The environmental footprint is a multi-criteria measure of the company’s environmental behaviour at all stages of the life cycle; from the extraction of raw materials to how products are managed at the end of their useful life. In 2019 we saw a reduction in our footprint of 40% compared to 2018, a significant improvement mainly due to decreased production at coal-fired stations.
During 2019, only one environmental incident has been recorded, with an associated fine of 2,200,000 €.
During 2019, there were 53 environmental lawsuits, which can be broken down as follows: 10 issues relating to wind energy, 3 issues relating to generation (nuclear), 4 issues relating to generation (water, gas and coal) and 36 issues relating to distribution. The total monetary value of the provisions for these environmental liabilities accrued at year-end 2019 is 69,357,288 euros.
