UN Global Compact

ACCIONA participates in the initiative as a Participant member and adhered to it in 2005.

The mission of  Global Compact is to promote business sustainability through the implementation of 10 Universal Principles on Human Rights and Business, Labor Standards, the Environment and the Fight against Corruption, in the strategy of the organizations and to favor, in this way, the achievement of the Sustainable Development Goals (SDG).

The secondment of Global Compact is voluntary and those entities who sign it pledge to uphold and disseminate the Principles, and report on their progress once they apply them in their management. ACCIONA reports on its progress in the Progress Report presented each year by the company's president, José Manuel Entrecanales.

ACCIONA also backs the initiatives and projects promoted by the Global Compact:


Global Compact LEAD

Global Compact LEAD

At the end of 2010, ACCIONA was selected by Global Compact to be part of Global Compact LEAD, a business platform designed to promote sustainability worldwide. Member companies of this initiative have committed to follow the Blueprint for Corporate Sustainability Leadership in their activities. This is a complete roadmap which includes specific measures to be taken by companies to improve their sustainability. In January 2011 this initiative was officially launched by the UN Secretary General, Ban Kimoon at the World Economic Forum in Davos (Switzerland). Since early 2014, ACCIONA has also been a member of the Advisory Group of the Global Compact LEAD.

In September 2015, at the United Nations headquarters, ACCIONA attended the Sustainable Development Summit to formally adopt the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). Unlike the previous Millennium Development Goals, the new goals are more focused on sustainability and give the private sector a more prominent role. The essence of four of the goals adopted –water, renewable energies, resilient infrastructures and climate change– form the foundations for the Company’s business model.
