Eolia is one of Spain’s leading renewable energy producers in Spain. The company specializes exclusively in renewable technologies, mainly in wind farms and solar.
These activities are clearly positive to the environment and provide value and contribute to local development in those geographical areas where it operates.
The wind and solar farms operated by Eolia annually produce enough equivalent energy to cover the energy requirements of approximately 500,000 households, preventing the emission of 725,000 tonnes of CO2 annually.
Eolia has designed and implement a comprehensive framework in ESG aspects (Environmental, Social and Governance), which has been approved by the Board of Directors.
This framework establishes a specific ESG policy which defines the general commitments of Eolia in this area, as well as the policies and procedures developments necessary for its implementation and those responsible for its application.

The UN Global Compact is a call for companies and organisations to align their strategies and operations with universal Ten Principles of Global Compact on human rights, labour standards, the environment and combating corruption.
