SUSTAINABLE CITIES AND COMMUNITIES
Make cities 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.
ACCIONA provides maintenance and conservation services for green areas and urban woodland in Segovia. The contract includes 55 hectares of green areas (both landscaped areas located in various neighbourhoods of the city and parks in the peri-urban area) and more than 3,200 trees of various species.
The service incorporates sustainable gardening criteria, minimizing the application of chemical products, eliminating the use of herbicides and strengthening the city's tree structure with minimally invasive environmental engineering techniques, which allow for specific interventions to encourage the natural development of trees.
