In 2020, the EDF Group took 17 commitments under the act4nature France initiative and at international level commits to:
Strengthen governance on biodiversity issues
EDF intends to have an efficient governance system to address biodiversity on a groupwide scale. A groupwide operational organisation guideline on biodiversity will be shared with its business units and subsidiaries by 2021.
Extending the scope of its Green Bonds
The EDF Group was a pioneer in the issuance of Green Bonds for renewable energies (in 2013). Via a new GB Framework, EDF is now extending the scope of its Green Bonds to cover biodiversity (issuance calendar depending on market conditions).
An awareness & training programme
The EDF Group intends to further develop the awareness of its personnel on biodiversity issues by creating dedicated instruments (training, e-learning, Fresque de la biodiversité®, etc.). More than 1,000 employees will have attended training and/or awareness sessions by 2022.
EDF Foundation, for 2020-2024, will support projects in favour of biodiversity.
