Our DNA

Mission

Effective communication and our engagement in the political decision-making processes enable GIE to strengthen the development of the European gas infrastructure operators. By doing so, we pave the pathway towards a cleaner and more sustainable future for all.

 

GIE’s mission comprise, but it is not limited to:

  • Promoting a safe, reliable and efficient European gas infrastructure system suitable for meeting present and future needs;
  • Promoting the completion of the internal market and the development of a well interconnected, integrated and flexible gas infrastructure system in Europe in order to enhance security of supply, integrate European wholesales markets and ensure the free flow of energy across the borders;
  • Promoting the important role of gas and gas infrastructure in achieving the EU energy policy objectives in a reliable, cost-effective and sustainable way;
  • Promoting innovation such as new uses of gas, new technologies, new services, etc.;
  • Contributing to the setting of a stable EU policy and regulatory framework in cooperation with EU institutions and European regulatory authorities;
  • Voicing the opinion of the TSOs, SSOs and LSOs in Europe with respect to the previous points thus representing the sole interest of infrastructure operators.

 

Vision

Our vision is that by 2050, the gas infrastructure (pipelines, storage assets and LNG terminals) will be the backbone of the new innovative energy system. We are here to deliver the cleanest, most secure, efficient and sustainable energy supply for the European citizens and industries.

 

Goal

Our goal is to be the voice in Europe of the gas infrastructure operators and to ensure GIE is the go-to destination for the EU and international stakeholders, as well as Brussels-based and international media.

 

To achieve this, GIE works to:

  • Provide the latest technological and innovative developments in the sector’s efforts to achieve climate neutrality by 2050;
  • Provide the most accurate, reliable and updated data from the industry;
  • Act as the central point on gas infrastructure issues and interact with wider national, EU and international stakeholders;

 

Values

The interests of the gas infrastructure business are our number one priority.

  • We work in strong partnership with our members and leverage their contributions;
  • We foster GIE’s messages and narratives proactively;
  • We nurture the relations with our stakeholders;

 

A healthy work environment is what makes us deliver top-class results.

  • Fairness, integrity, transparency and collaboration are at the core of our daily work;
  • We nurture a culture of feedback and trust;
  • We value diversity and inclusivity;
