Risks and opportunities


Iberdrola receives a trend score of =. If the company were reassessed in the near future, its score would likely remain the same. Due to continuous commitment, investment in renewables and a profitable low-carbon business model, historically Iberdrola reduced its emissions at a rate aligned with its 1.5°C pathway. The acquisition of PNM Resources and construction of new fossil fuel-powered plants increased Iberdrola’s dependence on gas and other fossil fuels. The company should include newly acquired coal, oil and gas capacity in its reporting, assess associated risks and develop a clear schedule to phase out high-emitting plants in the near future.
