The world needs to change.
For that, each of us has to change our habits first.
Having a more sustainable planet takes teamwork.
We all have to be agents of change.
Are we going to change the world together?
Now or Never
At EDP, we believe we have a role to play. We want to ensure sustainability, social responsibility, and environmental respect. Therefore, we have defined 9 themes - inspired by the Sustainable Development Goals - and, for 9 months, we will talk about sustainability. Because together we can change the world.
Now or Never
17 Sustainable Development Goals
In 2015, the United Nations defined 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). And with these SDGs, a deadline to comply with them: 2030.
These goals aim to end poverty, combat inequality, and prevent climate change through the joint work of governments, businesses, and citizens.
EDP has set concrete goals for more than half of these SDGs, setting very clear goals for their fulfillment.
90% renewable production by 2030
The road to sustainable development requires renewable energies and respect for energy-saving principles - two key concepts within the EDP universe. Thus we want 90% of our energy production and 85% of our installed capacity to be renewable by 2030. Moreover, we are committed to creating products and services that result in energy savings of 5TWh for our costumers by 2022.
Reducing 90% of CO2 emissions by 2030
Climate change has been accelerating. EDP is determined to reverse this trend. We want to reduce 90% of our CO2 emissions by 2030, compared to 2005 figures. We also mobilize society to tackle climate change by implementing volunteering and awareness-raising initiatives.
