Our four main commitments of this stake
EDF: an ambitious carbon trajectory
Carbon offsetting solutions
Adaptation to the climate change
Development of electricity uses and of utilities
Reach the carbon neutrality in 2050
The EDF Group was one of the first to set, right from 2018, the objective to contribute to the achievement of the carbon neutrality by 2050. In 2020, the EDF Group set new objectives to decrease greenhouse gases by 2030, including at the same time its direct emissions (scope 1) and its indirect emissions (scope 2 and 3).
The R&D support in terms of carbon neutrality
The R&D of the EDF Group supports the corporate strategy in terms of carbon neutrality carrying out an active monitoring of the negative emission technologies and exploring in particular solution like the CO2 (CCS) capture and storage or the solutions based on nature.
Decarbonisation using electric mobility solutions
With the electric mobility plan, initiated in October 2018, EDF aims 30% of market shares in the electricity supply of the electric vehicles in 2023 on the 4 main Corporate markets (France, United Kingdom, Italy and Belgium), the development of 150,000 charging stations and 10,000 stations of smart charging by 2023.
