The Company was rated 'A' in the CDP Global Climate Change Report 2016 and CDP Climate Change Report 2016 Iberia Edition, and has been included in the CDP's A List.
For the sixth year in a row, ACCIONA obtained the highest rating in its performance against climate change, entering The Climate A list 2016, in which just 193 companies out of more than 1.000 analysed globally are recognised for their efforts to reduce emissions and mitigate climate change.
During the ceremony to present the CDP Climate Change Report 2016 - Iberia Edition, ACCIONA's performance was recognised with the A-List award, received by Juan Ramón Silva, General Manager - Sustainability in ACCIONA.
With this award, CDP again acknowledges our company's action against climate change, as evidenced by the fact that 79% of ACCIONA's EBITDA and 49% of its global revenues come from activities that fit the definition of the Green Economy within the UN Environment Programme (UNEP). In line with this low-carbon business model, in 2015 ACCIONA concluded its Sustainability Master Plan 2010-2015 with a reduction of more than 40% in its CO2 emissions.
This recognition of ACCIONA comes just a few days before the entry into force of the Paris Agreement and the inauguration of COP22 in Marrakech, which will continue what was started in COP 21 and should define actions to begin implementing the priorities set out in the Agreement.
CDP is an international non-profit organisation which works with 827 institutional investors, with a total portfolio worth 100 trillion dollars, with the aim of motivating companies to report their efforts to mitigate climate change.
