Also this year, the Advanced Virtual Assistant includes useful information for shareholders and for those persons interested in acquiring shares of Iberdrola, including:

WE ENCOURAGE THE ENGAGEMENT OF OUR SHAREHOLDERS

Iberdrola group was the first Spanish company (and one of the pioneers worldwide) to approve a Shareholder Engagement Policy that clearly formalises the company's commitment to favouring dialogue and closeness with its shareholders. One of its main objectives is a proactive search for two-way interaction with shareholders in order to encourage their engagement in the company's corporate life and forge a sense of belonging.

The General Shareholders' Meeting is unquestionably the main channel for shareholder participation. For that reason we at Iberdrola strive each year to improve their experience and make it increasingly accessible, transparent and inclusive, applying the international ISO 20121 standard regarding sustainable event management systems. The General Shareholders' Meeting has been considered a sustainable event certified by AENOR since 2016 and has the Erronka Garbia environmental seal given by the Basque Government through the state-owned company Ihobe.

Also for this purpose, in 2005 the company began to publish the Shareholder's Guide, which in 2019 became an interactive solution and in 2020 evolved to become the Virtual Shareholders' Assistant, always with the aim of facilitating and further speeding consultations regarding all information related to the Meeting. This year, with AVA, we take another step in engagement with our shareholders. At Iberdrola we continue working to gain first-hand knowledge of the interests of our shareholders through dialogue and participation.
