The Rei Jaume I Awards are granted to people who stand out in their field of work and who have developed most of their professional activity in Spain. They are recognized as the most prestigious awards for the activity carried out in Spain and are one of the best paid in the country. The winners in each category are committed to donating part of the prize money to research and entrepreneurship in Spain.

Fundación Iberdrola España has been collaborating for years with this institution as a member of the Jury and promoter of the Environmental Protection Award, one of the six award categories.
