Why choose for Eneco?

As a frontrunner in the energy transition, Eneco has formulated an ambitious target in 2035 - 15 years earlier than the global climate agreement: to be climate neutral as a company and with all customers! Growing as a company itself to a climate neutral organization is already a big job, but also actively leading and guiding all customers through the energy transition is an even greater challenge! Meanwhile, these customers are changing rapidly. The climate issue is increasingly high on the agenda, mainly due to the increasing visibility of the consequences in nature, and even more recently the high gas price. And in addition, every customer has a different issue, a different situation and therefore often a different route in mind. The modern digital consumer wants fast, seamless and relevant contact with every supplier and therefore also with Eneco. In order to excel in this dynamic environment, we also regularly change ourselves. The IT functions are delivered from a central unit: Business Technology Organization (BTO). Together with the various business departments of Eneco Group, we are working hard on the right solutions and offerings to support the energy transition as best as possible and thus achieve our goals.
