Without their work, commitment, dedication and daily performance, we could not continue to be a responsible, sustainable and resilient company


Mario Ruiz-Tagle, CEO of Iberdrola España, presented the Supplier of the Year Awards in Spain 2022, in an event that recognises the fundamental role that each collaborator plays in achieving the group's strategic projects and underlines the importance of creating an ecosystem of suppliers working towards the same objectives.

The award-winning companies share values such as safety, innovation, job creation and internationalisation and sustainability, collaborating with Iberdrola in its goal of a decarbonised economy through investment in renewable energy, smart grids, large-scale storage projects and innovative solutions for its customers.

In 2021 Iberdrola made purchases of more than €2.4 billion from around 4400 suppliers in Spain, 84% from local suppliers, figures that have already been similar in 2022, where in the first 10 months the volume invoiced is already close to €2 billion. 

The outlook for the next three years (2023-2025) is to reach €6 billion in three years and that in 2030 Iberdrola's activities will support more than 500,000 jobs, more than 85,000 in Spain.

Iberdrola has been recognising the efforts of its suppliers for decades, both in global and in local awards in the five main countries where it operates (Spain, United States, United Kingdom, Brazil and Mexico).

Our businesses in the different countries, as well as the corporate units (Environment, Quality, Innovation, Prevention, Sustainability, etc.). and the Purchasing unit itself select those suppliers who have been particularly outstanding in the performance of their contracts every year.
