Repsol and Iberia to advance sustainable mobility solutions
The agreement between the multi-energy company and the airline is part of the Sustainable Development Goals (SDG) promoted by the United Nations through its 2030 Agenda.
Repsol CEO, Josu Jon Imaz, and Chairman of Iberia, Javier Sánchez-Prieto, signed an agreement that will develop ambitious joint programs and activities in three areas: the research and production of sustainable aviation fuels, capable of reducing their carbon footprint during their combustion on flights; the development of processes for the production and supply of electricity and renewable hydrogen that will decarbonize Iberia’s fleet of land vehicles; and the energy management of Iberia’s facilities through advanced systems (Energy Management System) and artificial intelligence, as well as self-consumption installations.
For Javier Sánchez-Prieto, Chairman of Iberia, “this agreement with Repsol is a strategic one, so Iberia can progress towards the commitment to sustainability that it has acquired. Our current sustainability strategy is based, above all, on achieving maximum efficiency in our operations, reducing the intensity of our customers’ emissions, and offering them an increasingly sustainable travel experience. The agreement with Repsol reinforces our future commitment to the research and development of sustainable aviation fuels, the ecological transition of our equipment at airports, and a more efficient management of our facilities.”
For his part, the CEO of Repsol, Josu Jon Imaz, said that “the implementation of this collaboration agreement with a strategic partner for the company such as Iberia is another step in the company’s Strategic Plan, which will allow us to move towards the goal of being a net zero emissions company by 2050. Repsol has the capacity to offer a global response to the needs of a sector such as aviation, which requires a multi-energy solution to cover its energy demand, both on the ground and in the air, where electrification presents difficulties.”
The partners have set up a working group, made up of representatives from the two companies, in which all future activities and projects will take place with the aim of achieving more sustainable mobility and more efficient energy management.
