EDF, a responsible player committed to the climate
This round table aimed to discuss the theme of "The role of industry in building a sustainable future and adapting to climate change".
Key partners from the energy and environment sector in the UK were present, such as the National Grid, the Environment Agency, the environmental regulator for the nuclear industry in England, the Met Office and Anglian Water. The discussions were moderated by Liz Bentley, Chief Executive of the Royal Meteorological Society.
EDF Group executives also took part in the discussions, including Paul Spence, Director of Strategy and Corporate Affairs at EDF UK, Bernard Salha, Group Technical Director and Director of R&D at EDF, Rémi Bussac, Head of Climate at EDF's Sustainable Development Division, Sylvie Parey, Senior Climate Researcher at R&D, Dafni Sifnioti and Amélie Joly, Researchers on natural hazards and climate at the R&D UK Centre.
We recalled the actions taken by the Group to adapt to climate change, a constant concern at the heart of its strategy and raison d'être. EDF is pursuing the objective of achieving carbon neutrality by 2050, notably through a mix of nuclear and renewable energy generation and the development of low-carbon services.
