EDF has set up the "Summer Challenge" as part of the PPA (Plan de protection de l'atmosphère).
The aim of the PPA is to improve air quality in communities at risk in order to preserve the health of the population. The main challenge is to reduce the concentration of air pollutants below the limit values set by law or by the WHO. These plans were introduced by the LAURE law (Loi sur l'Air et l'Utilisation Rationnelle de l'Énergie). They have therefore become compulsory for agglomerations of more than 250,000 inhabitants as well as for areas where the limit values are likely to be exceeded.
In this respect, EDF Commerce Nord-Ouest's management is continually committed to reducing greenhouse gas emissions by implementing actions such as the "Summer Challenge".
