“The will to change is a renewable resource”

It was in 2017, on the stage of the Web Summit, that Al Gore, the former vice-president of the USA and Nobel Peace Prize winner in 2007, uttered this sentence. Five years have passed, but its relevance remains, as does the urgency of that change. At EDP, we believe that change is made with innovation and that is why, for the seventh consecutive year, we were partners of the largest technology conference in Europe, the Web Summit. With a new identity that visually translates the brand's commitments, we were at this Web Summit with around 180 participants and with the desire to strengthen EDP's commitment to innovation, entrepreneurship, and the start-up ecosystem, but above all to renewable energy. We want to be 100% green by 2030 and it is this goal that guides our action. Because we have chosen the planet.
