We believe it is essential to have a constructive dialogue with the stakeholders interested in our actions in the ESG field such as investors, ESG rating agencies, assessment and certification bodies, customers and other stakeholders.
Therefore, on the one hand, we are committed to engaging with the main and most accredited ESG Rating agencies in order to offer our stakeholders a third-party and independent evaluation of our commitment, and on the other hand to constantly adapt the organizational structures and methodologies to the best practices in the sector, obtaining the main international and sector certifications.
