SPECIFIC ENVIRONMENTAL POLICIES

DECLARATION OF INTENT

Respect for the environment is a fundamental principle guiding everything ACCIONA does, based on the company’s mission, vision and values. This commitment is evidenced by the approval of the company’s Environmental Policy, Biodiversity Policy, Climate Change Policy and its Water Policy. All these are part of ACCIONA’s Policies Book, reflecting the commitments and principles applicable to the Company in economic, social and environmental terms.

Environmental Policy

Preserving and respecting the environment is one of the cornerstones underpinning ACCIONA’s work and is evident from the company’s adherence to best environmental practices throughout all its activities, as it prevents or minimizes any adverse environmental impacts while helping to conserve natural resources.

ACCIONA’s environmental strategy is structured around its commitment to combating climate change, promoting energy savings, optimizing the use and management of water, using resources responsibly, managing waste effectively, preventing pollution and protecting the environment and biodiversity.

Biodiversity Policy

Conservation of Biodiversity and the responsible use of our natural heritage are, for ACCIONA, as well as an ethical commitment, a necessary condition for global Sustainability.  

ACCIONA, aware of the fact that Biodiversity is in itself a key natural asset of high value, promotes its improvement and conservation as a necessary measure for economic development and social progress.

Climate Change Policy

ACCIONA considers it to be a top priority to lead the transition toward low-carbon business models that reduce or mitigate the adverse effects of Climate Change. It encourages the adoption of ambitious global objectives to reduce emissions and the implementation of projects, products and services that contribute to decreasing greenhouse gasses (GHG), facilitating access to renewable energy, to water and environmentally sustainable infrastructures and promoting energy savings.

Water Policy

The main objective of ACCIONA's water policy is to contribute to the basic human right of access to drinking water and sanitation, as recognized by the United Nations General Assembly in 2010. ACCIONA recognizes that water is a limited and irreplaceable natural resource and, accordingly, its water management strategy takes account of water availability, quality and ecosystem balance where it operates. In its role as end-to-end manager of the water cycle and also as a consumer, ACCIONA promotes the following principles among all of its stakeholders.
