As the world's leading power producer with no direct CO₂ emissions(1), EDF has set itself the target of achieving Net Zero Emission by 2050. The Group has thus committed to a trajectory of reducing all its emissions (scope 1, 2 and 3) by 2030 and 2050, in line with a +1.5°C warming scenario as assessed by Moody's(2).

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

UN Sustainable Development Goals concerned:

UN Goal 7: Affordable and Clean energyGoal 11: Sustainable cities and communitiesGoal 13: Climate action

Carbon trajectory

Net zero CO₂ emissions by 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. 8 years after the signing of the Paris Agreement, EDF Group is raising its ambition to limit CO₂ emissions, in line with UN guidelines for corporate engagement.
