Iberdrola joins ITF Corporate Partnership Board
Global energy group Iberdrola has joined the International Transport Forum’s (ITF) Corporate Partnership Board to work on topics related to sustainability, the decarbonisation of transport, innovation, and workforce diversity.
Iberdrola is a global leader in clean electricity with more than 150 years of history. The company supplies clean energy to more than 100 million people and has 34 000 employees worldwide. For two decades, Iberdrola has been leading the energy transition, as a first mover in the industry to identify the urgent challenges posed by climate change. Developing clean electricity has been integral in Iberdrola´s global growth with a focus on renewables, smart grids, energy storage, innovation and digitalisation.
The ITF is an intergovernmental organisation with 60 member countries that facilitates global dialogue for better transport. It acts as a think tank for member governments and organises an annual summit of transport ministers. The Corporate Partnership Board is the ITF’s platform for engaging with the private sector and enriching global transport policy discussion with a business perspective.
Young Tae Kim, Secretary-General of the ITF, said:
“We are delighted to have Iberdrola on our Corporate Partnership Board and contribute to our work on one of the most important questions facing transport: how to move from almost complete dependency on fossil fuels to a clean and green energy mix that can power the mobility of the future in a sustainable way.”
Ignacio Galán, Chairman and CEO of Iberdrola, said:
“The electrification of the economy is the best pathway to decarbonisation. In the transport sector, the introduction of clean energy will help the fight against climate change and improve the quality of the air we breathe. Our sector will make a vital contribution by supplying power from renewable sources, making the grid network smarter and more robust, and by developing charging networks that facilitate the anticipated ambitious growth of electric mobility.”
