Reimagining business for a sustainable future

Why business engagement matters: We can power the future with clean energy, create safer household products and feed the world without warming the planet. But to get there, we need big solutions. Businesses that value sustainability can bring high-impact environmental solutions to scale — fast.

Our game-changing work: McDonald’s stopped selling burgers in foam packaging because of a groundbreaking partnership with EDF over 30 years ago. Since then, we’ve helped top companies around the world — like Danone, FedEx, GE and Sephora — find win-win solutions for people, profits and the planet.

How we supercharge corporate sustainability

For more than 30 years, EDF has brought cutting-edge science, policy and economic expertise to leading companies, driving game-changing solutions in these areas:

Climate policy leadership

Advocating for smart climate policy is the single most powerful thing companies can do to help fight climate change.

Net zero value chains

While many of the world’s largest companies have set some targets for decarbonizing, there’s a gap between ambition and action. We help companies turn climate pledges into progress with hands-on partnerships, practical trainings and resources.
