It is the first Spanish company to receive this recognition


Iberdrola receives the Financial Times award for the best Pro Bono Legal and Fiscal Project in the Sustainability category

Iberdrola has received the "FT Innovative Lawyers Awards" in the Responsible Business category for its Pro Bono project, the first Spanish company to do so.

The FT Innovative Lawyers Awards are held each year by the prestigious Financial Times newspaper and specialist consultancy RSG Consulting. The awards analyse the innovative landscape of the legal sector in Europe, rating the most disruptive projects carried out by leading law firms and in-house counsel at Europe's leading companies.

Iberdrola launched its Legal Pro Bono programme to encourage its Group's legal professionals to provide free legal services to non-profit entities that pursue general interest purposes (legal pro bono services), thus taking a further step in its involvement with society.

The award, which is the most prestigious in the field of legal innovation, was presented at a gala event held at the Natural History Museum in London on 21 September.
