environmental sustainability

The international leadership of Iberdrola in terms of environmental sustainability is on the table. Our main target is balancing today's needs with tomorrow's limitations, thought the promotion and support of a sustainable business model.

 Committed to a sustainable energy business model

  • 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.

    We present the documentary Hacia un planeta verde in which experts analyse the causes of climate change and propose energy transition to a carbon-free model as a solution to mitigate its effects.

  • Ecovillages are small, self-sufficient communities that live from and for their natural surroundings. There are more than 10,000 ecovillages in the world, mainly in rural areas where their inhabitants build societies based on cooperation, self-sufficiency, renewable energies and ecological materials. Find out how they work...

    The electrification of transport and residential heating and the obtaining of electricity through renewable energies will be the key factors in decarbonising the European economy by 2050. This is the main conclusion that can be drawn from the study prepared by the consultancy AFRY (formerly POYRY) for Iberdrola, which establishes a roadmap for the energy sector on the continent.

  • Human action is causing an increase in global temperature. For that reason, the greenhouse effect, far from being our great ally as was the case in the past, is now a risk to our survival. The flooding of coastal cities, the desertification of fertile areas, the melting of glacial masses and the proliferation of devastating hurricanes are just some of the main consequences.

    Natural resources are those that the planet offers without the need for human intervention. They are essential our survival, but if they are consumed at a faster rate than their natural regeneration, as is currently the case, they can be exhausted. Then, we review the consequences and possible solutions to this problem.
