Comprehensive water management

We take care of water, a resource that must be preserved

At Endesa, we work to preserve the quality of water and protect this critical strategic resource, which is being affected by climate change.

Aligned with the Sustainable Development Goals

SDG 6: Clean water and sanitation

At Endesa, we identify water as a critical strategic resource that is being affected by climate change. Forecasts from the Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development (OECD)  show that, if new policies are not adopted, by 2050 almost half of the world’s population will live in areas with severe water stress.

To preserve this resource, we are constantly updating our corporate strategy for water and working to make efficient use of water resources in line with our environmental policy, both in our hydroelectric plants, which use water to produce renewable energy, and in those which use other technologies (thermal and nuclear). We also focus on continuously improving waste water control and preserving the ecological status of reservoirs and associated regulated river sections. Through cooperation with basin organisations, more water is available for other purposes such as irrigation, water supply or conservation of ecosystems.

At Endesa we are aware of the impact that our activities can have on the water environment. So we strive to preserve water quality and continuously improve our interaction with this resource. Through our environmental management system we carry out an impact identification process to reduce the effects as much as possible, following a policy of low water consumption and preservation of its quality.

We have participated in the CDP Water Disclosure project for the eleventh year running. This initiative requires companies to report and reduce their environmental impact in relation to water resource management. This is done in accordance with the requirements of institutional investors and companies with a high purchasing power. In 2020, we reached the "Leadership" level with an A rating, the maximum score in water resource management. This placed us above average for the Europe region, which is a B rating, and above average for the generation sector through renewable energy, also with a B rating.
