As the world's leading power producer with no direct CO₂(1), emissions, as early as in 2018 EDF set a target of achieving carbon neutrality by 2050. In 2020, the Group set itself on a trajectory to reduce all its emissions (scope 1, 2 and 3) by 2030, approved by the SBTi(2) on a "Well Below 2°C" pathway, and committed to a climate transition plan approved by 99.87% at its Annual General Assembly in 2022(3).

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.
 

Doing even more to reduce CO₂ emissions
Carbon offsetting solutions

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.
