Sustainability

Sustainability is a central part of our mission, vision and values. Not only because we are a renewable energy company but for our environmental, social and economic best practices.


Environmental Dimension

To protect the environment, we complement our strategy of fighting against climate change with an environmentally responsible management of our solar and wind farms.

Social Dimension

We work everyday to maximize the potential benefits of our activity in the communities where we operate and committ to forming a meaningful part of those communities.

Economic Dimension

EDPR’s wind farms and solar parks provide economic benefits to the surrounding communities throughout their lifecycle.

Our Commitments

EDPR, as a renewable energy company, creates great demand in its stakeholders about Sustainability. Responding to these expectations, EDPR has been committed to the UN Global Compact corporate responsibility initiative and its principles since 2012.

By incorporating the principles of the Global Compact into its strategy, policies and procedures, and establishing a culture of integrity, EDPR not only defends its basic responsibilities with people and the planet, but also sets the stage for long-term success. Following this long-term commitment, 10 Sustainability goals were defined within the 2019-2022 Business Plan, framed by eight of the seventeen Sustainable Development Goals.
