Red Eléctrica carries out all its activities taking into account environmental protection, in accordance with the principles established in its environmental policy, including the commitment to prevent pollution and the principle of precaution.
The main environmental impacts of Red Eléctrica are those that arise from the presence of the facilities in the territory, which is why the Company works intensively to make them compatible with the environment, considering their entire life cycle and paying special attention to the conservation of biodiversity.
In addition, Red Eléctrica is committed to a sustainable energy model, thus acquiring a specific commitment to climate change and energy efficiency.
Red Eléctrica's commitment not only covers its own activities, but also extends to those of its supply chain.
In order to carry out a continuous improvement of environmental performance, Red Eléctrica has implemented an environmental management system certified according to ISO 14001 and registered, since October 2001, in the Community Eco-Management and Audit System (EMAS).
One of the fundamental elements of the management system is the annual environmental programme, the scope of which was extended in 2017 to include all the activities with an environmental component, in a global and cross-cutting way to the entire company, which is now called the annual environmental plan.
