Transparency and traceability in investments
The Group is confirming its level of commitment as a regular “Green” issuer, contributing to growth and liquidity on this market and increasing visibility for investors who take part. Indeed, EDF has partnered with the rating agency Vigeo, which evaluates projects’ environmental and social eligibility criteria, and with the Deloitte firm, whose role is to certify the use of funds. By committing to showing statutory auditors that projects meet the criteria, EDF is able to guarantee to investors that projects respect human rights, the environment, and the health and safety of employees, suppliers, and local stakeholders. So that investors can measure the impact of funds entrusted to EDF, the Group also regularly publishes information on the management of collected funds, the different types of projects being financed, and their benefits in terms of avoided CO2 emissions.
