In 2020, the EDF Group developed its ambitions during the five-year signature of the Paris Agreement for Climate. The Group thus got the certification from Science Based Targets(1) of a developed trajectory to decrease the CO2 emissions well below 2 °C.

A dedicated governance was implemented in relation with the best practices recommended by the Taskforce on Climate related Financial Disclosure (TCFD).

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

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.
