Powering Sustainable Lives
In order to change the world we have to fight, in our daily lives, to achieve the UN Sustainable Development Goals – a set of goals outlined by the United Nations in 2015.
We must understand that we have a role to play, both as a company and a brand, in ensuring sustainability, social responsibility, and environmental respect.
And we must realize that we have the potential to create impact, and therefore to contribute to the progress and happiness of the world.
Sustainable Development Goals - SDG
In 2015, the UN agreed on 17 goals to improve the world until 2030. These Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) aim to end poverty, tackle inequality, and prevent climate change.
We give priority to the objectives in which we can have a greater impact. That is why we have committed to working on nine specific SDGs:
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.
