Our aim with this event is for investors to learn how to adequately apply sustainability criteria at the operational level.
The sixt edition of Sustainability Day was held in November 2019. Our investors had the chance to learn abou tour solutions against climate change and our commitment to an energy transition towards a low-emissions future based on innovation and technology.
The 5th edition of our Sustainability Day was held in London in November 2018. Investors had the chance to see for themselves the steps the Company is taking to face the challenge posed by the energy transition.
At the event held in November 2017, we looked at the best practices in sustainability that we implement at our Company. Our aim is for investors to learn first hand how these practices are applied at the operational level. Disclosing our Sustainability Plans and actions provides the transparency we consider essential in our corporate policy.
Every year since 2014 we have held Sustainability Day, an event that is designed specifically for investors that take into account ESG (environmental, social, and governance) criteria when making decisions.
In April 2015, we presented the evaluation and audit of our partners and supply chain. Among other matters, aspects such as how we share our ethical and corporate concerns with our suppliers were discussed, in addition to how we conduct audits on our partners and contractors in order to ensure that they fulfill our Company's requirements.
We also talked about our pilot project in Peru: test programs to define our corporate policy and how the biodiversity programs were developed and evaluation of the "Ecosystem Services Review" pilot project, in addition to how Repsol complies with human rights and the road transportation best practices applied in the LPG distribution business.
From a more technical viewpoint, matters such as the decision-making process before and during drilling activities were also addressed, including the process for designing and mitigating the risk of Repsol's wells and a case study that was a major success in the Canary Islands.

What about 2014? What issues were addressed on Sustainability Day? It was a day in which practical cases helped us show how projects are implemented at our Company.
The Bolivia case was explained in detail, a success story about the integration and execution of an efficient project from a technical and financial point of view. The Colombia case was also analyzed regarding how to put in practice the lessons learned with respect to our social license to operate. Given that sustainability and respect for the environment are the star themes of this event, one of the talks focuses on how Repsol has managed to reduce its CO2 emissions.
Following the practical nature of the presentations, deepwater drilling practices were explained, in addition to how they have improved thanks to the Global Drilling Group, which establishes the well construction process and the manual, guidelines, and best practices that must be applied at Repsol. It also helps identify and assign human drilling resources and provides technical support for working in complex wells.
