EDP joins European initiative to fight climate change

Thursday 13, December 2018

The group will have an active presence at the COP24, which is happening in Poland, taking as central themes sustainable mobility and renewable energies.

EDP joined the Initiative Step Up Now EU, a European climate change movement supported by the World Business Council for Sustainable Development (WBCSD), which will be launched today at COP24 in Poland. The group is thus active in the conference again, with a focus on sustainable mobility and renewable energies, also taking part in debates and high-level decisions.

The Initiative Step Up Now EU will accelerate efforts to achieve the goal of carbon neutrality in 2050, bringing together partners from different areas of society who already have ambitious strategies and goals in this area. EDP will be one of these partners who are committed to strengthening the response to climate change, creating a joint vision and demonstrating the concrete actions that have been taken and which they intend to develop. Such commitments show that EDP adjusts its strategy in order to contribute to sustainable development goals (SDG), including climate action (SDG13).
