- About us
acciona.org, The Energy & Water Foundation, is the ACCIONA’s corporate foundation.

Nowadays it is registered with number 917SND in the State Foundations Unique Registry created in 2015. It is also registered as NGO in the Spanish Agency for International Development Cooperation (so called AECID) with number 2421.

The acciona.org’s mission is to promote the access to energy, water and infrastructures of people and communities with no prospect of covering those needs. With this aim, our actions are based on four pillars:
- Intervention in settlements where poverty and lack of access to basic services are prevalent (isolated rural communities, outlying localities and suburbs).
- Focus on those aspects of ACCIONA’s business impacting on the human development, by leaning on the know-how and experience of its enterprises, as well as on its employees through the corporate volunteering.
- Prioritization of the long-term sustainability of our initiatives, by emphasizing to give service over deploying a project. With this aim, we develop innovative service delivery models, which are implemented by our permanent establishments in the operation countries.
- We collaborate with other development cooperation actors, with the aim of joining and coordinating efforts to have the necessary resources and information to execute the planned actions.
In addition, as a corporate foundation, the Board of Trustees –whose members do not receive remuneration for this activity–, the Management Team and the rest of personnel, as well as the Volunteers of acciona.org, we adopt the ACCIONA’s good governance rules to carry out that mission honorably and responsibly.
THE RESULTS OF OUR ACTIVITY CONTRIBUTE TO THE SUSTAINABLE DEVELOPMENT GOALS (SDG’S) OF THE UN 2030 AGENDA
Yearly our projects increase their positive impact on the benefited population, favouring principally the achievement of SDG6, for its targets of universal access to water and sanitation, and SDG7, for its target of universal access to energy, as well as SDG9 in promoting the innovation.
