ACCIONA in Norway
Driving change in society through sustainable railway and tunnel solutions.
ACCIONA, AN ALLY AGAINST CLIMATE CHANGE
Investment in infrastructure adapted to the main global challenges, such as global warming, is necessary to achievethe Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). In the context of climate emergency, the growing populationand urban concentration make transport infrastructure the pillar on which the sustainable development of society should be based.
At ACCIONA we respond to the adaptation and mitigation needs of the climate crisis. Through renewable energy, sustainable infrastructures and water management solutions we work to achieve sustainable regeneration wherever we operate and generate a positive impact on ecosystems and people in the communities.
ACCIONA is the first company to address the operation of infrastructure to contribute to the achievement of the 2030 Agenda.
ACCIONA in Norway
ACCIONA has designed and built more than 600 km of urban, road and rail tunnels and its innovative efforts have made it a leader worldwide, not only in the construction of these underground mega-infrastructures but also in the machinery used to build them: the tunnel boring machines.
Supported by its leadership in tunnel boring machines, its extensive research in geotechnics and the philosophy of sustainability that it brings to each project, ACCIONA is the first foreign company to win a repeat contract with the Norwegian Railway Administration BaneNOR since the intercity programme began.

WE CONTRIBUTE TO SUSTAINABLE DEVELOPMENT
CLEAN WATER AND SANITATION
Ensure access to water and sanitation for all
Over 844 million people in the world live without access to a basic drinking water service, and 2.3 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.
AFFORDABLE AND CLEAN ENERGY
Ensure access to affordable, reliable, sustainable and modern energy
One in eight people still lack access to electricity. To ensure access to affordable, reliable, sustainable and modern energy for all, the use of renewable energy has to increase from the current 25% to 38% by 2025.
ACCIONA is leading the corporate fight to mitigate the effects of the climate emergency and accelerate change towards a decarbonised energy model. We are the largest 100 % clean energy company in the world.
INDUSTRY, INNOVATION AND INFRASTRUCTURE
Build resilient infrastructure, promote sustainable industrialization and foster innovation
Economic growth, social advancement and action against the climate emergency depend largely on investment in infrastructure, sustainable industrial development and technological progress. Today, about 1 billion people live more than 2 km from a roadway, 940 million live without electricity, and 663 million lack improved drinking water sources.
ACCIONA participates in the entire infrastructure construction value chain, from the identification of opportunity, design and execution, to the operation and maintenance of the constructed works, using the most advanced and innovative techniques.
Performance quality and safety are two of the criteria that maximize the company's value proposal in the development of large infrastructure projects and that differentiate it from other competitors in the construction field.
SUSTAINABLE CITIES AND COMMUNITIES
Make cities and human settlements inclusive, safe, resilient and sustainable
Today, cities represent 3 % of the planet's surface and concentrate more than 50 % of the population. A figure that will rise to 70 % by 2050. In addition, cities generate more than 80 % of the world's gross domestic product (GDP).
In addition to facilitating access to essential services for life - such as energy and water - ACCIONA contributes to making cities places of productive well-being in which to live, favouring people's socio-economic development.
Take urgent action to combat climate change and its impacts
The generation and use of energy accounts for 74 % 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 machine that even Jules Verne was unable to imagine
The technological evolution of tunneling machines, which accelerated at the end of the 19th Century and finally took off in the first half of the 20th, contributed greatly to the expansion of land transport worldwide. The excavation of tunnels to break through mountain ranges or circumvent difficult passes facilitated the ferrying by rail and road of passengers and freight, with their subsequent social and economic benefits...
