For the eleventh consecutive year, Iberdrola has been included in the prestigious international index FTSE4Good, designed to facilitate investment into the most sustainable companies in the world, taking environmental, sustainability and governance (ESG) criteria as a reference.
Iberdrola has succeeded in meeting the strict requirements imposed by the committee that decides who will be included in the index. This decision is based on an increasingly demanding methodology consisting of 203 indicators, which include environmental conservation, social commitment and corporate governance.
Appearing in the FTSE4Good index reaffirms Iberdrola’s success with work standards, human rights, health and safety, biodiversity, climate change, water and customer responsibilities and social aspects of the supplier chain.
The company also complied with the organisation’s corporate governance, risk management, anti-corruption mechanisms and tax transparency requirements.
Iberdrola already exceeds 32,000MW of installed renewable capacity worldwide and has a portfolio of clean energy projects totalling a further 58,000 MW.
Convinced that the economic and employment recovery can only be green, the group has decided to increase its investments to €10 billion ($11.8 billion) in 2020, of which the majority will go on renewable energies and grids.
Iberdrola is the only power company in Europe to have been included in all 20 editions of the Dow Jones Sustainability Index (DJSI), a clear sign of its strong commitment to sustainability and recognition of its strategy, which has responded successfully to the main economic, environmental and social challenges relating to the international energy policy.
Added to this is the group’s presence in the main international sustainability index’s, which include MSCI, Sustainalytics, ISS-oekom, Bloomberg GEI, Euronext Vieto Eiris índices, Global100, EcoVadis, etc.
