For the third consecutive year, Enagás is among the leading companies in the world to be included in the CDP Climate Change ‘A List’, the highest rating on this annual climate action index.
This places Enagás among the world’s most advanced companies in terms of sustainability and environmental management, for its performance and transparency in the fields of emissions reduction, risk management and opportunities arising from climate change, and promoting a low-carbon economy.
Enagás' continued inclusion in this ranking, in which this year close to 12,000 companies worldwide have taken part by reporting climate information, is further recognition of its commitment to carbon neutrality, the setting of ambitious emission reduction targets, as well as its commitment to the development of hydrogen and other renewable gases.
Since 2014, Enagás has reduced its greenhouse gas emissions by 63%, which represents significant progress towards its goal of becoming a carbon-neutral company by 2040. In addition, it is promoting the decarbonisation of the economy and the industry, with 55 specific renewable gas projects throughout Spain (34 green hydrogen projects and 21 biomethane projects), together with more than 60 Partners.
