ACCIONA Chairman & CEO elected to the 14-member Committee, which oversees the strategy and vision of this prestigious business organization.

ACCIONA Chairman & CEO José Manuel Entrecanales has become the first Spanish business leader to join the WBCSD. The Council brings together 200 or so companies from around the world with the shared aim and mission of coming up with solutions for sustainable development.

ACCIONA’s Chairman & CEO was elected to the 14-member Executive Committee during the WBCSD Council Meeting 2009 held in Washington DC October 12-16.

Mr. Entrecanales begins a two-year term on the Executive Committee, which oversees the strategy and vision of the WBCSD. Other newcomers to the Council are the Chairman of Shell and Nokia, Jorma Ollila, the Chairman of Toyota Motor Corporation, Fukio Cho, and the Chairman & CEO of American Electric Power, Michael Morris.

At its annual meeting, the WBSCD will discuss and analyze the scenarios and changes on the world economic stage having an effect on sustainable development. Members will advance towards a low-carbon economy among other key priorities for global businesses and will also further define the Council’s strategic lines of action for between now and 2050.

ACCIONA has been a member of the World Business Council for Sustainable Development since 2005; this demonstrates the company’s commitment to the design and implementation of programs with other companies and public bodies in the quest for multilateral solutions aimed at driving sustainable development.

As part of this effort, in June ACCIONA became a member of The Corporate Leaders Group (CLG), an association of thirty UK and European companies whose goal is to voice proposals from the business community in the fight against climate change. The CLG was created under the auspices of HRH Charles, Prince of Wales, as part of the University of Cambridge’s Programme for Industry.

Last month, José Manuel Entrecanales presented UN Secretary-General, Ban Ki-moon, with the "Copenhagen Communiqué2, a CLG document on climate change that puts forward specific measures for discussion by political leaders in next December’s COP 15 summit in the Danish capital.
