RESILIENT INFRASTRUCTURE FOR CONSTRUCTING THE FUTURE

    The challenges unleashed by the consequences of climate change and overpopulation demand innovative, efficient solutions in the infrastructure sector. The Planet needs investment in resilient roads, bridges, rail lines, tunnels, dams and ports. Infrastructure must be adapted to the effects of global warming, to build a Planet for the future.

    HOW DOES ACCIONA INVEST IN THE PLANET?

    Throughout its history, ACCIONA has built thousands of kilometers of roads and designed hundreds of bridges and many other infrastructure projects. We believe in the importance of constructing infrastructure able to resist the change that climate change and population growth is producing in society and nature. This, in turn, will help achieve Sustainable Development Goal 9, “Industry, innovation and infrastructure”.

    This belief led ACCIONA in 2016 to invest 193.9 million euros in innovation, while boosting research in composite materials, sustainable building, biotechnology, new environmental technologies and the construction of maritime works, among others.

    ACCIONA assumes that, on an overpopulated Earth, which will have around 8.3 billion inhabitants in 2030, and battered by the effects of global warming, the smartest decision is to invest in the Planet.
