The main goals of this organizational structure include:

  • Ensuring the environmental variable as a strategic Business variable;
  • Ensuring the continuous improvement of our environmental performance and legal compliance;
  • Contributing to the successful implementation of the Strategic Plan.

In order to improve the Group’s environmental performance, in addition to the aforementioned management structure, we have management tools that ensure the monitoring and control of all the environmental aspects of the different facilities and activities within the Group.

All electricity and gas distribution activities, like all electricity generation processes, have a certified Management System, in accordance with the UNE EN-ISO 14001 standard, which is audited on a yearly basis by an external agency, and is therefore independent. Additionally, some thermal plants also have the EMAS (Eco-Management and Audit Scheme) Register.

These certificates (ISO 14001 and EMAS Register) are voluntary, and their purpose is to award companies that have implemented an Environmental Management System and adopted an externally verified commitment to continuous improvement. Furthermore, companies with an EMAS register regularly report on the operation of the system, through an Environmental Statement whose data are also audited in order to verify their reliability.
