• How is Edison working for sustainability?

    Our sustainability policy is based on four pillars for development:

    • people - protecting jobs and caring about health and safety in the workplace, along with enhancing diversity, dialogue, and professional development;
    • community - strengthening the bond with local communities
    • environment - management and mitigation of environmental impact, effort to reduce impact on climate, while making sure all users receive adequate energy supply.
    • market - transparency and fairness on the market.

    What are you doing to protect the environment at a local level? We adopt a three-pronged approach to protecting and safeguarding the environment at a global and local level:

    • application of certified environmental management systems,
    • use of state-of-the-art technology, so that we can steadily reduce emissions
    • training and awareness-raising among our own employees and in external companies

  • What are Edison's priorities in sustainability?

    • Sustainable energy: environment and climate protection to be achieved by promoting energy efficiency, by innovating production and distribution, by using resources in a sustainable way, by making an effort to preserve biodiversity, and through access to energy.
    • “Local content”: accountability towards people and regions, ensuring that the value of people is duly enhanced at a national and local level.
    • Clients: Commercial fairness, innovation, and quality of service 
  • How have you set your priorities?

    Key areas are identified through the materiality matrix, which draws a comparison between the economic, social, and environmental impacts of business activities and their influence on stakeholders' assessment. 

  • What is Shared Value?

    Creating Shared Value means carrying out actions with an economic value, while meeting social needs at the same time.

    Edison has embraced this philosophy to guide the planning and development of its initiatives and activities.

  • How does Edison make sure their suppliers meet sustainability criteria?

    When applying to become an Edison supplier, companies must become acquainted with the 231/2001 Organizational Model, with the Code of Ethics, and with the human rights policy. Edison has joined Global Compact's TenP project. This requires that suppliers be registered into a web platform that is shared with other companies, where they answer a self-assessment questionnaire that enables us to monitor the stance they take on human rights, labour, environment,  and fight against corruption.

  • With whom does Edison discuss CSR and sustainability?

  • How does Edison tackle climate change?

    • We have started a project on environmental risk management, in line with the objectives of the EDF Strategy of Adaptation to Climate Change. The main goal is to make our facilities more resilient to sudden events with a devastating impact.  
    • Our strategy intends to develop energy efficiency services -to ensure that  CO2 emissions are contained– and to carry out cooperation projects on the development of renewable sources in Europe and in third countries, within the framework of EU directive 2009/28/CE.
    • Within the EDF group, Edison is involved in the work towards COP21, the upcoming International Conference on Climate Change (link must connect to the COP21 page) that will be held in Paris in December.
    • In this respect, Edison is taking advantage of Expo Milan 2015 to promote workshops and debates focussing on climate change and its impact on natural resources and on geopolitics, and analyzing the specific features of the Mediterranean context and its ecosystems in the broader context of global warming.


  • What is Edison doing for the community?

    Edison is focussing on two fronts:

    • Energy savings, renewable sources, and energy-conscious behaviour. Edison is engaged in promoting initiatives aimed at creating the culture of climate, energy efficiency, and sustainable development through schools and the world of music, cinema, and sports.
    • Partnerships with non-profit associations:

    Edison believes this has a pivotal role in the way the company interacts at a local level. The company's community project must meet three key criteria: 

    • bond with the local communities where Edison operates;
    • involvement of Edison staff through voluntary activities;
    • focus on energy efficiency, access to energy, sports, culture, and on promoting the culture of sustainability.
