policy in place, which refers to our company's vision "ENERGY FOR THE WORLD"...

Our understanding of sustainability is also reflected in our Supplier Code of Conduct, which addresses legal and ethical principles such as: Compliance with applicable laws in general and more specifically with regards to gifts and benefits, fair competition, conflicts of interest, money laundering, embargo and trade control regulations, ENERCON property and confidentiality, occupational health and safety and environmental protection, tolerance and equal opportunities (including gender equality), forced labor, child labor...It is mandatory to our entire onboarding suppliers to contractually commit to respecting the Supplier Code of Conduct...

Currently we do not specifically refer to concrete minerals sourcing in our risk identification. Nevertheless, we have implemented a more detailed risk assessment and supplier audits for special minerals and products...The results of the "Human Rights in Wind Turbine Supply Chains Update 2019"report do not reflect the actual circumstances regarding the due diligence process at ENERCON correctly...At European level, ENERCON actively engages in the drafting of principles for supply chain sustainability in the context of an industry-wide initiative. Moreover, ENERCON is also involved in advancing the RBC Agreement for the Wind Energy Sector (facilitated by the Dutch Social and Economic Council (SER)) to improve the due diligence in the company and sector further.
