ACCIONA is firmly committed to equal opportunities in every sense of the term and the Company has a range of programs, internal procedures and measures in place to ensure a discrimination-free working environment that encourages and nurtures diversity. Thanks to the “Inserta” agreement signed in 2007 along with Spain’s Fundación ONCE (recently renewed), ACCIONA will be hiring a total 350 differently-abled people over the next four years. In 2012, 65 differently-abled people have joined the Company. In fact, ACCIONA’s commitment to ensure that differently-abled people make up 3% of the workforce through direct employment or alternative means is now formally part of the Company’s strategic objectives.
