Accessibility statement

Vattenfall is committed to providing services to people with special requirements, and this web site has been built with accessibility in mind.

We have taken all steps possible to ensure a high level of accessibility and compliance with the guidelines provided by the World Wide Web Consortium (W3C) and the Web Accessibility Initiative (WAI).

Meeting EU guidelines

Our websites, like the internet itself, are continuously developing. This is also true for our work with accessibility. As we continue to publish material and develop services online, we always strive to make them compliant with the Web Content Accessibility Guidelines issued by WAI. These are divided into three priority levels, and we currently aim to meet the priority 2 standard, which is the level of accessibility recommended by the EU.
Accessible PDF files
A worldwide popular format for publishing documents is Adobe’s Portable Documents Format (PDF). Our sites are no exceptions and contain many PDF files. Although technically possible it is not realistic to convert all of these files into an accessible format at once. If you come across a file on the site that you find inaccessible, we therefore kindly ask you to request this in the following form.

We will then convert this file into an accessible format as fast as possible and contact you as soon as this has been done. We apologize for any inconveniences and ask for patience in this matter.
Our efforts include:
Use of style sheets and XHTML in accordance with W3C guidelines
Link phrases make sense when read out of context
Tabular data is marked up correctly
Headings and subheadings are marked up correctly
Form controls are explicitly associated with their prompts
Font-sizes are specified using relative units of measurement (this makes them resizable in all browsers)
When offering scripts, Flash movies and images, we offer alternative content where this is relevant
