[5.5] Sustainable Development

Organisation of sustainable development and social responsibility within the group

Iberdrola’s commitment to sustainable development is carried out by integrating the UN 2030 Agenda into the strategy and operations of the Iberdrola group. The group’s Social Responsibility is thus developed generically for all of the Areas and Businesses, in all countries.

The corporate Sustainable Development Committee and the Sustainable Development Committees of the country subholding companies coordinate social responsibility within the Iberdrola group. The Board of Directors’ Sustainable Development Committee performs the work of supervision within its purview.

“Responsible Energy for People” Plan

The most significant contributions towards achieving the SDGs are focused around two major foundations that inspire our actions:

  • We care for the planet, putting ourselves in the lead of the process of transition in the energy sector.
  • We contribute to the well-being and progress of the societies of all the territories in which we are present.

Iberdrola’s commitment has taken shape through various lines of work that cover more than 300 environmental, social and economic activities, thus responding to the expectations and needs of our Stakeholders, encompassed within 7 priorities.
