We foster sustainable development
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.
The Tolchén Transmission Line, in construction since 2018, is located in the communities of Renaico, Negrete and Mulchén, in the Araucanía region.
This social initiative, developed in the Aurora de Enero School, aims to promote knowledge about renewable energies and sustainable development in boys and girls, through different recreational activities.
In this opportunity, 32 children participated, most of them from the same sector of Aurora de Enero, and children from other neighboring localities.
The workshops developed were:
- Theatre: light and shade workshop, puppets, make-up, costumes
- Sustainability workshop: toy workshop with recycling, ecological costumes, painting about caring for the environment, among others.
With this initiative, ACCIONA shows its concern for the youngest of the communities that are in the area of influence of its facilities, trying to improve the quality of life and welfare of all of them.
