Wat doe je als Internship Power to the Planet bij TenneT?

It is TenneT's mission to provide security of electricity supply in the markets we serve and to pursue development of an integrated and sustainable North West European electricity market. We take the responsibility to maintain grid stability and enhance the high-voltage infrastructure, enabling the large-scale use of renewables.
We strive to enhance the energy transition in a sustainable manner, leading the way in maximising our contribution and minimizing our impact as a TSO. We do this by creating positive impact for people working for us and impacted by us and by showing commitment to environment through avoiding, minimizing and compensating our impact on the planet.

Our Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) ambition 2025 focusses on the following areas;

  • People; society, diversity and safety
  • Planet; circularity, climate and nature
  • Profit; regulatory return (our earnings consist mainly of revenues from regulated activities).

We need to progress our performance in each of these areas the coming years to realize our ambitions.

Sustainable use of materials is becoming more and more a subject of discussion; the concepts of the cradle-to-cradle, circularity, zero waste are becoming increasingly important. Since TenneT is using a lot of materials and will expand their assets base in high speed, we need to build up internal awareness and knowledge and need to start projects to make circularity work within our company. At the same time, we have to be an innovative company, creativity and thinking out of the box are crucial to deal with the challenges we are facing.
For that reason an internal engagement program 'Power to the Planet' is rolled out in 2019, both in the Netherlands and Germany, which combines the objectives of CSR and innovation. This assignment is an essential part of this program and will contribute to the success of it.

The assignment "power to the planet" consists of two parts:
1. Our supply chain
Where do our materials come from? How many steps are there going back from our cable to the mine?
To create awareness and understanding of our impact we need to take steps into our supply chain. It will be your task to take these steps, analyse what is happening and translate this into a story for internal communication purposes.
2. Innovative thinking
How do we help our employees in being more innovative? How do we unlock the potential?
Several steps have been defined to unlock creative and innovative thinking. The execution of these steps and thinking about the next steps are requirements to make this program a success. It will be your task to run this and to support CSR and innovation.

You will work together with the Innovator and CSR Manager and you will be part of the Corporate Asset Owner Team.
