Impacts identified in terms of sustainability

One of the initiatives that Red Eléctrica has undertaken within the framework of responsible supply chain management is the identification of the impacts of our supplies (mainly services) on sustainability and, therefore, the requirements associated with those impacts.

20 types of impacts on sustainability were identified as a result of this initiative: 7 in the area of ethics and working conditions, 4 in the area of occupational safety and health, and 9 related to the environment.

After assessing the probability of occurrence and magnitude for each one, a new impact matrix was generated corresponding to supplies of Equipment and/or Materials and the matrix prepared previously for supplies of Services and Works was revised.

In addition, Red Eléctrica has developed a methodology for identifying and assessing the country risk associated with each one of the impacts on sustainability and its inclusion in the matrices, which will make it possible to make a more complete assessment by taking supplier location into account.

These matrices, which will be updated periodically, will help us continue identifying the initiatives that mitigate these impact and consequently define more stringent requirements for our suppliers.
