Sustainability: ACCIONA's axis of action

Sustainability permeates each of the ideas, decisions, processes and projects that make ACCIONA a leading global company in promoting sustainable development and combating the climate emergency.

We support a sustainable business model that seeks economic growth, social progress and environmental balance with the goal of improving the lives of present and future generations.

 

To achieve this, we design solutions that address the major global challenges facing humanity: decarbonisation of the energy system, the climate emergency, water and sanitation shortages, the need for resilient infrastructures, and innovation and the development of more sustainable cities.

    emissions avoided through renewables-based generation

    Thanks to our renewable energy projects around the world we manage to avoid the emission of millions of tons of CO₂

    How do we calculate using the emissions counter? The total CO₂ emissions avoided for a period is obtained by adding the emissions avoided in each of the countries in which ACCIONA generates renewable electricity during the period, taking into account its emission factor.

    WE FACILITATE UNIVERSAL ACCESS TO BASIC SERVICES

    Our goal of achieving universal access to basic services prompted us, a decade ago, to create the acciona.org Foundation. A platform from which we reach out to isolated communities around the globe to provide them with basic, sustainable and modern service of electricity, safe water and infrastructure.
