Time for tackling climate change is now

Sacyr Concesiones’ environmental commitment has received global recognition. All of our P3 projects advocate to prioritize the use of renewable energy while progressively transitioning towards sustainable development that is based on energy efficiency. We do so by enhancing the use of renewable energies and contributing to the circular economy.

Giving the best of ourselves in our projects

Putting words into action

Our desalination plant in Binningup (Australia) is completely provisioned by renewable energy sources. Our hospitals have implemented a myriad of energy efficient solutions to significantly reduce gas and water consumption. On top of that, the energy efficient Braga Hospital (Portugal) has won the EDP Electric Energy and Environmental Award in recognition of measures that allowed a decline of 40% in energy consumption.

We manage over 1,000 Km in 8 highways in Chile equipped with lighting devices powered by renewable energy sources. These are just a few of the examples of how Sacyr Concesiones strongly embraces sustainability as a business model to create a better tomorrow, today.
