What we’re doing today, tomorrow and in the coming years to help Britain achieve Net Zero
Our purpose is to help
Britain achieve Net Zero
We are the country’s biggest zero carbon electricity generator and support customers in decarbonising their energy usage.
We are leading the transition to a decarbonised energy system across our seven business areas:
- Generating electricity and delivering decommissioning responsibly
- Supplying electricity and gas and energy solutions to domestic and business customers
- Leading on new nuclear in the UK by building a power station at Hinkley Point C
- Developing further new nuclear power stations, including Sizewell C
- Developing, constructing and operating wind, solar and battery assets through EDF Renewables UK
- Technical services, energy and low-carbon solutions at customer sites through Imtech
- Electric mobility, including majority ownership in Pod Point, a leading UK charging point company
In 2020, we made a commitment to help the UK achieve Net Zero emissions by 2050. It is now more important than ever that we do this in an affordable, secure and responsible way
It underpins our strategy, and helps our activities be compatible with achieving our objectives in a sustainable and fair way.
We are working to achieve Net Zero in a sustainable way – environmentally, economically and socially
We are committed to driving progress in line with the UN’s Sustainable Development Goals, the ambitions set at COP26; initiatives such as Race to Zero, and we are right behind the UK government’s Net Zero and Energy Security Strategies.
Recent energy price increases, driven by global gas prices and the war in Ukraine, are strongly impacting the UK operating environment creating affordability challenges for customers and significant financial pressures on energy suppliers. We are highly engaged with the Government and Ofgem to identify solutions to help ensure energy is affordable and that regulation drives a resilient, competitive energy market that brings benefits to customers, whilst supporting customers, colleagues and communities through this challenging period.
Ensuring energy security without an excessive cost on household and business finances, or the planet, requires a low-carbon, efficient energy system. We are a leading investor and industrial developer of wind, nuclear and solar generation alongside energy storage, efficiency and other new technologies to support the transition to a low carbon economy.
Helping our customers
We aim to be a UK leader in key low-carbon customer solutions and we have a long standing commitment to helping vulnerable and fuel poor households.
Zero carbon electricity
We are Britain’s biggest zero carbon electricity generator, operating, developing and constructing a fleet of nuclear, wind and solar.
We believe all harm is preventable so our aim is Zero Harm. Every job will be done safely, no matter how important or urgent it is.
