Water shortages affect nearly half the world population and it is estimated that this figure will increase with global warming. Also, 844 million people do not have access to a drinking water service and 2.3 billion have no basic sanitation service, which causes 2.6 million deaths a year due to diseases related to water quality.

ACCIONA has positioned itself as a key player in the water treatment sector. Its innovative management seeks to resolve the challenges with respect to the shortage of water resources.
The company maintains a presence in all the stages that make up the end-to-end water life cycle, from the construction of water treatment plants (purification of drinking water, desalination and sewage treatment) to the operation and maintenance of distribution and sewage networks and other services related to the sustainable management of this resource.
ACCIONA has consolidated itself as a benchmark in the market driving technologlical applications and digitization in the sector. It is focusing its activity in the short and medium term on optimizing water charges, reducing the delivery periods for large projects, and increasing demand for its end-to-end management services.
