EDPR France was named the “Best in Renewable Energy” in France as part of the 2015 Wealth & Finance Business Awards.

EDPR France was named the “Best in Renewable Energy” in France as part of the 2015 Wealth & Finance Business Awards. The awards aim to recognize “truly special firms” that have changed the view of an industry through innovative methods and outstanding results. They are awarded based on a thorough analysis of several sectors by an in-house research team at the news publication Wealth & Finance International.

“It is great to receive recognition like this 10 years after taking our first steps in France,” said Frederic Lanoë, EDPR’s country manager for France and Belgium. “Back then, renewable energies were still in their infancy in France, but we always believed that a modern country like this one, with the second best wind power resource in the EU and a robust power grid, would one day come to recognize the massive opportunities offered by wind power and renewables in general.”

Today EDPR France is one of the largest operators in the French market, currently supplying 340MW via 170 wind turbines located throughout the country.

EDPR also holds a 43% stake in a consortium with Engie (formerly GDF Suez), which holds 47%, and Neoen Marine, which holds 10%, to develop and build a 500MW offshore wind farm at Dieppe and Tréport and another off the islands of Yeu and Noirmoutier. EDPR is also closely studying the floating wind power tender launched by the French Government as the company is among the pioneers of this technology worldwide.

Frederic Lanoë, who is also President of the French Wind Power Association (France Energie Eolienne) said it is a positive development that there is now a specific award for renewable energy, noting that the industry is at a pivotal moment because of the burning issue of climate change and the vastly increased competitiveness of wind power.

“I sincerely hope it also helps the industry itself, since it represents a further opportunity to spread the message that renewables make total business sense,” he said. “Any initiative that contributes towards invigorating the industry is a positive step forward.”

The Carbon Disclosure Project has assessed EDP’s efforts to reduce emissions as being among the best in the world.

The Carbon Disclosure Project has assessed EDP’s efforts to reduce emissions as being among the best in the world.

EDP has been recognised by the Carbon Disclosure Project (CDP) as one of the world’s leading companies in the fight against climate change. This non-governmental agency has evaluated the transparency and effort made to reduce greenhouse gas emissions and to mitigate the risks of climate change. With a maximum score of 100A, EDP has joined the “A listers”, a classification granted this year to 113 companies – 5% of all the companies assessed.

This result has been published three weeks before COP21, the UN summit on climate change, which will bring together world leaders in an effort to reach a global agreement on the reduction of greenhouse gas emissions and to limit the rise in global temperatures, and highlighting the essential role companies will play in solving this problem.

The CDP used an independent methodology to analyse thousands of global companies, with EDP achieving the maximum score of 100 for transparency and reporting (CDLI) and an A for performance (CPLI).

At the request of 822 investors representing US$95 trillion in assets, the companies report their annual performance, providing investors with a level of comfort to assess the responsibility of companies and their ability to respond to new market requirements and emission regulations.
The Carbon Disclosure Project is an international non-profit organisation that provides the only comprehensive system for businesses that enables them to measure, disclose, manage and share important environmental information.

Recognised by this assessment, EDP’s strategy for combating climate change is a management priority. The Group has a set of commitments underpinning performance up until 2030, and which were recently presented at the United Nations, at the same summit where the new goals for sustainable growth were approved.

The Group is the only national reference to appear in the Ethisphere 2015 rankings, which recognized 132 companies globally.

For the fourth consecutive year, EDP has been included in the international ranking of “The World’s Most Ethical Companies – WME” by the Ethisphere Institute, the world leader in the promotion of ethical business practice standards.

The World’s Most Ethical Companies recognizes those organizations that have a significant impact on the manner in which business is conducted, through the promotion of a culture of ethics and transparency at all levels within the company.

To be recognized for the fourth consecutive year highlights EDP’s commitment to maintain the main standards and practices that guarantee value, over the long-term, for the different stakeholders, including our customers, staff, suppliers, regulators and investors.

In this context, EDP was considered a benchmark in the field of Energy and Utilities Electric, alongside another four companies at the global level.
EDP Group, the only Portuguese company included on the international index, was recognized not only for its adoption of good practices of sustainability and ethics in all its business areas, but also for its contribution to the entire value chain and to society in general, by promoting the shared values of integrity, responsibility and transparency in all its activities.

“Earning this recognition involves the collective action of a global labor force, from top to bottom. Accordingly, we congratulate all EDP employees for this extraordinary achievement”, said Ethisphere’s Chief Executive Officer, Timothy Erblich.

Recognition was granted as part of the Investor Relations & Governance Awards (IRG Awards), an initiative by Deloitte that rewards top performers in the Portuguese financial market.
