« In today's energy transition context, EDF intends to come in first place for low-carbon growth and to win praise as an efficient and responsible electrical utility. The Group's strategic planning project, entitled "Cap
2030", has set the goal of doubling EDF's renewable energy capacity over the next 15 years. »
— Corporate Responsibility lies at the heart of EDF Group strategy. It drives the way the company interacts with its internal and external stakeholders. Along these lines, six Corporate Responsibility Objectives have been defined, underscoring the Group's willingness to make lasting commitments to these priorities.
1) EDF has set a goal of surpassing requirements for meeting the 2°C target established in the Paris Climate Agreement by substantially reducing its CO2 emissions, which are already quite low.
2) EDF agrees to incorporate best practices from the world of industry as regards human development issues: health/ safety, gender diversity, and hiring through internal promotion.
3) EDF agrees to provide all vulnerable population segments with solutions to guide them in optimizing energy consumption and exercising their due rights.
4) EDF agrees to innovate through digital applications that target energy efficiency, thus allowing every customer to consume more wisely.
5) EDF agrees to systematically organize, for new projects proposed anywhere in the world, a process of dialogue that's both transparent and open to competing opinions.
6) EDF agrees to adopt a positive approach towards biodiversity that's not merely limited to mitigating the impacts of its activities.
