Wherever our Group operates, we want to invent a new energy model to address the climate crisis: lower-carbon, more efficient, less impact on the environment and on people.

Our raison d'être is to build a net zero energy future with electricity and innovative solutions and services, to help save the planet and drive wellbeing and economic development.

We welcome the Skolkovo Foundation’s initiative in launching the “Green Tech Startup Booster” with the support of Russia’s Ministry of Natural Resources and Environment. Fighting climate change is one of EDF’s fundamental goals and now is the time to act on it. We are convinced that the energy transition is a collaborative effort, and we work every day in France and internationally with those who innovate for an electric future. We see a huge potential in Russia for innovation and the reduction of carbon emissions. In this regard, our participation in the “Green Tech Startup Booster” seeks to develop new business models that address the climate crisis and contribute to a CO2 neutral future.
