Just transition

We want to contribute to a socially fair and equitable energy transition

We put support plans in place to encourage business activity in regions where power plants are located

The energy transition entails a series of transformations that can occasionally have adverse effects in certain communities affected by changes in the economy and employability in their regions. The impact of coal-fired power plant closures is one example of such effects. To address this situation, we employ an approach based on the following premises:

  • We prioritise environmental measures and health and safety procedures in the dismantling processes.
  • We are committed to stakeholders in the area surrounding the power plants.
  • We give sites with a second life, pursuing alternatives for new industrial uses.
  • As far as we can, we mitigate the economic and employment impact in these areas by means of support plans, consistent with the historical link with the territories.
  • We support the creation of employment and contribute to the training of workers in new skills adapted to the requirements of the energy transition.
