Leaders in Sustainability

ACCIONA has a business model based on sustainability. We want to have a positive impact on the world.

SUSTAINABILITY IS IN OUR DNA

ACCIONA works to offer solutions to confront global environmental challenges including; water shortage, access to clean energy, climate adaptation, promotion of a circular economy, biodiversity and underdeveloped infrastructure.  

As a global leader in sustainability, ACCIONA is ideally positioned to promote a new generation through transformational infrastructure assets in many forms that contribute to the achievement of the Sustainable Development Goals. ACCIONA doesn’t just build infrastructure like roads, rails, bridges, water treatment facilities, renewable energy assets and so on, we focus our solutions on the needs and opportunities for the development of the sustainable agenda defined by the SDGs and the conversion to a decarbonised economy.
