Aqualia wins “Golden Drop” award for its environmental commitment

The Golden Drop (‘Gota de Oro’) awards seek to create awareness that sanitation is an essential factor in reducing disease. It also aims to enhance education, equal rights, human dignity, respect, security and the conservation of natural resources, since sanitation is a priority in global development. With that in mind, this business association organises the awards, which are directed at all types of public administration, Service Providers, companies and organisations specialising in Environmental Education and/or Awareness-Building Campaigns in regard to sanitation and water saving.

Aqualia received the award in the category reserved for “Service Providers, companies and organisations specialising in Environmental Education and/or Awareness-Building Campaigns in regard to sanitation and water saving”. It was recognised for its commitment to the environment and for undertaking initiatives that, as part of FCC’s Environmental Policy, are aimed at achieving more efficient management of natural resources, more rational energy consumption, and keener identification of the risks associated with the company’s business activities.

Juan Pablo Merino, Director of Communications and RSC, was in charge of collecting the award at an event held at the Hotel Avenida de America in Madrid. The event also distinguished the work of various municipal authorities (Ciudad Rodrigo (Salamanca), Olivenza (Badajoz), Barcelona, Zamora, Sant Cugat del Vallés, Palma de Mallorca, among others); other institutions such as the Provincial Councils of Burgos or of Badajoz; associations such as ATEGRUS; or organisations such as U.N. Water.
