Boycott EDF

Welcome to Boycott EDF!

EDF is one of the largest electricity companies, and heavily involved in nuclear power. EDF Energy, the British wing of EDF, is fully owned by the French state owned EDF (Electricity de France).

In France, EDF has many nuclear power stations, and is building a new European Pressurised Water Reactor (EPR) in Flamanville. In Britain, EDF is pushing heavily for nuclear new build, and wants to build new reactors at four sites, the first being Hinkley Point and Sizewell.
