Areas of Improvement

Abengoa’s commitment to innovation necessarily includes a process of ongoing improvement. Therefore, the R&D assessment process was implemented throughout the company’s business units in 2010 as a vehicle for ensuring an intensive and dynamic process of innovation. As the creation of value as a product of innovation is key to securing favorable evolution in the different areas of business, it must be measured and managed. R&D assessment is a crucial step forward towards ensuring continuous knowledge of what is being done and the benefits reaped, thereby helping to improve decision-making processes.
