Social Action


Social initiatives in collaboration with organisations from both the government and civil society are an important part of IBERDROLA’s engagement with the community. Detailed information on these activities can be found in both the annual reports and on the corporate websites of IBERDROLA’s subsidiary and affiliate companies in Spain, United Kingdom, USA and Brazil.

Corporate volunteer

Among the numerous social initiatives carried out, it is worth highlighting the corporate volunteer programme that has been under way for several years, and through which IBERDROLA promotes corporate volunteer work among its employees. This is a way of putting into practice the vision and values of the Company in the areas of improving people’s quality of life and in the care of the environment. These practices are aimed at:

  • reinforcing the sense of belonging and improving the working environment, 
  • contributing to the employee’s ethical education, encouraging solidarity
  • and promoting the values of participation, commitment, responsibility and teamwork, among others.

Key initiatives in this area include:

  • the international corporate volunteerism program, which directly or indirectly helped close to 500,000 people in 2014,
  • the International Volunteer Portal, an online meeting point for sharing experiences and strengthening the Group's global community of volunteers, currently available in Portuguese, Spanish and English, with AA accessibility level, enabling universal access to the website and its content,
  • the Iberdrola-São Paulo 2.0 programme, an international corporate volunteering project that aims to provide training for a group of young people at risk of social exclusion in Brazil, 
  • and a specific Chair at the IESE for promoting such collaboration.


Through its Foundations, the IBERDROLA Group fulfils its commitment to the communities in which it operates. These institutions contribute to improving the quality of life of people through energy, cultural and social development. Among their objectives are the promotion of training and research, the protection of the environment, the support for art and culture, and the furtherance of cooperation and solidarity.

Since June 2014, the Foundations Committee guarantees proper coordination among the different institutions, which are also governed by a 2015-2019 Master Plan 2015-2019 Master Plan approved by the Board of Trustees in December 2014.
