EDF Group becomes premium partner and official supplier of electricity and gas for the Paris 2024 Games
The EDF Group becomes the Paris 2024 Olympic and Paralympic Games’ Premium Partner, joining the national partnership programme for Paris 2024 for a period of five years. The partnership was formalised by Tony Estanguet, President of Paris 2024, and Jean-Bernard Lévy, Chairman and CEO of the EDF Group. Committed to the world of sport for some 30 years and involved in the energy transition on a daily basis, EDF’s decision to take part in Paris 2024 fits in perfectly with the Group’s values and strategy.
The 2024 Paris Games are the commitment of a whole country, and Paris 2024 is keen to get the entire French population behind this historic event. As a large French business, with a presence throughout the country, EDF will be contributing to the success of this major national celebration.
This ambitious partnership gives us the chance to rally the EDF Group’s strengths to help boost the success and fantastic example set by these Games in terms of environmental responsibility.
EDF, official electricity and gas supplier of the Paris 2024 Games
Paris 2024’s ambition is to organise environmentally responsible Olympic and Paralympic Games with an objective to reach zero carbon emission by reducing as much as possible its emissions and by offsetting what couldn’t be cut. By becoming the official supplier of electricity and gas for the Paris 2024 Games, EDF will be making a vital contribution to achieving this goal. Furthermore, the EDF Group will be rallying its teams to offer innovative solutions to help make these Games a success. Last but not least, convinced that the Games constitute a unique, inspirational platform to change people’s behaviour, EDF and Paris 2024 will be making a commitment to raise awareness among the French about their energy consumption.
Celebrating the values of sport and the Olympic and Paralympic movement
Paris 2024 brings together the whole ecosystem of top-level sport, flying the flag for its values of performance, solidarity and respect. EDF recognises itself in these values, epitomised by a group of athletes supported by the Group for over fifteen years, Team EDF. Working closely with 4 French Federations (Disabled sports, Swimming, Canoeing/Kayaking, Football), EDF is making clear its desire to popularise and encourage sport and improve access to it for everyone. Thanks to Paris 2024 and its network of associations, this partnership offers an excellent opportunity to take this commitment even further thanks to many different initiatives celebrating sport and its values of inclusion.
