June 5th, World Environmental Day

ACCIONA has taken on a long-term strategic commitment to protecting the environment.

ACCIONA has taken on a long-term strategic commitment to protecting the environment. Accordingly, the Company is pledged to a raft of initiatives that includes the following:

  1. In 2009, we avoided close to 8 million metric tons of CO2 emissions to the atmosphere.
  2. Not only is ACCIONA the first Spanish company to set up a Sustainability Committee, but it did so at boardroom level, demonstrating just how seriously we take our commitment to sustainable development.
  3. In 2009, the Company was listed for the third year in a row as Sector Leader by the Dow Jones Sustainability Indexes.
  4. We make an active contribution to education through our Sustainability Workshop programme. The Workshop goes into the classroom and shows children and young people the importance of sustainable development
  5. We are the global renewables operator present in most countries and with the greatest range of clean technologies.
  6. We head the EU’s MARINA project, leading a 17-strong group of European companies united in a research effort that aims at integrating a range of marine renewable energies.
  7. We have signed agreements with major technological partners to work together to speed the roll-out of Electric Vehicles.

We are making important progress in a variety of fields. Even so, the very fact that we still have to make a special point of holding a World Environment Day means that there’s still a long way to go.
