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 contract also covers the operation and maintenance of the WWTP at Dudea, a small facility that provides service to the neighbourhood of the same name. Its geographical location makes it impossible to send its wastewater to the Astepe WWTP.
It is the second time in a row that ACCIONA has renewed the contract for the Amorebieta facility.
In addition to 9 kilometres of wastewater and rainwater piping, the primary network has four main pumping stations –Arriagane, Urritxe, Zubieta and Euba– that channel the wastewater toward a general pumping station in the Astepe industrial park, from where it is sent to the wastewater treatment plant.
