CEO Today - Europe Awards 2022

Miguel Stilwell de Andrade CEO of EDP In 45 years, EDP has become a leading multinational in the energy transition to renewables, present in the five continents. But at the heart of it all remains electricity, which moves people, businesses, and the planet. An increasingly greener planet, where EDP anticipates the transformations necessary for sustainability. Sustainability is part of our DNA. Today, 75% of all energy we generate already comes from renewable sources. But we want to go further - by 2030 we will be all green. To accomplish this vision, we rely on our innovation, our drive, our passion, and the energy of over 12.000 people at EDP that are already changing tomorrow now. More than 40 years ago we started as a utility in Portugal and grew to become a global energy major and a leader in the energy transition. Today we are present in 28 markets and have more than nine million clients in electricity and natural gas. And as our business expanded, our purpose and commitment to the planet also became stronger. We know that to win the race against climate change, the world needs structural transformation. And we want to drive that transformation, using the power of wind, sun and water on a global scale to accelerate decarbonization, leaving no one behind. All green by 2030 We have anticipated the transformation of the sector, and today we are at the forefront of the energy transition. Now, we are ready to take it a step further, taking advantage of our distinctive renewables portfolio and superior track record and capabilities. Accelerated and sustainable growth We will step-up green growth, with an unparallel investment level fully aligned with the energy transition. Our growth will be supported by our distinctive and resilient portfolio, and we remain focused in maintaining a solid balance sheet, to achieve a solid investment grade (BBB). Future-proof DNA We will evolve as a global, flexible and efficient organization, continuously investing in growth areas, consolidating our talented and empowered people. We will strengthen our focus in innovation while promoting a digital transformation. Attractive returns and ESG excellence We anticipated the transformation of the sector, and today we are an ESG reference. With our green leadership positioning, we will excel all ESG dimensions for superior long-term value creation while delivering superior value to our shareholder.
