Abengoa’s model of corporate social responsibility is also rooted in a raft of values that nowadays constitute the foundations of its Code of Ethics and form part of its business culture. By harnessing all available channels, the company fosters awareness and the application of these values and implements control and review mechanisms that ensure they are correctly monitored and updated.

Of these values, we would highlight the following due to their importance:

  • Integrity: Honesty in professional conduct is a hallmark of Abengoa’s identity and is evident in all the actions of its personnel, both within and outside the company. Integrity is a core value of our employees and the company as a whole in dealings with customers, suppliers, shareholders, the communities in which we operate and society in general.
  • Legality: Compliance with the law is not only an external requirement and, therefore, a binding obligation on the company, but also encompasses respect for the law, which provides our actions with added security and cushions business risks.
  • Professional rigor: The concept of professionalism at Abengoa is closely linked to our desire to provide high levels of service when engaging in business and to become thoroughly involved in the business project at hand. All of our actions must adhere to the notion of professional responsibility and are governed by the principles set forth in the Common Management Systems.
  • Confidentiality: Abengoa expects its employees to exercise discretion and prudence in their communications and relations with third parties, the aim being to safeguard the information to which the company has access.
  • Quality: Abengoa is unflinchingly committed to quality in all of its internal and external endeavors. Far from being a task exclusive to the management or a specific group of people, this commitment governs the daily activities of all members of the company. Abengoa incorporates specific rules on quality, which are the product of its knowledge, common sense, rigor, order and responsibility in conducting business.
