Participation in organisations and associations

Redeia is part of and actively participates in different organisations and associations (both national and international). The aim is to promote the fundamental aspects of its activities and the electrical sector in general. This includes presenting its position in the development of regulations and operational criteria for electrical grids and systems, particularly within the European Union.

The goal is to provide comprehensive and transparent information to policy makers and legislators so that they are well-informed when making decisions on energy and environmental matters.


Transparency in Institutional Relations

Our presence in institutions is based on the principles of the company's 2030 Sustainability Commitment, particularly emphasising transparency..

Additionally, Red Eléctrica has been registered since 2011 on the voluntary platform ‘EU Transparency Register,’ managed by the European Parliament and the European Commission. This ensures that the company acts transparently by informing stakeholders about its actions that contribute to EU decision-making.

In 2022, the company collaborated with 74 organisations. The following table indicates Red Eléctrica's annual contribution (€) to representational activities in organisations and associations over the last five years.

Membership management in organisations and associations

Redeia has publicly expressed its commitment to addressing climate change since 2011. This pledge materialised through a specific Climate Change Commitment and a Climate Change Action Plan. These were approved by the Board of Directors and communicated to the management team, all employees, and stakeholders. The purpose of both documents is to raise the company's climate ambition and align it with the global goal of limiting the average temperature increase to 1.5 °C. Therefore, in any strategic decision the company makes, the Sustainability Steering Committee must ensure the integration of climate change criteria and seek alignment with the goals of the Paris Agreement. Moreover, compliance with internal rules and regulations is reviewed through several audit processes (internal and third-party processes) to certify compliance. These processes also include a review of the conformity of the company's activities with the Climate Change Commitment.

The management team is responsible for ensuring that the proposed actions and activities in their units comply with the company's policies and standards. The Climate Change Commitment and Sustainability Commitment are part of these policies. Accordingly, all direct and indirect activities of the company must be consistent with them. These activities include supporting the development of initiatives and standards that facilitate the achievement of the Paris Agreement, basically, by promoting the integration of renewable energies into the electrical system, energy efficiency, and support for decarbonising the economy..

This commitment not only applies to internal activities but is also conveyed by Redeia to national and international organisations and associations of which it is a member. This is done through a management system that seeks to define the criteria and measures necessary to provide the company with an appropriate method for selecting and monitoring involvement in organisations and associations. Before formalising the relationship, the Chairperson’s Advisory Committee discusses and approves or rejects the suitability of membership, considering aspects such as the commitment of these organisations to the integration of renewable energies and the decarbonisation of the economy, their climate, social, and sustainability positioning, and their transparency, among others. This is based on ad-hoc requested information and existing documentation, such as statutes or the Transparency Register, identifying that the association commits to supporting and defending EU initiatives aimed at mitigating climate change. Once approved, the agreement is signed.

It is worth noting the role of Redeia in key organisations to achieve the EU Energy and Climate Objectives, such as ENTSO-E, where Redeia actively participates as a member of the Board of Directors, or RGI, where Redeia co-chairs the Board of Directors. Based on the above, Redeia does not belong to any organisation that is not in line with the company's sustainability goals. Moreover, in organisations where a change in trend is perceived, Redeia will consider its exit.

For ENTSO-E and MedTSO, pre-meetings are held before each Board of Directors and Assembly, attended by representatives from corporate areas and TSOs.

In 2023, Redeia continues working to enhance existing monitoring mechanisms in regular coordination meetings with international associations, as well as with the Regulation Committee and the Chairperson’s Advisory Committee. This includes the formalisation of a cross-functional committee to monitor participation in these entities. The goal is to provide greater interaction across all areas of the company to define Redeia's activities when participating in any association.
