Carbon Footprint

EDF publishes annually a Carbon Footprint over the entire EDF Group on the 3 scopes covering the main greenhouse gas emissions sources defined by the GHG Protocol[1].

In 2022, the Group's carbon footprint emissions continue to fall, despite the context of the energy crisis in Europe and the very sharp drop in nuclear production in France linked to the phenomenon of stress corrosion. The Group's total emissions are 120 MtCO₂e, down 7% compared to 2021.

[1] The Greenhouse Gas Protocol Initiative, more commonly known as the GHG Protocol, is the most internationally recognized GHG accounting method. Introduced in 1998 by the World Resources Institute (WRI) and the World Business Council for Sustainable Development (WBCSD), it was developed in partnership with companies, NGOs, and governments. It provides a set of resources, tools, and data for carbon footprint calculation [].
