The company pushed forward the energetic transition, corporate ethical and transparency principles and policies, the care of its people, the protection of biodiversity, the fight against climate change, circular economy, local impact, CSR and the protection of cultural heritage.

In addition to this with the kick-off of operations of the Biomass Plant in Curtis-Teixeiro, and Wind Farms Miñón and Ourol Greenalia will prevent 190.000tCO2 emissions yearly.
