EDF Brasil views sustainability broadly and, as a signatory to the Global Agreement on Corporate Social Responsibility, we believe that a company can only be sustainable by combining economic performance, social progress and environmental preservation.

We understand that we are responsible for the results and impacts of actions on the economic, environmental and social environments affected by our activities. Therefore, sustainability and innovation are present in our operations, from the operation and maintenance area to research and development projects, also including our socio-environmental responsibility initiatives.

Pacto Global


EDF Brasil recognizes the importance of human rights, decent work, the environment and the fight against corruption.

Since 2014, the company has been a signatory to the Global Compact, when it made a formal and transparent commitment to adhere to the Ten Universal Principles derived from the Universal Declaration of Human Rights, the International Labor Organization Declaration on Fundamental Principles and Rights at Work, the Declaration of Rio on Environment and Development and the United Nations Convention Against Corruption.

Aware of its responsibility, EDF Brasil annually presents a Progress Communication on the Global Compact website, indicating efforts to make its commitments part of the company's strategy, culture and daily operations. More recently, the company has been working in light of the Cap 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development, also considering the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).
