At an event in Brussels this week, ACCIONA received the "CDP Europe Award" for its inclusion with the highest possible score in the CDP Climate 2017 and CDP Water 2017 indexes, thanks to its work for sustainable water management and against climate change.
ACCIONA is one of just 27 companies to be included in both indices, out of more than 3,000 companies around the world that were assessed this year.
As well, the Company obtained the maximum grade "A" in CDP Supply Chain Climate, where 4,800 global supply companies were assessed, and in CDP Supply Chain Water, for which 1,500 companies were evaluated.
Through the Supply Chain Program, which measures companies' status as sustainable service providers, CDP highlights ACCIONA's excellence vis-à-vis its customers in risk management relating to climate and water, in promoting transparency throughout the value chain, and in proving its commitment when addressing risks, leveraging opportunities and ensuring business continuity.
In addition to CDP recognition this year, the company has positioned itself as a leader in environmental and climate change reporting, for the second year in a row, according to the latest Carbon Clear report: Sustainability Reporting Performance of the FTSE 100, IBEX 35 and CAC 40.
Appearing in these indexes and reports strengthens ACCIONA's position in the eyes of public- and private-sector clients and other stakeholders for whom sustainability is a part of their strategy.
