From its creation, the EDF Group has innovated: from energy production and networks to services for customers of all sizes. Faced with climate change, the world is now in a race against time. Innovation has become more necessary than ever as half of the CO₂ emissions to be eliminated to achieve carbon neutrality by 2050 will be achieved through innovations that do not yet exist or are emerging. Faced with this challenge and in line with its raison d'être, the EDF Group has set itself the mission of expanding the range of opportunities to reach net zero faster.
