Climate change is one of the most important challenges that humanity is facing in the 21st century. The electricity sector plays a key role in achieving the purpose set by the Paris agreement to limit the rise in the planet's temperature and the greenhouse effects.
The proliferation of plastics and their impact on the environment is a pressing problem for the planet. Iberdrola, in line with the United Nations (UN) Sustainable Development Goals, is launching the Catch Lord Plastik, an initiative to raise awareness of this problem.
The plastics's invasion of the planet is a reality. Just remember that the plastic waste island floating in the Pacific Ocean now measures 1.6 million km2. If we want to save the planet, the time has come for each and every one of us to take action.
New York City (USA) will be the epicentre of the climate agenda in September. The city will host two pivotal events for measuring the degree of commitment to global warming. These are the United Nations Climate Action Summit on 23 September and the Climate Week NYC from 23 to 29 September. The next United Nations Conference on climate change (COP25) in Chile is on the horizon.
Not only is it a serious threat to the planet and to people, climate change is also threatening the global economy. This problem needs public-private sector collaboration to change the way we produce goods to other methods that guarantee and drive the development of sustainable economic growth.
The Financial Stability Board (FSB) created the Task Force on Climate-related Financial Disclosures (TCFD) in 2015, which is a working group to encourage companies to inform their investors about the risks related to climate change and the way in which they are managing them. Here, we present the progress made by Iberdrola in implementing the 11 recommendations prepared by this organisation.
