Informative sessions on energy
Red Eléctrica contributes to the dissemination of knowledge regarding the functioning of the electricity system by encouraging participation in conferences and training/informative sessions.
On 1 and 2 October 2019, Red Eléctrica organized the seminar “Creating a Sustainable Future Together. The challenge of the SDG” which was held at its head office in Madrid. It was a group of sessions designed to underline its commitment to achieving the United Nations’ Sustainable Development Goals (SDG) and contributing to the discussion with the contribution of top-ranking experts on how the private sector, public administration and general public can comply with the 2030 Agenda. It also commented on the company’s Sustainability commitment with its stakeholders as a way of sharing its perspective and discovering synergies.
The sessions analysed the way that the activities of company employees across sectors contribute to the transition to a sustainable model. The act was also attended by Cristina Gallach, High Commissioner for the 2030 Agenda and Carlos Mataix, the Director of the Centre for Innovation in Technology for Human Development at the Polytechnic University of Madrid.
The sessions also showed how the commitment to the SDG was passed along the supply chain and explained the role of the Red Eléctrica Group in energy transition to analysts, ESG investors and proxy advisors. The most interesting topics were handled with the primary aim of explaining the actions carried out by the company to promote energy transition and the role of the Board of Directors in the drive for sustainability.
