It is also outstanding as the cleanest electricity company in the USA, with almost zero emissions.

The strategy focuses on the company's Stakeholders, establishing a permanent dialogue with them. The company trusts in digital transformation as a means to face the challenges of the future energy scenario with success, according to two cornerstones: technology and innovation.

Iberdrola is now embarking on a new stage of growth, supported by a strong investment drive between 2016 and 2020, essentially in regulated businesses or with long-term contracts, which will provide the security, stability and visibility that are the hallmarks of the company's business model. Likewise, Iberdrola will continue maintaining its social commitments, acting as a driver for the growth and generation of employment in the countries in which it operates, and creating sustainable value for its Stakeholders.



To maximise the competitiveness of its business model, Iberdrola has organised the management of its activities around three global businesses: networks, wholesale and retail and renewables.

On account of which, the group is currently working on the construction of various flagship projects which have become veritable milestones for the group in terms of their importance, size and commitment to innovation.

At the close of the Fiscal Year 2017 Iberdrola has secured a net profit of 2,804 million euros, which is 3.7% higher than the same period in the previous year, thanks to the company's resilience and international diversification, compensating the impact of the low output in Spain.
