Marketing Communications

Abengoa has not signed up to any standard or voluntary code related to marketing, advertising or other promotional or sponsorship activities. However, the company’s internal rules include a demanding and stringent internal control procedure for external communications.

This control system essentially involves a chain of internal authorizations that are ultimately submitted to the Chairman’s Office of the company. All heads of the areas involved in communication content must authorize and complete the information in order for it to be consistent, truthful and complete. This process ensures that the communications generated neither contravene the company’s principles and values nor violate its Code of Conduct.

There were no reports via Abengoa information channels of any claims filed with respect to this matter at any Abengoa company in 2010..
