The Iberdrola Group, a world leader in the fight against climate change, is part of the New York Climate Week 2023 (held from 17 to 25 September). A global opportunity to join efforts to accelerate climate action and assess the progress of this commitment ahead of COP 28, to be held in Dubai from 30 November to 12 December 2023.  

Issues around the energy transition and transport , emerging trends towards net zero, and the green economy are part of the current debate to drive climate action. That's why New York Climate Week creates an ambitious platform to bring together the most influential leaders from business, government and the climate community, along with the UN General Assembly and the City of New York, to explore what the international response to today's multiple interconnected crises should be.

This year's theme will revolve around ten major themes: built environment, energy, environmental justice, transportation, finance, sustainable living, nature, politics, industry, and food.

Iberdrola, at the forefront of climate action

Iberdrola has invested 120 billion euros in renewable energies, electricity grids and storage over the last two decades. A pioneering commitment to clean energy that has placed it in a leading position in terms of climate action, with CO2 emissions that are already six times lower than those of its European competitors.

But the group's climate commitment does not end there: Iberdrola has pledged to invest an additional 150 billion euros by 2030 to continue to lead the energy transition facing the global economy. Its goal is to achieve carbon neutrality in Europe by 2030, 20 years before the horizon set by the Old Continent, and to be a carbon neutral company globally by 2050.

With its support for initiatives such as New York Climate Week, Iberdrola stresses the need to act urgently to keep global warming below 1.5 ºC and mitigate the effects of climate change on the planet. This will only be possible by joining efforts of all agents from all geographies and sectors to multiply the effectiveness of individual commitments and find new solutions.

In this respect, the electricity industry plays a key role. Renewable energies, smart grids and the electrification of energy uses will be the key vectors for the decarbonization of the economy. And Iberdrola group is working to remain at the forefront of this green transformation.
