Suppliers are strategic Stakeholders within the Iberdrola group, and as such as they are considered our business partners. The Purchasing and Insurance Division engages the supplier from the very first contact with the group and maintains a proactive attitude towards the external requirements and the development of new capacities. At all times, the company seeks to guarantee a fair, transparent and ethical value chain.
