Climate Action is high in the global agenda and is also at the center of EDP’s strategic vision for the future.
We’re present in one of the most important moments of the year that brings together leaders and world decision makers: Climate Week and the opening of the 74th United Nations General Assembly (that will take place from September 17th to 30th).
During this period, some high-level events will take place, with a special highlight for the UN Climate Action Summit, in September 23rd.
During this week, the world is watching New York, where a range of events related to Climate Action reinforces the urge of being ambitious to limit the global warm increase up to 1.5ºC. That’s only possible with a new dynamic of joining efforts from many players – from countries, cities, private sector, academy and civil society.
Sustainable development is the base of our strategy. We’re recognized as one of the most sustainable companies in the world and we have clear commitments and goals that demonstrate our effort for decarbonization.
