Aena and the SDGs

Aena aligns its business model with the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals.

Aena and the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs)

Convinced of the importance of the private sector in achieving these objectives, Aena aligns its business model with the new United Nations Agenda for Sustainable Development. The company contributes to achieving Objectives 5, 7, 8, 11, 12, 13, 16 and 17 through specific initiatives set out in its CR Action Plan which emphasise the role of tourism in the following key areas:

  • Environmental protection; efficient use of resources and the fight against climate change (SDGs 7, 11 and 13). We work to encourage sustainable coexistence models in the areas where we operate. We also carry out diverse initiatives that point towards mitigating noise impact, improving energy efficiency, fostering the use of renewable energy or monitoring air quality, for instance.
  • Sustainable economic growth (SDGs 5 and 8). We promote a safe and healthy work environment, characterised by equal opportunities and non-discrimination, fostering diversity, talent management and a work-life balance.
  • Diversity and social inclusion (SDGs 10 and 11). We favour diversity and universal accessibility by promoting the exchange of cultural values, encouraging community participation and contributing to social welfare.
  • We guarantee the different types of sustainable consumption. We provide safe quality services that guarantee the health and protection of all of their users and employees.
  • We strengthen partnerships for achieving sustainable common goals. We recognise the importance of partnerships, communication and transparency as tools for awareness raising and achieving our goals.
