This year, once again, we have been chosen as one of the most sustainable companies by the Global 100 index
- The company led by Ignacio Galán is once again among the top 25 companies in the world in terms of sustainability criteria, according to the annual Corporate Knights index
Iberdrola has been selected as one of the most sustainable utilities worldwide, according to the Global 100 Most Sustainable Corporations in the World index, prepared annually by the publication Corporate Knights. The company headed by Ignacio Galán is also one of the top 25 companies in the world in this ranking.
Corporate Knights is a media and investment research company trusted for its unrivalled track record in providing ESG (environmental, social and governance) information, objectives and analysis. It enables significant engagement with many of the world's most influential corporate, political and investment decision makers, becoming a brand synonymous with sustainability.
Ranking in the Global 100 is a badge of honour for sustainability excellence and is proven to increase investor confidence. The Global 100 index is financially resilient, consistently outperforming the MSCI ACWI benchmark index since its inception almost seventeen years ago.
In order to compile the ranking of the 100 most sustainable companies in the world, more than 8,000 listed companies with revenues of more than $1 billion were analysed, and those that have carbon, hinder climate policies and cause extreme deforestation with their activity were discarded.
Once this selection has been made, Corporate Knights analyses indicators covering resource management, employees, financial management, revenue and green investments, and supplier performance.
Iberdrola, in addition to belonging to the Global 100 index, is also present in the main international sustainability indices, including the Dow Jones Sustainability Index, MSCI, CDP, FTSE4Good, Sustainalytics, Bloomberg GEI, Euronext Vigeo Eiris indices, EcoVadis, etc.
