CNR model

CNR at the heart of territories

The organisation of CNR is decentralised with four regional divisions. Each is responsible for carrying out CNR’s missions with concern given to close relations with local actors regarding electricity production, navigation management and territorial development.

CNR’s deliberately decentralised organisation has two goals: that of ensuring a strong, responsible and reactive presence, sensitive to local expectations, and that of deploying the company’s strategy in the Rhone Valley. Its 4 regional divisions also have the task of carrying out the projects of the Missions in the General Interest (MGI) within the territories concerned.
