At Repsol, we contribute to sustainable development by seeking to satisfy the growing demand for energy, which is essential for the fulfillment of people's fundamental rights, and by creating value both in the short and long term.
We maximize our positive impact and minimize our negative impact on society and the environment throughout our value chain by acting ethically and transparently. In doing so, we seek to comply not only with the regulations in force but also with the main international standards. This is how our six–pillar sustainability model was born.
This model is reflected in our Sustainability Plans through ambitions, medium-term objectives, and annual lines of action for each one of the model pillars. Ultimately, these plans also become our roadmap at the global level as well as for specific countries and industrial complexes, which take into account the specific circumstances and needs of each place where we operate.
