Road to Paris

One of the most important challenges facing countries is that an accord will go a long way to deciding what our future economic system will look like.  Is it possible we won’t reach an agreement at COP21? “No, for one reason: the world cannot even imagine such an outcome,” said Christiana Figueres, secretary of the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCC).

As such, ACCIONA is in favor of a strong and inspiring message on climate change and we agree that now is not the time for detailed scientific debate, but the moment to focus on the solutions by which we can reduce greenhouse gases and move on to a new era of economic growth and development that are respectful to the environment.

With December’s Climate Summit on the horizon, the Company continues to work in different organizations and consolidate its leadership position in the area of sustainability. For ACCIONA, sustainable development means tackling the following issues:

  • Renewable Energy: the Company supports the SE4ALL proposal to double the contribution of renewable energies to the world energy mix by 2030.
  • Carbon Pricing: putting a price on carbon emissions is the most efficient and universal mechanism to reduce emissions.
  • Technology and Innovation: technological change requires an international effort to eliminate current market, social, technological and financial barriers.
  • Finance: we need stable, predictable regulations, without retroactive changes, to unblock investment for projects and technologies that will drive a low-carbon economy.
