Madrid, Spain

Endesa, a subsidiary of Enel, has not lobbied heavily on energy and climate policy. Endesa has not clearly communicated support for emissions reductions in line with IPCC recommendation, or the Paris Agreement. However, it does appear to have supported the EU's 2020 Climate and Energy package, including 20% reduction targets for renewables, GHG emissions and energy efficiency. Furthermore, Endesa CEO José Bogas has stated support for the transitioning the energy mix to 100% renewables by 2050. Despite this, Endesa has had a mixed position on a rule in Spain to introduce charges on distributed (consumed at the point of production) solar-power generation- effectively making such generation un-competitive. Endesa CEO, José Bogas praised the tax once it was introduced, although the company had previously supported measures that would have avoided the charges coming out of the a consumer’s energy bill. Endesa appears to support for EU Emissions Trading System reform, with the exception that the companies’ costs should be compensated from the scheme. The company has stated support for the low-carbon energy transition and initiatives to promote the electrification of transportation.

How to Read our Relationship Score Map

In this section, we depict graphically the relationships the corporation has with trade associations, federations, advocacy groups and other third parties who may be acting on their behalf to influence climate change policy. Each of the columns above represents one relationship the corporation appears to have with such a third party. In these columns, the top, dark section represents the strength of the relationship the corporation has with the influencer. For example if a corporation's senior executive also held a key role in the trade association, we would deem this to be a strong relationship and it would be on the far left of the chart above, with the weaker ones to the right. Click on these grey shaded upper sections for details of these relationships. The middle section contains a link to the organization score details of the influencer concerned, so you can see the details of its climate change policy influence. Click on the middle sections for for details of the trade associations. The lower section contains the organization score of that influencer, the lower the more negatively it is influencing climate policy.
