Total number of IUCN Red List species and national Conservation list species with habitats in areas affected by operations, by level of extinction risk

We are working with the Proteus consortium, where the UNEP WCMC provides extraction companies with information concerning distribution of species on the IUCN Red List of Threatened Species and protected areas. At Repsol we use this information as another decision-making criterion.

We also draw up environmental impact surveys on all new projects, gathering detailed information on species located in the territory concerned. In 2016 we identified indicator species in the planet's main habitats alongside the Smithsonian Institute, helping to make us more effective in managing our impacts.

The table below shows the number of IUCN-classified species in areas affected by our Exploration and Production operations:

Number of species at our operational exploration and production assets[1]
Number of critically endangered species 32
Number of endangered species 100
Number of vulnerable species 294
Number of threatened species 370
