In 2020, ACCIONA, as part of the Peace River Hydro Partners (PRHP) joint venture, has contributed $90,947 to over 30 different charities, groups, and programs. All were located within the Peace Region. The largest contributions in 2020 included $35,000 towards a second scholarship at Northern Lights College, sponsorship of the Youth Changing Tomorrow Conference where PRHP also delivered the keynote speech, and the “12 Days of Giving” holiday campaign which gave $35,750 to a variety of groups (Click here for further information). In 2019, PRHP also reached their goal of $90,000 in donations.
“ACCIONA, as part of PRHP, is proud to support the local communities where our projects take place” said Carlos Planelles, Managing Director of ACCIONA’s Infrastructure division in North America. “The innovative nature of reducing landfill waste while supporting the communities that are working to help the Peace Region thrive, makes this program a flagship of our community engagement efforts.” The funds were raised through its recycling program. PRHP recycles pop cans and bottles, along with construction debris like scrap cable, wiring, metal trim, culvert cuttings, and other waste materials. Not only this program does prevent these items from ending up in landfills, but we turn the financial return into something positive that benefits and support the local communities of the Peace Region. Without the diligent efforts of the team, the recycling program would not be sustainable. Rain or shine, each of these dedicated team members works daily towards the success of the program and makes all of our community donations possible.
