The Paris Agreement established, for the first time, ambitious and global climate goals: “to keep the global average temperature rise well below 2 °C compared to pre-industrial levels and to continue making efforts to limit the temperature rise to 1,5 °C above pre-industrial levels”, as well as ensuring a neutral balance between the emissions and the removal through greenhouse gases (GHG) sinks, in the period from 2050 to 2100.
In February 2021, EDP presented its Strategic Update 2021-2025, including new ambitious emission reduction targets for 2025 and 2030 and the commitment to become carbon-neutral by 2030, anticipating in 20 years the European goal and contributing to the fulfilment of the Paris Agreement.
EDP established its climate action along 5 pillars.
Climate Action Pillars
We value international agreements and initiatives
EDP's commitment to the world is to achieve cleaner and greener energy. In addition to decarbonization, we are implementing measures to fight climate change, following the recommendations of the report by the Task Force on Climate-related Financial Disclosures (TCFD) and adhering to numerous international initiatives that promote sustainability.
