“The fight against global warming is an opportunity”
To mark his attendance at the World Economic Forum meeting in Davos, Iberdrola chairman and CEO Ignacio Galán, who has been a regular for the last 15 years, told the Spanish newspaper La Vanguardia that he agrees we are in the throes of a climate emergency and how pleased he is that this topic is the focus of debate.
According to Galán, “the fight against global warming is an opportunity and will generate significant benefits for society, not only environmental, but also by reducing energy dependency, supply security, electricity prices and by improving health”.
He also warned that we are experiencing a climate emergency, in response to which action is required “not only regarding supply, but also demand, through the electrification of transport”. “Less talk and more action: time is running out”, he added.
In this regard, he reiterated that the company is the world leader in renewables, with 31,000 MW of installed capacity, generating zero-emissions energy in the United Kingdom, Germany, Portugal and the United States.
