The background of the economic crisis and reduction in purchasing power is putting many French households in a situation of social poverty, one which is placing a burden on household budgets and is forcing people to make difficult choices. Because energy costs (all energy types combined: transport, heating, etc.) are one of the contributing factors to this poverty, EDF is paying particular attention to listening to its most vulnerable clients.
EDF is the official partner and electricity supplier for the Olympic and Paralympic Games, which held in London from 27th July until 12th August and from 29th August until 9th September 2012.
The preservation of biodiversity along with sustainable development both constitute key components of EDF's corporate commitment. As a responsible energy operator, EDF Group has earmarked the fight against climate change as one of its priority challenges. In response to growing energy demand, EDF delivers services mainstreaming energy demand management and environmental impact mitigation. EDF is the lowest CO2 emitter among the seven major European energy operators. In France, 95% of EDF's electricity output is CO2-free.
