Approach

We are committed to sustainability

More than merely an objective, continuing to grow in response to the challenges of sustainable development is a commitment we have made. Sustainability is in the DNA of E-REDES.

Por imposição regulamentar a EDP Distribuição agora é E-REDES.

A Entidade Reguladora dos Serviços Energéticos (ERSE) determinou a separação de imagem entre operadores do mesmo grupo económico no âmbito do setor elétrico, nomeadamente do Operador de Rede de Distribuição, em linha com as indicações da Comissão Europeia. Nessa medida, todas as referências e/ou imagens relativas à EDP Distribuição, a partir da presente data e para os devidos efeitos legais e regulamentares, devem ser interpretadas como referência à E-REDES.

E-REDES wants to continue growing through a business model aligned with the challenge of sustainability. 

To this end, we have defined a sustainability strategy for 2020 and made an effective contribution toward meeting the sustainable development objectives approved by the United Nations (UN).
