Our raison d’être is to build a net zero energy future with electricity and innovative solutions and services, to help save the planet and drive wellbeing and economic development.

Wherever our Group operates, we want to invent a new energy model to address the climate crisis: lower-carbon, more efficient, less of an impact on the environment and on people.

Cap 2030, our strategic project

For EDF, fighting climate change is based on two levers: energy efficiency and energy decarbonisation. Our strategy focuses on three pillars: innovation for customers, low carbon and international growth.

Proximity to customers

Serving nearly 40 million customers around the world means that we have to constantly innovate and reinvent ourselves in order to fulfil their expectations.

Energy respectful of the climate

EDF's carbon footprint is one of the lowest in the world. This performance is due to the strong position of nuclear power and the development of renewable energies, whose share will double by 2030.

Supporting the world's energy transition process

Operating on every continent, EDF is supporting the global energy transition movement by exporting its expertise in nuclear energy, renewable energies and energy services.
