The EDF Energy and London Eye partnership offers a great view of London, and also a new vision. As London 2012 approaches the Capital will be at the centre of the world’s attention and EDF Energy is striving for the vision to be realised: of a city committed to cleaner, lower-carbon living.
Sustainability is at the heart of EDF Energy and we are passionate about finding the balance between fulfilling human needs with the protection of the natural environment. EDF Energy believe businesses have a vital role to play in tackling the world’s biggest environmental and social challenges.
As Britain’s largest producer of low carbon electricity, EDF Energy wants to lead the energy change, and is working with governments, transport providers, business, attractions and institutions to create a city and a country that’s healthier and more enjoyable for visitors and residents alike.
The EDF Energy vision of London starts with The London Eye itself. The iconic attraction is part of the Mayor’s Green500 scheme, which aims to reduce the capitals C02 emissions. And now it is powered by EDF Energy.
EDF is the first official sustainability partner of London 2012. The Olympic and Paralympic Games in 2012 are Britain’s showcase to the world, and EDF Energy will supply the Olympic Park during the Games and use our involvement to inspire future low carbon innovations.
Electric vehicles have a great role to play in improving city life. The Mayor's office reports that they could be responsible for up to 40% less carbon emissions than some petrol cars. To support them in making London’s air cleaner, EDF Energy recharging points will be placed in and around Olympic Venues and key London boroughs as part of the Olympic legacy.
