2016 Social Action Program

To drive these projects, Gamesa has a Social Action Program, which in 2015 entered its second year. The company is also developing a broader community work policy. The unique trait defining Gamesa’s Social Action Program is the fact that it is the company’s employees who propose the initiatives to be supported by the firm with corporate funds. The company’s employees also handle ongoing communication with the various organisations and monitor the projects so they can present a resultsoriented report at the end of the following year. In total, Gamesa’s employees presented 57 initiatives in 20 different countries in 2015. From these, the company has selected the following five projects for execution in 2015 and 2016:

This philanthropic project consists of the installation of drip irrigation systems fuelled by solar power for rural households who depend on horticulture for a living in four towns in the region of Kadiri (India).
