Our stakeholders

Given TenneT’s vital role in society to keep electricity flowing in our markets, what we do matters to a wide range of stakeholders. These include our shareholder, the general public, NGOs, politicians, regulators, investors, the media, our customers, our suppliers, our employees and other European TSOs. We update different stakeholders on our activities, inform them of our plans, listen to them and address their concerns as best we can.

To create value for our stakeholders, we have to understand their expectations and needs. We do this by interacting with them regularly and transparently across various platforms.
