Profitability, risk control and sustainable growth. Our strategic vision is based on these three parameters, which drives our business model and value creation
Sacyr Group's operating environment provides us with new challenges and opportunities as we continue
along the path we embarked upon in 2015, when the entire Company's strategy was established.
Sacyr was founded in 1986 and since then we have overcome all the challenges we have faced thanks to
our people and our values.
Thousands of people who have talent, rigour and the passion for doing a good job. We are driven by
collaboration, trust in the Group, loyalty.
Based on: profitability, risk control and sustainable growth.We developed 3 areas of strategic focus that drive activities in our value-creating business model

At Sacyr, we innovate to improve people's quality of life through the implementation of large
infrastructure and service projects that generate value for our employees, customers and shareholders.
We seek change because we want to build a better planet. A world made by and for citizens. Without
borders. A world that changes along with us and that we change thanks to the power of our talent and
energy. Innovation is the cornerstone that supports the whole transformation process.
Our model rests on four key premises:
Sacyr is carrying out an ambitious development of its innovation activity. Since 2004, we have obtained
external and official recognition in the form of funding, subsidies or certification of our content as an
R&D&I activity, across a wide portfolio of projects through different tenders from public bodies.
We see technological innovation, research and development as critical factors in ensuring business success.
For this reason, we have an R&D+i Management System certified by AENOR, in accordance with the UNE
166002.214 standard, which helps us to rationalise and systematise all our R&D+i activities.
Sacyr iChallenges is our open innovation and co-creation programme aimed at solving business challenges posed by the company alongside partners in the innovation ecosystem. For more tan nine years, we have committed to collaboration and co-creation with the innovative ecosystem on a global level.
At the last staging of Sacyr iChallenges we expanded the spectrum of innovative agents with whom to co-create in order to consolidate our position as a benchmark programme for open innovation. The programme is open to proposals from large companies, technology firms, joint ventures, research centres, universities, start-ups, etc. Sacyr wants to work alongside all the innovative players that can provide solutions to the challenges posed by its initiative.
These challenges aim to optimise and improve our processes through innovative solutions or new business models in different areas: Engineering and Infrastructure, Industrial, Services and Concessions.
