Contribution to the 2030 agenda

Sustainable Development Goals

Endesa is committed to the 2030 agenda through our specific contribution to 6 of the 17 United Nations Sustainable Development Goals.

On 25 September 2015, the UN approved the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development so that countries and their societies could make progress towards the construction of a more sustainable world that leaves no one behind.

If this is to be achieved everyone must play their part. Endesa wants to be an active agent in this transformative vision towards sustainability so, since announcing our specific contribution to Agenda 2030 in 2016, we have continued to progress with regard to our commitment to goal 13 of climate action to which we also contribute with specific actions in relation to SDGs 7, 9 and 11: 

SDG 13: Climate Action

SDG 13: Climate Action

Bringing forward of decarbonisation of the energy mix to 2040, setting ambitious targets to reduce specific Scope 1 Greenhouse Gas (CO2eq) emissions compared to  2017 by around 80% by 2030 and 100% by 2040. 

SDG 9: Industry, Innovation and Infrastructure and SDG 11: Sustainable Communities and Cities.

SDG 9: Industry, Innovation and Infrastructure and SDG 11: Sustainable Communities and Cities

Investment of approximately 1.5 billion euros in digitalisation to transform the energy of the future and a plan to roll out 46,000 charging stations in 2024.

SDG 7: Affordable and clean energy

SDG 7: Affordable and clean energy

More than 4 GW of growth in renewable energy in the 2022-2024 period. In addition, we are indirectly contributing to training and education programmes focusing on energy, accessibility and the promotion of energy efficiency, reaching 4.1 million beneficiaries between 2015 and 2030. 

Furthermore, we contribute indirectly to SDG 4 (Quality Education) having established a public commitment to reach 0.8 million beneficiaries between 2015 and 2030 and to SDG 8 (Decent Work and Economic Growth) where we have established a public commitment to reach 1.9 million beneficiaries by 2030 during the same period as part of the social initiatives we carry out.

SDG 12 (Responsible Production and Consumption) is another key concept in the strategy, especially when it is combined with innovation and is introduced into the value chain from the design stage. Under our strategy, we expect 90% of the generation fleet to be circular by 2030 (measured as reduction in materials and fuel consumption over the life cycle vs. 2015 excluding nuclear technology).

Partnerships, which we have fostered traditionally, are becoming more important than ever nowadays. This means we are contributing to the achievement of SDG 17 (Partnerships for the goals). These alliances not only help to rise to the challenge of decarbonisation in the sector, but have also played a key role in coping with the exceptional circumstances experienced as a result of the pandemic, where public-private partnership has become even more crucial.

These are the highest priority SDGs for us and, therefore, the ones on which we focus most. However, we also take decisive action in relation to all SDGs, and have set targets and reported on them since they were introduced. To this end, ENDESA's 2022-2024 Sustainability Plan sets out the roadmap for the coming 3 years for contributing to the 2030 Agenda, thus bringing its sustainability strategy in line with this universal framework.
