Social Impact

ACCIONA contributes to the management of the social impact, mitigating the risks, taking advantage of opportunities, minimizing the negative impacts and boosting the positive ones, enhancing relationships with the communities and other interest groups.

The social impact management methodology, implemented at ACCIONA, consists of integrating the management of the social impacts during the identification of opportunities and the arrangement and provision of services, with a pro-active approach of commitment to the communities in which it operates.

Throughout 2015, the company consolidated its social impact management methodology, including the study of social risks in the earliest phases of business opportunity identification and in the implementation of the measures during the performance of its activities.

This own social impact management methodology, based on international institutional standards, significantly contributes to mitigate the risks, take advantage of opportunities, minimise negative impacts and to boost positive ones and improve relationships with the communities and other interest groups involved in the project.

The services business applies this methodology to 100% of the projects within the scope of this procedure.
