Worth a watch: Customers and business partners discuss energy-related topics on video.

We want to give a face to our customers and partners from the energy and gas industry. We want to pay tribute to them and allow them to speak for themselves. In the campaign ‘together4gas’, our customers and business partners introduce themselves in video clips, telling us where they stand and offering their thoughts and opinions on the subject of natural gas.

With ‘together4gas’, we make the concerns of our customers and business partners visible, so together we take a clear stance on the important issues in the energy industry. The videos also show that gas and gas infrastructure are a good thing for the energy world of tomorrow. We hope you enjoy watching them!
