IBERDROLA hosted the fourth edition of its Environmental Forum of Experts at its corporate headquarters in Madrid. The central theme was the company's Environmental Management System, emphasising the fact that the environment is a strategic variable in carrying out its activity.
Issues addressed in previous years include energy efficiency, climate change or biodiversity conservation. This group was set up as part of the company's commitment towards establishing ongoing constructive dialogue with its various stakeholders, with a view to learning how they perceive its efforts in this area and their expectations in this regard.
During this meeting, IBERDROLA staff members in charge of environmental management explained the structure of the Environmental Management System developed by the company with a view to contributing towards creating value for the Group and setting it apart from its competitors.
In this regard, the company highlighted that its environmental management aims to promote a model that is economically sustainable, profitable, and based on clean energy production, biodiversity conservation, combating climate change, promoting energy efficiency and maintaining excellent relations with stakeholders.
IBERDROLA also emphasised that respect for the environment has become a crucial element in meeting the current social and economic challenges, which call for a shift towards a more sustainable energy model, among other demands.
A pioneering initiative in Spain
This fourth meeting of the IBERDROLA Environmental Forum with external experts is another step forward in the company's effort to keep apace with environmental awareness in society and reinforce its commitment to its surroundings.
Another of the aims pursued by this project, which aims to bring current concerns to the table on an annual basis, is to meet commitments undertaken towards the external members. Each meeting includes an assessment of the progress made in previous editions.
By carrying out this initiative, which is pioneering in Spain, the company intends to boost best practices in the area of the environment, optimise management and promote the search for solutions to problems linked to the natural surroundings.
This forum organised by IBERDROLA includes the participation of managers from the following divisions: networks, generation, environment, renewables, corporate reputation and engineering.
As regards the external experts, the Environmental Forum is attended by representatives from the company's various stakeholders, such as non-governmental organisations, academic institutions, research centres or investment analysts.
