We love Energy!
Fundação EDP is a private non-profit institution, classified as a 'general interest organization', and established in December 2004. Created by a cosmopolitan and socially responsible company, its mission is to help improve citizen's quality of life through social, cultural and scientific initiatives.
Created in 1997 as Fundación Hidrocantábrico, the institution became Fundación EDP in 2013. Its mission is to strengthen the EDP Group's commitment to environmental, social, cultural and educational sustainability in Spain.
Created in late 2007, Instituto EDP's mission is to implement the EDP Group's commitment to human and social development through access to citizenship, culture, sports and education in Brazil, encouraging citizens to rethink consumer attitudes and social engagement practices.
We dare to be volunteers!
Contributing to a fairer and more effective society in building its own sustainability: The EDP Group undertakes this commitment and involves its employees in this mission through its Volunteering Program.
We believe volunteering develops our people and their talents and skills, multiplies the purpose and meaning of what we do and actively contributes to the development and transformation of the communities where we operate.
Since its inception in 2011, the Program has had over 38,900 participants, totaling over 293,000 volunteer hours, and has partnered with over 2,500 organizations, impacting the lives of over 1,4 million people.

Volunteering in times of COVID-19
I dare know more than ever
We know that in an emergency situation such as COVID-19, it is essential to act NOW.
Under our Volunteering Program, there are already 22 initiatives combined between Portugal, Spain and Brazil, which are available to all EDP Group employees. We have a team of around 300 volunteers, 95 beneficiary NGOs, and we have helped more than 6500 people.
Approximately 1.3 billion people do not yet have access to electricity and about 2.6 billion people still resort to traditional methods for biomass-based cuisine. Energy and development are inseparable factors.
Of all forms of exclusion, electricity is one of the most significant.
Because we are an electrical utility of reference and our vocation of openness to the world and sustainability, we are committed to promoting access to energy (A2E) in developing countries, concentrating on remote and rural regions and areas without connection to electric grid, contributing to break their cycle of poverty.
