Impacts identified in terms of sustainability

Among the initiatives that Red Eléctrica has undertaken within the framework for responsible supply chain management, noteworthy is the identification, in greater detail, of the sustainability impacts of our supplies (mainly services) and, therefore, of the requirements associated to such impacts resulting thereof.

As a result of this initiative, 17 types of impact on sustainability have been identified: 7 in the field of ethics and working conditions, 4 in the field of occupational health and safety and 6 regarding the natural environment.

After assessing the probability of occurrence and the magnitude of each of the impacts, an impact matrix associated with our supplies is obtained. This matrix, which will be updated periodically, helps us continue identifying initiatives that mitigate said impacts and, as a consequence, establish more demanding requirements for our suppliers.
