Likewise, ACCIONA joins the challenge #RetoDíaSinEmisiones, advising employees to decrease as much as possible their emissions that day, using public transportation, bicycles, electric vehicles or walking, as well as using heating and electricity efficiently.
The purpose of this symbolic action is to educate society in the need to adopt measures against climate change and polluting emissions, as well as saving energy and decreasing light pollution.
ACCIONA has taken climate change mitigation as a strategic objective. To this end, it commits its investment capacity and strives to achieve carbon neutrality in its operations through energy efficiency and by offsetting its emissions through the purchase of CO₂ emission allowances for renewable facilities in developing countries.
The Earth Hour was born in 2007 in Sidney as a symbolic gesture to bring attention over the climate change problem. A simple gesture, that consists of turning off the lights in homes, businesses, buildings and emblematic monuments for an hour.
