EDP is committed to the transition to a more environmentally friendly economy in line with the Paris Agreement and EU obligations to put in place long-term low emissions strategies by 2020 and to reduce its emissions 40% by 2030. EDP is addressing decarbonization challenge from the generation side through some low-C technologies such as renewables.
EDP believes green finance and green bonds in particular are an important tool to encourage the transition to a low-carbon economy, giving financial backing to existing projects or new ones aimed at bringing about this transition.
