Statkraft, Europe’s leading renewable producer and leader in the PPA market, has published Boreal, its first Sustainability Report in Spain, following the criteria of the Global Reporting Initiative (GRI). Corresponding to the 2023 financial year, this report aims to establish a common reporting framework to respond to the Corporate Sustainability Reporting Directive (CSRD), in line with its commitment to promote transparency of its sustainability performance and its management of the organization.

The company defines its sustainability management model based on the guidelines defined by the Statkraft group: climate change, biodiversity, human rights, circular economy, diversity and equality, local communities and health and safety, and double materiality, which allows them to identify relevant issues that have a positive or negative impact on the organization and its stakeholders.

Thanks to this model, the company, present in Spain since 2018 and which has established our country as one of its strategic markets, prepares its ESG strategy (Environmental, Social y Governance) to respond to the different interest groups and establish the lines of action that define the company’s own strategy.

At the end of the 2023 financial year, Statkraft in Spain operated a renewable capacity of 755 MW in the country and had a portfolio of 1.6 GW of solar and wind projects at different stages of development. This scope is now being increased with the recent acquisition of Enerfín, closed on May 23.

Statkraft’s Head of Sustainability in Spain, Erica Morales, stressed that “the publication of the Boreal Report represents a step forward in our organisational model, which places sustainability, as an umbrella that integrates environmental, social and good governance aspects, as basic pillars of our strategy and growth.”

«The publication of this report is an exercise that we have undertaken voluntarily because we seek to foster a culture of trust and collaboration among our stakeholders.“It also represents a step forward in our organisational model, which places sustainability at the heart of all our actions,” added Morales.
