Diversity, engagement and responsible employment

ACCIONA has stepped up its strategy of integrating differentlyabled people into the Company. This is now one of its most important objectives at national and international level.

ACCIONA has stepped up its strategy of integrating differentlyabled people into the Company. This is now one of its most important objectives at national and international level.

Diversity and, especially, disability now occupy an important place in ACCIONA's Human Resources strategy. Based on inclusion, and awarenessraising among people, the Company is demonstrating to society its commitment in this area through the direct integration of differently-abled people and those at risk of social exclusion in the workplace. Indirectly, it is doing so by purchasing goods and services from special employment centers. ACCIONA also works to improve accessibility to goods and services, promoting actions to spread the word and raise awareness among our employees and suppliers, setting up, sponsoring, and participating in, projects that contribute to the better integration in the workplace of people with social disadvantages.

Thanks to the "Inserta" agreement, signed in 2007 with the ONCE Foundation and renewed recently, ACCIONA is to bring over 350 disabled people into its workforce over the next four years.

As Juan Ignacio Entrecanales, ACCIONA Vice-Chairman, on renewing the agreement, pointed out: "In five years, we have, with the Foundation, created more than 190 new work posts and incorporated, into our strategic objectives included in the Sustainability Master Plan, the commitment to achieve 3% of direct employment. In June 2012, we reached the figure of 530 equivalent jobs, which takes us up to 2.58%."

Equal opportunities

This is the context in which ACCIONA has also signed important accords and operating protocols with: the Health Ministry on gender violence and equality; the "Universia" Foundation for the promotion of workplace inclusion with regard to people of different abilities having university qualifications; the Red Cross for the inclusion of women victims of gender violence, and; the Higher Sports Council and Paralympics Committee for the incorporation of elite disabled sportspeople into the world of work.

At the international level, ACCIONA is also seeking to promote equal opportunities and workplace integration, such as in Brazil, where ACCIONA Infrastructure recently contracted 11 people and signed collaboration agreements with local associations in Sao Paulo (Brazil).

In ACCIONA, the commitments acquired in managing diversity go further than cultural, gender and generational aspects; and often beyond legal requirements. Our commitment is to the equality of opportunities.
