Social responsibility

Our social responsibility does not end with a patronage policy. It is a serious commitment to the values we stand for, which are fundamental to strengthen the link between EDP and the Portuguese society. 

Fundação EDP

EDP Foundation is a private institution that invests the most in the third sector in Portugal, and a major investor in the cultural field. Much of their investment reverts to sustainable projects, both in terms of own production or in patronage shed, its focus.

The Foundation combats social exclusion, focusing on the development of talent and cultural training, and supports innovative projects geared to the development and fostering of entrepreneurship. It has been attentive to local products and businesses, and has invested in this segment, especially in the regions of the dams.
