- The group chaired by Ignacio Galán has been recognised by CDP for its leadership in corporate transparency and climate change performance, securing a place on its annual ‘A List’.
Iberdrola remains steadfast in its commitment to decarbonisation. The company has been ranked again with the highest score by the world’s most prestigious climate change index, the CDP. According to data reported by CDP, the company is one of a small number of companies that have achieved an “A” rating, out of more than 21,000 companies analysed.
CDP uses a detailed, independent methodology to assess companies, assigning a score from A to D – based on completeness of disclosure, knowledge and management of environmental risks and demonstration of best practices associated with environmental leadership, such as setting ambitious and meaningful targets.
Fully aligned with the Task Force on Climate-related Financial Disclosure (TCFD) CDP has the world’s largest environmental database, whose scores are used to drive investment and procurement decisions towards a sustainable, resilient and zero-carbon economy.
In 2023, more than 740 financial institutions with over $136 trillion in assets requested companies to disclose data on environmental impacts, risks and opportunities through the CDP platform, achieving a record participation of over 24,000 companies.
In addition to the company’s inclusion in this index, it has also achieved a high score in the main international sustainability indices, including the Dow Jones Sustainability Index, Moody’s ESG, MSCI, FTSE4Good, Sustainalytics, ISS-ESG, Bloomberg GEI, EcoVadis, etc.
Leading the world in sustainability
Iberdrola has incorporated the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), defined by the United Nations for the 2030 horizon, into its business strategy and sustainability policy, and is a benchmark for its direct contribution to the global goals, highlighting its contributions in the field of energy and climate change.
