The Group wants to develop itself in a responsible way that is the reason why it commits itself to preserving and to developing a dialogue and consultation culture in the projects led by the Group, to contributing to the development of the territories within which it operates, to developing industrial branches and a responsible behaviour within the framework of its digital development.

Our four main commitments of this stake

  • The dialogue and the consultation

  • The responsible development of the territories

  • The development of the industrial branches

  • The sustainable and inclusive digitalisation

UN Sustainable Development Goals concerned:

Goal 09: Industry, Innovation and infrastructureGoal 12: Responsible consumption and production

Responsible development of the territories

Building of the Nachtigal dam in Cameroun

During its operation in 2024, the Nachtigal hydroelectric dam, in the Centre region of Cameroun, will allow to cover almost 30% of the country electricity needs. This project will bring an answer to the increasing electricity demand, producing an energy locally available and weakly emissive (845,000 t of CO₂ avoided per year). It will also contribute to the creation of more than 23,000 direct or indirect jobs. An ambitious environmental and social programme supports this future installation.

Responsible digitalisation

Our certified low carbon digital change

A low carbon digital change, energy efficient, inclusive and with environmental added value for the employees and the customers.
Since March 2021 EDF is the first energy company certified Responsible Digitalisation by the Responsible Digitalisation Institute (RDI). This distinction recognises in particular the EDF commitment in terms of responsible design of its IT services, of digitalisation accessibility and of digitalisation innovations in favour of environment and of decrease in the impact of the IT tools.
