Sustainable Development Goals

Contribution to the 2030 agenda

Sustainable Development Goals

Endesa is committed to the 2030 agenda through our specific contribution to four of the 17 Sustainable Development Goals of the United Nations.

We have collaborated in preparing the United Nations Sustainable Development Agenda, and we are firmly committed to it. We recognise the historic opportunity of the Sustainable Development Goals and the involvement of the private sector to overcome the main challenges facing society, from fighting climate change to eradicating poverty to advancing economic and social progress.

These five are the most priority SDG for us and, therefore, are those that we emphasize most, but we also act decisively on some of the other 17 Goals, for which we have set objectives, reported since the emergence of the SDGs. To this end, the 2019-2021 Endesa Sustainability Plan sets out the roadmap for the next three years in order to contribute to the 2030 Agenda, aligning our sustainability strategy with this universal framework.

The “Our Performance” chapter of the 2018 Sustainability Report shows the detail of our contribution over 2018 to each of the sustainable development objectives that we are acting on through our business.
