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.


Here you can consult the main indicators of environmental scope of the new digital report of the Corporate Environmental Footprint (CEF) of the Iberdrola group by selecting the country or type of business from which you want to know the data.

The Iberdrola group'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.
  • Have a single homogeneous methodology for the whole group that allows: 
    • Measure to improve, developing activities to reduce the environmental impact, with the aim of:
      • Improve operational efficiency.
      • Improve our reputation, through transparency.
      • Promote innovation.
      • Make possible intern and extern benchmarking.
      • Reduce environmental risks. 
  • Ensure the group's commitment to transparency.

The calculation of the Endpoint provides us with a final value for the company's global environmental performance by grouping the different environmental impacts into a single score. In turn, the Endpoint score values for each impact category are also reported:
