Our four main commitments of this stake
The responsible management of the land
The integrated and sustainable water management
The circular economy and the waste management
EDF involved in the initiative of act4nature
The carbon neutrality stakes are inseparable from a step in favour of biodiversity in which EDF is involved since 2006. In 2020, the Group integrated two Corporate initiatives launched for nature – act4nature France - managed by the French Biodiversity Office – and International act4nature, an initiative led by a group of companies – Epe Companies for the Environment.
Restoration of the water collected for our production needs
99 %: this is the percentage of the restored water, sea water included, in 2020, on the 42 km3 collected to cool the production means of the EDF Group. If the Group collects a lot of water for its power plants, it consumes a little: the collected water can be instantaneously reused.
Give a second life to objects through reuse
The reuse platform was initiated so as to meet a strong stake for the EDF Group: contribute to the preservation of the planet and of its resources and to limit the CO2 emissions. Objective: give a second life to the equipment the company no longer uses.
Beyond the environmental and societal aspect of EDF Reutiliz, the platform aims at decreasing the waste and their costs and totally lies within the framework of the waste prevention policy followed by the WCEG (Waste and Circular Economy Group). The reuse is thus one of the 7 pillars of the circular economy.
