Contributions to foundations and non-profit organisations
ACCIONA has a Corporate Donations and Sponsorship Standard. The aim of this standard is to establish a framework of action that allows the group to ensure that donations and sponsorship to charity or non-profit organisations are not a front for illegal payments to civil servants or other people, which would be an infringement of the company’s Anti-corruption Regulations. Any contribution of this type made by ACCIONA should not give rise to any doubt whatsoever as to its appropriateness and, of course, it should not involve the infringement of any applicable law. These rules must be complied with by all the companies and employees of the group, and also by any third parties acting on their behalf. Similarly, ACCIONA makes no donations to any political party or candidate nor any foundation that could be considered as political contributions in the terms established in the Code of Conduct.
Contributions to foundations and non-profit organisations are made with suitable analysis of the receiving institutions, and also their reputation and financial transparency.
In 2022, ACCIONA contributed €2,285,571 to associations or organisations promoting sustainability and trade associations, amongst others.
