The foundations of the fight against climate change in the Iberdrola group.

The Climate Reality Project

This initiative was created in 2006 by Al Gore, the Nobel Laureate and former Vice President of the United States to highlight the risks of climate change and the need to adopt emergency measures to reduce the consequences of global warming.

The Climate Reality Project currently has more than 15,000 climate leaders worldwide — more than 230 in Spain —, and works under the premise that the current generation is the only one with sufficient tools to reverse climate change and the last to have the opportunity to stop it.
