Social solutions

WE CONTRIBUTE TO THE DEVELOPMENT OF MORE PROSPEROUS SOCIETIES

To help expand and ensure social well-being, ACCIONA develops infrastructure solutions for health, education and cultural engineering, as well as the efforts devoted to the conservation of ecosystems and the regeneration of the natural environment. Putting people at the center of the strategy.

Social solutions still show a low convergence with the 2020 European taxonomy. However, the work of the EU in the development of a social taxonomy shows a paradigm shift and an impulse for this kind of formulas that contribute to the sustainable social development of the communities, a goal that we also share.

Our social solutions aligned with the European taxonomy reach the following percentages:

4 % of sales

21 % of EBITDA

2 % of CAPEX

Because of our commitment to health, we invest in the design, construction and operation of health infrastructures. In the field of care for the elderly, we have created the FAMILYAR social platform, a service based on the simple and safe interaction between these people, their families, public administrations and sector professionals.

We lead the design, construction and sustainable management of universities and student residences and offer support in the management of schools. In addition to teaching services, educational reinforcement and early morning supervision, we currently have five student residences in Spain and a university project.

We provide sustainable solutions for the design and implementation of linear infrastructure that help maintain natural environments and coastal areas. All services are developed with sustainability criteria, using machines and electric vehicles, in addition to the recycling of materials, to reduce CO2 emissions.

ACCIONA Ingeniería Cultural has been developing sustainable solutions for museums and art centers on five continents since 1990. We use sensory technology to design memorable experiences around historical and cultural heritage. With these projects, our goal is to promote local development in the regions where they are implemented.
