In recent years, the number of financial agents that incorporate ESG (Environmental, Social and Governance) criteria in their decision making is growing exponentially.
In line with this trend, in 2020 we signed the first sustainable financing line with the Official Credit Institute (ICO), for the period 2020-2024. The financing applies to the Gonvarri Holding companies, GRI Renewable Industries and Gonvarri Industries.
For Gonvarri, FY20 has been a period of reflection to define a roadmap towards a climate-neutral future through the “2030/50 Carbon Neutral Plan”.
Hence, it is essential to know our risks facing climate change and what measures will help mitigate such risks.
In 2020, corporate analyzed potential cross-cutting risks that could affect the business with the aim of transferring and specifying such risks, in the next two years, to the different countries and facilities.
Risks are identified by taking as a reference the recommendations and categorizations of the Task Force on Climate related Financial Disclosures (TCFD) standard by the Financial Stability Board (FSB). Such an analysis was carried out in collaboration with the different corporate departments which are part of the carbon neutral project, together with the Internal Audit area.
