Communication channels

EDPR recognizes, through its management practices, that value creation takes place by involving various stakeholders and by identifying and managing their expectations. Maintaining a close dialogue is how we build trust, get to know the environment we operate in and minimize and ensure better control of different business risks, especially the risks associated with our “social license to operate.”
