Building a CO2-neutral energy future, reconciling preservation of the planet, well-being and development, thanks to electricity and innovative solutions and services: this is the EDF Group's raison d'être. In the face of the climate emergency, we want to invent a new energy model: one that emits less CO2, is more efficient and more respectful of the environment and people.

Beyond innovation and creativity, which are intrinsic values of the Palais des Festivals and Congresses of Cannes, it is the human value we share. If TEDx is inspiring it is thanks to the personalities that make up each edition, in their individuality and combination. The strength of a company, in the digital age, is also the creation of human value. Each individual is able to infuse a positive and contagious energy, creating a strategic driving value for the company.
