Improvement in the quality of provision, both in terms of sanitation and security of the supply
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.
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 close collaboration with the Association of Municipalities has meant that it has been possible to attract investments (upgrades to drinking water treatment plants, potable water tanks, conveyance systems, etc.), by other administrations. Also worthy of note is the research work carried out through agreements with the University of Granada and ACCIONA's RDI Department, as well as a social action program focused on raising awareness about the water management cycle at schools and neighbourhood associations.
These years of work have resulted in the extension of the concession up to 2045, which entails the investment of more than 32,000 Euros in renovation projects and improvement of networks in the municipalities, by means of an improvement fee.
