The ACS Group and the CSR

The ACS has a decentralised structure based around its three areas of: Construction, Environment and Industrial Services and it carries out its activities through dozens of different companies. This complex but highly efficient organisation encourages the Group’s companies to compete and carry out their work independently, at the same time sharing common guidelines which add value for their clients.

Each of the ACS Group’s companies is managed autonomously, with independent functional managements and flexible and sovereign executive bodies. The aim of this type of organisation is to promote:

  • Profitability
  • Decentralisation
  • Reduced bureaucracy
  • Entrepreneurship
  • Competitiveness
  • Flexibility and ability to adapt
  • Diversity
  • Subcontracting of activities

The objective is for all the ACS Group’s companies to share the Group’s values and culture, at the same time as each operates in a standalone manner, individually contributing numerous valid and profitable management formulas, thanks to the multiple factors involved in their decision making and generating know-how and good practices which are also independent.

Hence, there are many different companies within the ACS Group which make their own efforts towards Sustainability adding up to a combined whole. They define their action policies autonomously and manage their resources as efficiently as possible, based at all times on the common principles and objectives defined in the Corporate Social Responsibility Policy of the ACS Group, approved on 26 February 2016, and which sets out the basic and specific principles of action in this field, and the Group's relations with its environment.
