Strategic axes

The Social Investment goals are implemented giving priority to strategic axes. Through EDP’s Foundations and the various business units, proprietary and collaborative programs are developed with the Third Sector, that enhance corporate volunteering, mobilizing the skills of business units and employees, and promoting multi-stakeholder collaboration.

Education and awareness are essential means of achieving the goals, as well as the development of programs for local communities in the influence areas of the producing centers, in the distribution concession areas and in the client communities.

Volunteering is a fundamental pillar of the EDP Group's relationship with the communities and, at the same time, the development and motivation of its employees.
