The core mission of our work at ACCIONA is to foster sustainable development and social well-being. To accomplish this, we partner with local communities to create world-class projects and innovative solutions that benefit people and the planet.
As a global citizen committed to growing strong community partnerships, ACCIONA is also an active member of the United Nations Global Compact, a voluntary initiative focused on human rights and the environment, and the World Business Council for Sustainable Development, a global association of 180 companies dedicated to eco-efficiency and corporate responsibility.
ACCIONA’s clean, sustainable projects support healthy communities by delivering positive impacts on the environment and vitalizing local job creation. Through our other community initiatives, including charitable donations, education and scholarships, we constantly strive to foster innovation and sustainability worldwide.
ACCIONA’s renewable energy projects deliver real, measurable economic and social benefits to communities by creating affordable energy, boosting investments and creating jobs.
According to the American Wind Energy Association, wind energy has driven more than $100 billion of private investment into the U.S. since 2008. A recent report from the International Renewable Energy Agency estimates that the renewable energy industry employs 5.7 million people worldwide. And these numbers continue to grow.
Over the long term, renewable energy also reduces overall consumer costs, encourages energy independence, stimulates local economic development and – most importantly – makes our environment cleaner, healthier and safer.
