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.
