Renewable energy, key to tackling climate change
To mark the Climate Action Summit — held on 23 September in New York as part of Climate Week — Iberdrola group chairman, Ignacio Galán, gave an interview to TV channel Bloomberg to talk about the company's commitment to fighting climate change. Here is a summary of the most important ideas:
- The young are demanding urgent action on climate change.
- World and business leaders must present clear responses to protect the planet and accelerate the transition to clean energy.
- The sense of urgency is driving global awareness and encouraging companies like Iberdrola to speed up investment in renewable energy.
- Onshore wind and solar are now the most competitive energy sources and are displacing fossil fuels.
