Environmental Management Strategy and Approach (GRI)

A sustainable energy model must meet various policy objectives:

  • Economic objective, which can be summarised as the need for stable, safe and competitive energy supplies (supply security and guarantee).
  • Social objective, summarised as access for all people to this essential service under affordable economic conditions (service competitiveness and universality).
  • Environmental objective, which translates to lower emissions and greater efficiency in the production and use of energy, as well as compliance with other environmental regulations.

The challenge in energy production is to offer a balanced production base, capable of responding effectively to scenarios of increasing fuel prices, variability of available renewable resources, internalisation of the CO2 cost and compliance with other local environmental regulations.

In a context characterised by a growing social demand for preserving the environment, ever stricter regulatory requirements, constant scrutiny of management by analysts, evaluators and different agents from civil society, IBERDROLA must respond to the environmental challenges and opportunities that arise.

The information in this section reflects the position, the indicators that enable the position to be monitored and the most important actions regarding each of the environmental aspects that affect the main activities at IBERDROLA.
