ACCIONA's company goal is to be a leader in sustainable energy and innovation. We're fighting climate change by being carbon neutral in 2016, using natural resources in a sustainable manner, and protecting biodiversity in every project we undertake.
Respect for the environment is a fundamental principle guiding everything ACCIONA does, based on the company’s mission, vision and values. This commitment is evidenced by the approval of the company’s Environmental Policy, Biodiversity Policy, Climate Change Policy and its Water Policy. All these are part of ACCIONA’s Policies Book, reflecting the commitments and principles applicable to the Company in economic, social and environmental terms.
We're dedicated to treating the environment with the respect that it deserves. We do this by adhering to the best environmental practices possible throughout all of our activities, minimizing environmental impacts while conserving natural resources.
Our environmental strategy is structured around combating climate change, promoting energy conservation, optimizing water usage, efficient resource usage, effective waste management, and protecting the environment.
Canada's biodiversity is key to its identity. We're committed to preserving and promoting this biodiversity through wildlife protection, local consultations, and innovative approaches to development.
ACCIONA has dedicated itself to being a leader in the transition to low-carbon business models that reduce or mitigate the effects of climate change. In accordance with our company-wide Sustainability Master Plan, we've adopted ambitious global objectives to reduce emissions and focus on developing projects that decrease greenhouse gas output and provide renewable energy to our clients.
We believe that access to water is an essential human right, and we've dedicated ourselves across the world to providing access to water as one of our core missions. We recognize that water is a limited and irreplaceable natural resource, and so our water management strategy takes account of water availability, quality, and its role within the ecosystem in which it resides.
In spite of their significant environmental value, wet grasslands across the globe have been heavily affected by changes brought by agricultural and urban development.
