The Corporate Environmental Footprint (CEF) is defined as: “A multi-criteria measure of the environmental performance of a goods/services providing organization from a life cycle perspective. The main objective of a CEF is to reduce the environmental impact derived from the organisation's activities.”

The Iberdrola's Environmental Footprint objectives are:

  • Understand and compare objectively the effect of our activity in the different environmental impact categories, trace their cause, identifying the environmental aspects and the assets/technologies/regions responsible of them. This will be an extra element of information for the company's management system.
  • To have a single environmental indicator that allows to: 
    • Measure to improve, developing activities to reduce the environmental impact, with the aim of: 
      • Improve efficiency.
      • Improve our reputation.
      • Improve our competitiveness.
      • Benchmark.
      • Communicate the company´s impact.
    • Ensure the fulfilment of the company´s international agreements for environment protection.
