Quality and environmental management

Excellence

As an integral part of ACCIONA, ACCIONA Ingeniería believes excellence is essential when defining its growth model. The basic principles that govern the activities of ACCIONA Ingeniería S.A. revolve around the following values:

  • Profitability- Reducing costs but not quality, avoiding defective work, increasing productivity, contributing to the improvement of the company.
  • Creation of value for clients- Anticipating, identifying and satisfying their requirements and expectations.
  • Creating value for our human resources- Creating a participatory spirit, fostering satisfaction through a well-done job and enrichment with continuous learning.
  • Creating value for society- Tending to and participating in the needs of communities of interest and third parties related to the ACCIONA Ingeniería production model. Respecting and fostering the collective development of society.
  • Collaboration with suppliers and collaborators- Creating relations based on trust, loyalty, transparency, mutual respect and reciprocal contributions. Incentivizing behaviours that are in line with the principles outlined here.

Excellence in Management

One of the main objectives of ACCIONA Ingeniería is to consolidate and seek the continuous improvement of its management system which was designed based on the most demanding international quality management references. Thus, the level of compliance and commitment to international reference standards and regulations are periodically verified by independent entities. This is the only way to guarantee that the company is moving forward on the path towards excellence.

Systematic Management

ACCIONA Ingeniería has developed a Management System in order to establish a model for the way it performs its activities and processes while at the same time implementing internal management mechanisms over them. The phases of the systematic process are as follows:

  • Process identification: Process mapping.
  • Formalisation of processes.
  • Implementation.
  • Monitoring and measuring.
  • Management system consolidation and continuous improvement.
  • Key process management and improvement.
  • Auditing (an improvement tool).
  • Continuous improvement in our daily management.

Environment

Ingeniería integrates the environmental factor into its decisions and operations. As part of the ACCIONA Group, it helps limit the environmental footprint and impact of its activities on the environment and biodiversity. This contribution is expressed through:

  • Controlling the emissions balance. Decreasing GEI emissions with innovative and energy efficiency measures.
  • The evolution of its carbon footprint. The establishment of objectives and investments.
  • The evolution of its water footprint. Applying measures aimed at the efficient management of water consumption.
  • Biodiversity. Protecting and conserving the diversity of the ecosystems. Protecting the planet's biological diversity is essential for the ecosystems to continue to be the source of life and resources as we know it. ACCIONA supports social involvement and scientific progress as concerns defending biodiversity, collaborating with research, conservation, education and awareness projects all while disseminating its own practices.
  • Waste management. Minimisation, reuse and recycling. Fostering initiatives aimed at efficient waste management by promoting recycling and the rational use of resources.

Protecting the Environment

ACCIONA Ingeniería incorporates environmental respect and preservation as an inherent part of the processes it develops. This process is carried out in four phases:

  • Identification. Establishing criteria that make it possible to establish the extent to which ACCIONA Ingeniería processes affect the environment and determine which are the significant environmental aspects.
  • Control. Based on the knowledge of the extent of the effects on the environment caused by its processes, applying systematic controls and monitoring aspects considered significant.
  • Correction. Adopting measures aimed at correcting the real or potential impacts caused by its activities based on pre-defined action protocols or plans.
  • Assessment. Establishing mechanisms to assess the organisation's environmental performance and that make it possible to improve its response capacity.
