The Naturgy Foundation will make its Energy School and volunteers from the energy company available to Energy Without Borders to collaborate in the "Energy Vulnerability" project of the partner organisation. The president of Energy Without Borders, Pilar Sevillaand the general director of Naturgy Foundation, María Eugenia Coronado, signed a collaboration agreement today to work jointly
The two entities have collaborated for the past three years to develop joint programmes to combat energy vulnerability, a problem that has been worsened this year by the social and economic consequences of the pandemic.
Rehabilitations have been carried out in 350 homes and 4,500 informational workshops have been held, in addition to the advice on energy-related matter provided by volunteers from both organisations.
This year, Naturgy donated over 2 million euros to the Red Cross for the purchase of medical supplies to fight the pandemic.
The chairman of Naturgy, Francisco Reynés, met with 300 of the company's volunteers online to recognise the involvement and dedication of the group of employees across the world during the Covid-19 public health crisis.
In the last year, close to 1,100 company volunteers dedicated 6,600 working hours across seven countries to their tasks with people in a situation of energy vulnerability and conferences on the environmental recovery of natural spaces, among other actions.
Ten volunteers travelled to the natural space last weekend to help out with tasks to restore this habitat for the second time.
The Naturgy Foundation’s Environmental Volunteering Programme has just celebrated its fifth anniversary; five years during which 35 m3 of waste has been cleared and more than 3,600 plant specimens have been planted in various natural spaces in Spain.
