The multi-disciplinary gender-equal Stakeholder Advisory Committee brings together personalities from civil society. They will review and assess the Group's strategic directions.
Jointly chaired by Jean-Bernard Lévy, the EDF Group's Chairman and Chief Executive Officer, and Kalina Raskin, Director of CEEBIOS (European Centre of Excellence in Biomimetics of Senlis), the comittee is composed by 13 members: environmental and climate specialists, academics, student group representatives, consumer representatives and members of solidarity networks.
Set up for a period of three years, the Stakeholder Advisory Committee is extending the long-standing dialogue that the Group initiated with civil society through various advisory committees (sustainable-development advisory committee, scientific advisory committee).
EDF considers that its corporate social responsibility commitments form an integral part of its performance: the advisory committee will hold regular discussions with the Group's employees. Its recommendations will be addressed and an annual report on its activities will be issued.
« For a corporation with EDF's level of commitment to the environment and society, it is essential to be open to challenging and diversified appraisals. The establishment of this advisory committee is a great opportunity for moving our actions forward in line with our raison d'être. »
Jean-Bernard Lévy, EDF Group's Chairman and CEO
« Bringing together perspectives, skills and expertise from a wide range of backgrounds is essential for meeting the unprecedented and increasingly complex societal challenges that we are facing. EDF has a major role to play in the changes that need to be made. I am absolutely convinced that this advisory committee will be an active and valuable contributor to these efforts. »
