A STRONG COMMITMENT THAT ADDS VALUE
As part of its corporate strategy, Aldesa affirms its commitment to and engagement with the sustainable development goals, where companies play a key role. Aldesa has identified objective number 9: Innovation and Infrastructure, and number 11: Sustainable Cities and Communities as general goals for the performance of our activity.
Creating value on the basis of operations that extend throughout 8 countries in this respect is a challenge that the Group has set for itself. Nevertheless, there are other objectives in which Aldesa is having a direct effect, such as drinking water and sanitation, decent work and renewable energies.
