ACCIONA’s Annual Shareholder Meeting goes “green”

May 25, 2017 | Events

APD has designed a stage set with a predominance of natural materials, in line with Grupo ACCIONA’s commitment to sustainability.

Held at the Auditorium of the City of Alcobendas in Madrid on 18th May, and presided by its chairman, José Manuel Entrecanales, Grupo ACCIONA’s Annual Shareholder Meeting presented its attendees with the key aspects of the fiscal year and the company’s outlook.

As is becoming customary, ACCIONA Producciones y Diseño (APD) was responsible for the integral management of this annual high-profile event, featuring an assessment of the previous fiscal year and were the management was submitted to the valuation of the shareholder base.

The stage setting for the event was characterised by a striking scenography of plant motifs, primarily made of natural materials following sustainable criteria. To this end, the stage was mostly populated with preserved elements such as freeze-dried plants, a biodegradable resource that is more sustainable than real plants. In addition, the frontal section of the table was in bronze, a material that is sustainable and 100% recyclable, in line with the company’s commitment to sustainability. ACCIONA centres the development of its activities in a business portfolio that is low in carbon emissions and promotes the development of innovative programmes seeking efficient solutions in the fight against climate change.

Together with the design, APD organised and was responsible for the technical coordination of the Meeting, from the audio-visual projections and presentations, to the lighting, sound, streaming broadcast, simultaneous translation and stage direction.

Once more, the 2017 Annual Shareholder Meeting was a “carbon neutral” event, where carbon dioxide emissions linked to the organisation of the event and those produced by the transit of the attendees will be compensated with a clean energy project.

Participants of the Annual Shareholder Meeting who travelled to Alcobendas discovered their own carbon footprint using CO2 calculators installed in tablets available at the venue.

ACCIONA Producciones y Diseño has a wide experience in the integral management of corporate events. Many companies entrust the organisation of their conventions, board meetings, product presentations or award ceremonies to ACCIONA.

ACCIONA Producciones y Diseño’s experience in this type of corporate events has resulted in companies such as Santalucía, Vodafone, Endesa, Bestinver, Bankinter, Airbus, Unipapel or Adama chosing APD to organise some of their events, conventions, board meetings, sales team meetings, award ceremonies and product presentations, among others.
