Innovation and sustainability: Acciona’s flagship features

SICF’s Chairman welcomed the Leaders to Acciona’s head offices.

 

Acciona, a leading company in sustainable infrastructure and renewable energy projects, dedicates great efforts to innovation. In 2018, this translated into investment of 225 million euros.

Before travelling to Valladolid for the programme’s second stage, the Leaders were welcomed at Acciona’s main offices by the company’s Vice-Chairman and Chairman of the Spain-India Council Foundation, Juan Ignacio Entrecanales; and by Arantza Ezpeleta, Acciona’s Director of Technology and Innovation.

Arantza Ezpeleta explained to the Leaders that innovation, along with sustainability (Acciona has been carbon neutral since 2016), lie at the heart of the company and are “part of its DNA from its inception.”

Acciona strives to increase its competitivity and efficiency and generate new profits and businesses with the aim of becoming the most innovative company in the industry. It has three innovation centres in Spain: one focused on energy and researching new technologies; another devoted to construction, especially sustainable construction; and a third focusing on water and water technologies.

In addition to this, the company has its own innovation programmes and startup ecosystem, a technology and competitiveness observatory, advanced technologies and digital innovation.

After the presentation, the Leaders were treated to an informal lunch by the Foundation’s Chairman, Juan Ignacio Entrecanales, who gave a very positive assessment of the programme and the opportunities it offers for professionals and companies in the two countries. The lunch was also attended by representatives of some of SICF’s patrons such as Eptisa; Indra; ICEX; and the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, European Union and Cooperation.
