 Committed to a sustainable energy business model

  • At Iberdrola we are committed to local energy sources and purchases from local suppliers. In addition, the group is a pioneer in sustainable event management and promotes the implementation of electric vehicles through its Sustainable Mobility Plan.

    At a time when its focus has moved from climate action to how to tackle reconstruction post COVID-19, this year's New York Climate Week (September 21 - 27) was concentrating on the lessons we can learn from the current situation to help us move towards a carbon neutral future by way of a fair transition. Iberdrola group, worldwide benchmark in the fight against climate change, approached this summit convinced that the only way forward with respect to recovery is the green way and committed to developing a more robust, sustainable and resilient economy.

  • Masks are essential for stopping the spread of COVID-19 during the pandemic and they have become an every day accessory. However, what are the effects of huge increase in the use of disposable masks? The environment is in danger of being another victim if masks are not disposed of carefully.

    The planet's biodiversity is under threat and the main culprit is the one who, paradoxically, depend on it most: human being. Slowing down biodiversity loss, understood as the reduction or disappearance of the variety of living beings that inhabit the planet, is one of humanity's great challenges. Below, we review the causes, consequences and possible solutions.

  • Iberdrola is committed to achieving zero net loss of biodiversity by 2030. For this reason, Iberdrola's offshore wind power business has an Environmental Management System for all its projects that includes specific procedures for managing risks to the marine environment.

    Iberdrola group is the top producer of wind power in the world and a leader in renewable energy at the global level, thanks to its investments of more than €100 bn over the last 20 years. Within its commitment to the UN Sustainable Development Goals the company focuses particularly on SDG 7, affordable and Clean Energy, and is working to bring electricity to everyone and to optimise energy use.
