WE GUARANTEE ACCESS TO WATER AND ITS SUSTAINABLE MANAGEMENT
ACCIONA is putting its innovative and technical potential into action to create solutions to water scarcity, sanitation problems, access to this vital resource and increased demand. Water treatment for a sustainable future.
The company leads the water treatment sector through its design, construction and operation of drinking water treatment plants, waste water treatment plants, reverse osmosis desalination plants and tertiary treatments for water reuse, and has reinforced its focus on services for cities.
Our water solutions:
Water scarcity affects nearly half of the world's population and threatens to spread, driven by global warming. 2.000 million people do not have access to drinking water and 3,6 billion do not have access to basic sanitation. To help solve this problem, ACCIONA explores innovative solutions and applies the latest technologies in water treatment in parallel with the drive to digitize the sector, which it considers essential to bring about more efficient and sustainable water treatment processes.

WE CONTRIBUTE TO SUSTAINABLE DEVELOPMENT
CLEAN WATER AND SANITATION
Ensure access to water and sanitation for all
Over 2,000 million people in the world live without access to a basic drinking water service, and 3,6 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.
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.
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 35 % 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.
