Elecnor leads in climate action

Elecnor steps up its commitment to combat climate change as it obtains an "A–" score in the CDP global sustainability ranking.

Madrid, 20 january 2021

For the third consecutive year, the Spanish infrastructure, energy, services and telecommunications group Elecnor has participated in the initiative led by the CDP (Carbon Disclosure Project) by presenting its voluntary report on climate change, thereby reinforcing its commitment to sustainability.

CDP is an international not-for-profit charity that runs a global disclosure system for companies to manage their environmental impacts and which provides an evaluation tool for institutional investors and stakeholders.

In its 2020 report, Elecnor obtained an "A-" score, which is one of CDP's highest ratings, placing the company in the "Leadership" band in terms of sustainability, adaptation and climate change mitigation. Obtaining this rating represents a major step forward in the organisation's performance — last year it scored as "B", the highest level in the "Management" scoring band in terms of climate change.

Featuring in this prestigious international ranking recognised by clients, investors and shareholders is part of Elecnor's Climate Change Strategy, which includes commitments to reduce greenhouse gas emissions and develop a climate change adaptation programme.

The Elecnor Group is also preparing to take another step forward in its commitment to decarbonisation, this time through the Science-Based Targets (SBT) initiative, which identifies and promotes innovative approaches to establishing corporate, science-based emissions reduction targets.
