Accelerate social innovation
Throughout the country, social innovators are developing ideas and solutions to combat vulnerability. Major corporations are ill equipped to identify and assess these people championing new ideas. Neither are they able to support such projects to materialise and grow.
EDF forms partnerships with social innovation incubators to rapidly find and put in place innovative business models to respond to the challenges that are ignored by society to combat vulnerability and energy poverty in particular.
It was with this in mind that EDF initiated a partnership in 2017 with Ashoka. Based in France, the organisation has built up the world’s leading network of social entrepreneurs.
