Corporate ethics and integrity are a fundamental part of ACCIONA. The Company's Corporate Code of Conduct sets out to lay down the values that guide the behavior of each and every member of ACCIONA's workforce.
This Code was set up in 2007 and modified later in 2011. It aims at providing orientation for relations among employees; dealings between employees and clients, shareholders, suppliers and external collaborators; relations with public and private institutions, and with society at large. At the same time as the Code was approved, the Code of Conduct Commission and the Ethical Channel were set up.
The ACCIONA Policy Book reflects the commitments and the principles of action applicable to the company firms regarding economic, social and environmental issues. The new ACCIONA Policy Book was approved by the Sustainability Committee in the Board of Directors in April 2018.
