Strategic collaboration for the decarbonization between Renault and Iberdrola will launch projects to reduce CO2 emissions with the energy consumption of the French company in its factories in Spain and Portugal. Renault’s current goal around the world is cut CO2 emissions from its activities in half by 2030.
Iberdrola will provide long-term green energy and implement solutions in thermal electrification, energy efficiency, renewable projects, electrification of mobility and the recycling of batteries for a second life.
Jos Vicente de los Mozos, Industrial Director of the Renault Group and President and CEO of Renault Iberia, and Ignacio Galn, Chairman of Iberdrola, signed the agreement between the companies at the Renault Body and Assembly Plant in Valladolid.
