In the first year of this partnership, the two entities helped more than 800 families at risk of vulnerability by offering advice on the responsible use of energy and an energy efficiency kit for adapting supply consumption in their homes, among other things.

By renewing the agreement, the GAS NATURAL FENOSA Foundation and the Red Cross are strengthening their strategic partnership and expanding their cooperation to include raising awareness in children and young people and offering energy workshops at schools and play centres.

Under the new agreement, the Red Cross will develop a mobile app to improve the assessment of and service to families taking part in the energy vulnerability project.

Earlier today, the Deputy Chairman of the GAS NATURAL FENOSA Foundation and Managing Director for Communication and Institutional Relations of the power company, Jordi Garcia Tabernero, the President of the Spanish Red Cross, Javier Senent, and the General Manager of the Foundation, Martí Solà, renewed a partnership agreement for helping groups at risk of energy vulnerability in Spain.

“In this first year of our agreement, the Foundation and Spanish Red Cross helped over 800 vulnerable families with an investment of €200,000,” said the President of the Spanish Red Cross, Javier Senent.

The Deputy Chairman of the GAS NATURAL FENOSA Foundation, Jordi Garcia Tabernero, said that “efforts to ease energy vulnerability require collaboration from the public authorities, society and power companies. Our company continues to work on promoting action and helping social services and organisations improve the management of vulnerable families.” “In the first year of this plan, we have guaranteed supply to over 30,000 families throughout Spain. At present, our company has signed agreements that allow 94% of customers in Spain to be protected,” he recalled.
