SUSTAINABLE CITIES, SUSTAINABLE PLANET
Half of the human population lives in cities, the main spaces of social and economic progress in the world. However, overpopulation and the climate emergency are pushing humans to rethink these spaces. The time has come to transform our cities into sustainable, smart and inclusive spaces, thus shaping a better planet.
WE ARE TRANSFORMING CITIES INTO HABITABLE SPACES OF GUARANTEED WELL-BEING
Cities are home to the greatest changes of our time; they are the main hubs of economic and social activity, amassing a greater need for resources.
The pressing need to equip cities with the necessary means to tackle the planet's major challenges, such as climate change and urban concentration, is what compels ACCIONA to design essential urban services beyond energy and water.
Our Cities solutions:
ACCIONA is responding to this need by developing sustainable and transformative solutions. Interconnected solutions that transform cities into truly productive and habitable well-being spaces, enhanced in the face of the climate emergency.

WE CONTRIBUTE TO SUSTAINABLE DEVELOPMENT
Decent work and economic growth
Promote inclusive and sustainable economic growth, employment and decent work for all
The continuing lack of decent work opportunities, insufficient investment and low consumption lead to an erosion of the basic social contract underlying democratic societies: the right of all to share in progress. The creation of quality jobs remains a major challenge for almost all economies.
To achieve sustainable economic development, societies must create the conditions for people to have access to quality jobs, stimulating the economy without damaging the environment. There must also be employment opportunities for the entire working-age population, with decent working conditions.
INDUSTRY, INNOVATION AND INFRASTRUCTURE
Build resilient infrastructure, promote sustainable industrialization and foster innovation
Economic growth, social advancement and action against the climate emergency depend largely on investment in infrastructure, sustainable industrial development and technological progress. Today, about 1 billion people live more than 2 km from a roadway, 940 million live without electricity, and 663 million lack improved drinking water sources.
ACCIONA participates in the entire infrastructure construction value chain, from the identification of opportunity, design and execution, to the operation and maintenance of the constructed works, using the most advanced and innovative techniques.
Performance quality and safety are two of the criteria that maximize the company's value proposal in the development of large infrastructure projects and that differentiate it from other competitors in the construction field.
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.
Responsible production and consumption
Ensure sustainable consumption and production patterns
Sustainable consumption and production is about promoting the efficient use of resources and energy, building environmentally friendly infrastructure, improving access to basic services and creating green, fairly paid jobs with good working conditions.
All of this translates into a better quality of life for all and, moreover, helps to achieve general development plans that reduce economic, environmental and social costs, increase competitiveness and reduce poverty.
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.
