At Atlantica, we are convinced that the diversity of our workforce is an asset that enriches the Company with different ideas, perspectives and experiences. We acknowledge the contribution from people from different genders, nationalities, cultures, races, professional backgrounds, abilities, socio-economic backgrounds and ages. We believe that employees with diverse skills represent an important resource, which increases our chances of identifying innovative solutions and ultimately results in a positive impact on our business performance, as well as in our stakeholders.

We promote diversity and provide a work environment free of discrimination, intimidation and harassment, where everyone can fully participate in the success of the business and where all employees are valued for the distinctive skills and experiences they can bring to the Company.

Our goal is to build a workplace which allows for a prosperous workforce where everybody is treated equally and respected. We believe that a collaborative environment and good corporate climate is necessary to achieve the full potential of our people and improve the efficiency of our teams. Thus, enhancing our performance to meet stakeholder expectations via innovation and creativity.
