More than two decades ago, Iberdrola paved the way towards clean energy and took the first steps towards a more sustainable and responsible energy model. Now, the company is also paving the way to equality through sport. We have been promoting women's sport for years as a way of improving the recognition of women in society and promoting their empowerment and autonomy.
Our society has changed enormously in recent years. We live in an increasingly global world, where different cultures, races, genders and identities are ever more closely connected. And everyone's needs should all be covered equally. Iberdrola has been carrying out strategic actions to ensure diversity and inclusion for its workers, customers and suppliers, and to progress toward being a more diverse and inclusive society in all the countries where we are present.
The Tokyo Olympics will be held from 23 July to 8 August 2021, after a one-year delay due to the pandemic.
