The EDPR organisation model is organised around five main elements: a Corporate Center Holding, an Onshore Europe & Brazil platform, an Onshore North America platform, a New Geographies platform and, lastly, an Offshore platform.
The principles on which EDPR bases its organisational model is defined by the Executive Committee. These are a set of performance aspects that define the characteristics of the relationships, grant the rights between EDPR Holding and the business units, and ensure optimal efficiency and value creation.
EDPR Holding seizes value creation through the dissemination of best practices in the organisation and the standardisation of corporate processes to the platforms and the business units to improve efficiency. The internal coordination model and interface with EDP Group impacts functions and responsibilities of both the company’s processes and structure. The assignments of the main responsibilities and activities of EDPR Holding to fulfil their respective missions include:
- Define internal structures;
- Ensure a global budget and its periodic monitoring;
- Manage the essential human resources;
- Provide appropriate management information;
- Compete for a culture of excellence throughout the Group;
- Integrate risk management and compliance in each area of responsibility, ensuring the monitoring and effectiveness of controls.
