Commitment to society

Red Eléctrica focuses its socio-environmental commitment on the creation of shared value with society, promoting actions and investments aligned with its business objectives. At the same time, this commitment generates value for the Company while having a positive impact on the territory and its inhabitants. In turn, this represents a contribution of the Company to the achievement of various challenges such as those related to the United Nations’ Sustainable Development Goals or those addressed in the European 2030 Energy Strategy.

Corporate volunteering

Since 2005, the promotion of corporate volunteering actions has been one of the Company’s cornerstones, the result of the firm commitment to improving society that has allowed us to channel the spirit of solidarity and address the social concerns of our employees.

In 2017, we designed a new more ambitious corporate volunteering model that seeks to respond to the socio-environmental needs and general interests of the territories in which are facilities are located, showcasing corporate values through the voluntary participation of employees. Based on this, corporate volunteering programmes must be aligned with the 2030 Sustainability Commitment taken on by the Company and contribute to achieving the Sustainable Development Goals, meeting the needs of society.
