Several panels of experts provide their outside view to Group managers and companies.
The International sustainable development panel is a body for dialogue made of independent, global specialists in fields relating to the Group's activities or who represent the expectations and interests of civil society. It also includes, as automatic statutory members, the Chairmen of the Sustainable development and Scientific Councils for France, as well as the Chairman of EDF Energy's Stakeholder Advisory Panel. The International sustainable development panel provides advice and a critical assessment of the Group's commitments to sustainable development and their implementation.
The Sustainable development council in France, whose members are also external personalities who are representatives of the issues associated with the impact of EDF's installations and businesses, challenges managers and experts at EDF as early as possible over the company's proposed options regarding sustainable development.
EDF's Scientific Council is a consultative body that gives the company well-known senior scientists' opinions and advice on the impact of scientific and technical developments on its business lines, and on long and medium-term research activities. It discusses specific themes, issuing detailed reports and recommendations to EDF's Chairman.
The Stakeholder Advisory Panel advises EDF Energy's management committee on corporate strategy and sustainable development.
