CLEAN, NON-POLLUTING ENERGY
Ensure access to affordable, reliable, sustainable and modern energy for all
1 in 8 people still do not have access to electricity. In order to ensure access to affordable, reliable, sustainable and modern energy for all, it is necessary to increase the use of renewable energy from 25 % today to 38 % in 2025.
ACCIONA is positioning itself as a key player in addressing the growth in energy demand while curbing the progress of global warming and promoting the transition to a decarbonized energy model.
Take urgent action to combat climate change and its impacts
The generation and use of energy is responsible 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 new needs of humanity and to minimise their negative impact on the environment.
ACCIONA considers the fight against climate change and its related effects to be a strategic priority. The Company is working 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.
ACCIONA manages the Facility Management contract for General Motors in its industrial complex in San Luis Potosí, and the energy services contract for the four General Motors factories in Mexico (San Luis de Potosí, Silao, Ramos Arizpe and Querétaro).
The Facility Management contract, one of Mexico's largest industrial contracts, began in 2015 and will last a total of five years, and employs over 600 workers. The scope of the services includes the maintenance of installations and equipment, specialised and industrial cleaning, management of the paint booth system, administration of filtration equipment, auxiliary production services, management of mobile equipment, administrative services, gardening, among others.
In addition, the energy services contract began in 2020 and includes the performance of an energy audit for the four plants and the development of engineering projects, with the necessary recommendations to implement solutions to reduce energy consumption and CO2 emissions from both production plants and auxiliary installations.
