life cycle approach
Wind and solar power are two of the most environmentally friendly ways of producing energy.
Even though our business inherently implies a positive impact on the environment,
we continue to work on a daily basis to hold ourselves to a higher standard.
Proactive environmental management generates value and constitutes the duty of any socially responsible company. Our Environmental Policy reflects EDPR’s environmental strategy.
Health & Safety and Environmental Management System
The health, safety and well-being of our employees, as well as the protection of the environment, are a priority for EDPR.
These commitments are firmly set in the Health and Safety Policy and Environmental Policy and have been backed by the certification of both management systems for over 10 years.
Following the reference provided by the international standards ISO 14001:2015 and ISO 45001:2018, EDPR merged the Environmental Management System with the H&S Management Systems for a more global and efficient approach, simplifying processes and managing the potential risks of its activity. In 2020, the new Health, Safety and Environment Management System (HSEMS), where synergies play a fundamental role, was implemented and jointly certified by an independent certifying organisation.
