#diversity #integration

Iberdrola has certified its Results Presentations and Capital Markets Day web pages based on the Double A standard for accessibility according to the World Wide Web Consortium. The company is thus maintaining its commitment to promoting accessibility to its corporate web so that everyone is able to access it equally.

Following the audit carried out on 16 June 2021, ILUNION, an ONCE Social Group company, has certified that the web pages dedicated to Results Presentation and Capital Markets Day on Iberdrola's corporate website comply with the Web Content Accessibility Guidelines Web 2.1 (WCAG 2.1) established by the World Wide Web Consortium (W3C), at its Double A level.

Web accessibility is the combination of technology and standards of implementation and design that enable the greatest possible number of people to use the Internet, including those who have some form of disability. The Double A standard is the intermediate level set by the Web Accessibility Initiative (WAI) of the W3C and the one most commonly required. It is awarded to those pages that meet advanced criteria of web accessibility, such as the availability of subtitles for videos and the facility to increase text size, among others.

The WCAG are recommendations for web site accessibility. Their purpose is to ensure that all types of pages, including multimedia pages, work correctly for all users. In general, for a website to be accessible, no special design is necessary. It is sufficient for it to be flexible so that people can interact with it from different input devices (keyboard, mouse, etc.) and for the different technologies that it uses (Flash, Java, PDF or other plug-ins) to be compatible with accessibility.

In addition, these measures ensure that the pages are more manageable. By making browsing easier and allowing access to pages from various devices, their user experience, usability and search engine positioning are improved.

IBERDROLA, COMMITTED TO ACCESSIBILITY

Iberdrola has made it a prime objective to ensure that everyone, regardless of disabilities, age or the type of technology used, is able to navigate its website without encountering access problems. With this in mind, the design of its corporate website has been based on compliance with the WCAG, which also represent the basis of standards such as ISO/IEC 40500 and UNE 139803:2012.

After certifying the sections dedicated to Results Presentations and Capital Markets Day, the company continues to collaborate with ILUNION Technology and Accessibility to renew the Accessibility certificate issued in 2017 for the corporate website. Iberdrola is also working to revalidate the certification of the web page for its General Shareholders' Meeting, which reached the Double A level of the WCAG 2.1 and the UNE 139803:2012 standard in 2020. The group is, thus, responding to its commitment to sustainable events management, in its efforts to promote accessibility, inclusion and non-discrimination in the planning and execution of its main corporate events.

Iberdrola is working to curtail the use of text images on its corporate website and to increase the level of contrast of some items, as well as on other measures.
