In this way, we want to drive economic growth, social development, and the generation of a more innovative and sustainable energy future for all. 

Our energy is made of diversity

At Iberdrola International, we have an innovative Equality, Diversity and Inclusion Policy that incorporates international best practices, within the framework of our sustainable development strategy and our social commitment.  

This policy, in line with the provisions of the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) approved by the UN, promotes equal opportunities and guarantees non-discrimination in the management of people, driving important advances with our employees, customers, suppliers and society in general. 

The overall impact of these actions, both at Iberdrola International and at the other Companies, is reflected annually in the Iberdrola Group's Diversity and Inclusion Report Enlace externo, se abre en ventana nueva.. We believe that the periodic evaluation of our efforts and transparency in the results are key tools for achieving our diversity and inclusion goals.

Diversity and Inclusion Strategy

Promoting diversity and inclusion is an essential task for any company that seeks to create sustainable value with its activity. Our Diversity and Inclusion (D&I) Strategy, promoted since 2023 by Iberdrola International's D&I Board, encompasses multiple dimensions of diversity and is based on four pillars that promote initiatives both internally, in our employees, and externally, in the customers, suppliers and communities in which we operate.

  Culture

We promote an inclusive culture through awareness raising, training and positive communication.

  Talent

We manage talent inclusively, promoting equal access to opportunities and development for all.

  Customers

We offer inclusive services and promote energy access for vulnerable customers.

  Social contribution

We influence our environment to improve people's lives and promote change towards a more sustainable future and a fairer society.

Our diversity and inclusion goals

Within Iberdrola International's efforts towards diversity and inclusion, it is essential to establish priorities to ensure that our objectives are addressed in an effective and coordinated manner, leading to positive results. Thus, we establish as a necessary starting point the work of raising awareness and visibility regarding the importance of acting for the inclusion of our diversity in the various places where we operate. 

From there, our medium-term priorities and objectives follow in the areas of: Women + STEM; Generations; Multiculturalism; Disabilities; and Minorities.
