Ensure access to water and sanitation for all
Over 2,000 million people in the world live without access to a basic drinking water service, and 3,6 billionhave no access to a basic sanitation service, resulting in avoidable deaths, chronic disease, fewer hours of education and low productivity.
ACCIONA has positioned itself as a key player in the water treatment sector. Its innovative management seeks to resolve the challenges with respect to the shortage of water resources.
Take urgent action to combat climate change and its impacts
The generation and use of energy accounts for 35 % of total greenhouse gas emissions in the world. This activity is the largest contributor to global warming. Investment in renewable energy, energy efficiency and other low-carbon technologies will continue to be essential to meet the emerging needs of humanity and to minimize their negative impact on the environment.
ACCIONA considers the fight against climate change and its effects to be a strategic priority. The company works to mitigate greenhouse gas emissions in order to contribute to the progress of society and respond to the main challenges of sustainable development in the areas of infrastructure, water and energy, leading the transition to a low-carbon economy.
The company built, operates and maintains the Reggio Calabria desalination plant, and is currently working on increasing its capacity to 25,000 m3/d. It also built the Beneventana Servizi and CAP Milano desalination plants (a total of 11,200 m3/d).
Some of ACCIONA's projects within the drinking water treatment segment include upgrading, operating and maintaining the Cagliari drinking water treatment plant in Sardinia, operating and expanding the two Bari drinking water treatment plants in Puglia (188,000 m3 between them), and building and operating the Scicli (Sicily) drinking water treatment plant, with a capacity of 12,000 m3/day.
