EDF sets out updated sustainability commitments

EDF Energy has launched its latest sustainability commitments, pledging to keep its prices competitive and supporting its most vulnerable supply customers.

The move comes as the energy supplier begins promoting its second annual “Green Britain Day” on 17 June with celebrities Danielle Lineker, Lauren Laverne and Jamelia.

The energy giant’s commitments to customers include reducing the proportion of CO2 arising from its customer’s energy consumption by 15% by 2020, committing to keeping its prices competitive.

It also says it will provide “enduring support for our most vulnerable supply customers” and lead the industry in protecting vulnerable customers from the adverse effects of power cuts.

Vincent de Riaz, chief executive of EDF in Britain, says: “Our industry leading Sustainability Commitments are a landmark because they address the key challenges of climate change, affordability and security of energy, and skills.”

“Our customers are at the heart of our plans. We will continue to do everything we can to protect our most vulnerable customers, keeping energy prices affordable and leading the industry in protecting vulnerable customers from the adverse effects of power cuts.”

The company also set out major commitments to deliver low carbon nuclear power responsibly and to address the most common areas of concern people have about nuclear energy.
