This is a call for action. The EDP Group is committed to achieving carbon neutrality in its operations, the innovative reuse of waste, enhancing biodiversity, promoting gender equality, reducing workplace accidents, ensuring full respect for human rights, and being internationally recognised for its ethical performance. At the same time, the EDP Group wants to grow its business, entering new countries and markets while ensuring innovation and competitiveness, efficiency and operational quality.

EDP is committed to creating a better future, and procurement is one of the pillars for achieving this goal. With our vast network of partners, we believe we can create points of change in the supply chain. EDP expects all partner companies to make a positive contribution to the success of the United Nations agenda.

We are playing our part. We are changing tomorrow now.

EDP Partners initiatives

 Partners Academy
 
In an effort to support companies that are part of EDP Brazil’s supply chain and want to improve their supply chain management, during the last two years, in partnership with the Sustainability department, we have carried out training focused on improving the Health and Safety and Quality and the Environment management systems and provided training to help suppliers align with ESG guidelines, such as diversity and inclusion. A total of 694 students from 105 companies have already completed online training in the 22 available courses.

Through the Partner Academy initiative, we seek to develop EDP Brazil's critical and non-critical suppliers as well as their respective sub-suppliers. To reach more partners and to maintain training during the COVID-19 crisis period, in 2020 we started using online technologies for partner training and development. The most popular courses were in the virtual live classroom model, providing training in improving environmental management, health, safety, quality and social responsibility. In 2020, we managed to increase training participation by 300% compared to the previous year, demonstrating the initiative’s success.

ESG Assessments
It consists of audits carried out at the supplier's facilities or remotely, preferably with its prior knowledge, allowing, according to the result obtained, to establish a corrective and improvement action plan for each supplier, enabling the EDP Group to guarantee the commitment of its entire supply chain to Corporate Sustainability issues.

​Through the ESG Assessments, EDP demonstrates its commitment to the creation of a stable and sustainable supply chain, assuming itself as an integral part of the supplier's development, focused on commitment, empowerment and increased competitiveness and not merely in audit activities oriented towards compliance. It is, without a doubt, a moment of experience sharing, proximity and value creation for all those involved.
