Within the context of IBERDROLA's ongoing exercise in transparency and communication with shareholders and the markets, the Company has since 2013 published an Annual Activities Report of the Consultative Committees of the Board of Directors, which integrates information regarding the Audit and Risk Supervision Committee, the Appointments Committee, the Remuneration Committee and the Corporate Social Responsibility Committee. Previously, the activities of the Audit and Risk Supervision Committee were disseminated through a specific annual report, the publication of which began in 1999.
