EDPR plays an important role in society as a driving force in economic development and as a source of employment and value. The company’s behavior and its relation with the community is guided by our social responsibility principles: Contribute to EDPR’s integration with the communities that we work in; Foster initiatives to improve EDPR’s social responsibility standards and practices; Achieve sustainable growth while creating value for all stakeholders. Some of these initiatives include the following:
The Company offers a structured volunteer program to facilitate volunteering efforts for various local causes and organizations. We promote the development of society through volunteering and encourage our employees in helping those with fewer resources.
The Company sponsors events in the communities for different charitable causes. In the US, we sponsor the Annual MS150 bike ride from Houston to Austin benefiting research for Multiple Sclerosis.
We establish a relationship of trust and collaboration with the communities where we have presence from the very initial stages of our projects by organizing informative sessions and holding open dialogs with these communities to explain the benefits of wind energy.
