Abengoa signs agreement with Fundéu to promote correct use of Spanish

June 17, 2010

  • The company will incorporate the recommendations of the Español Urgente Foundation (Fundéu BBVA) into its texts.
  • This agreement represents one more step in Abengoa’s commitment to communicating and disseminating transparent and reliable information to its stakeholders.

Seville, 17 June 2010.- Abengoa, the leading company for sustainable development solutions, and the Español Urgente Foundation (Fundéu BBVA) have today signed a collaboration agreement in which Fundéu, in its role promoting the correct use of the Spanish language, will review various texts drafted by Abengoa in order to analyse their content and to make recommendations on the correct use of the language.

As part of the agreement, Fundéu will also issue its linguistic quality certificate for the texts produced by the company that the Foundation will review, and it will also verify the spelling, typography, vocabulary, syntax and style of Abengoa’s website.

The company, which views communication as a key tool in achieving its objectives and for creating a fluid, simple and direct dialogue with its stakeholders in line with its philosophy, will incorporate the recommendations and corrections proposed by Fundéu into its publications.

Joaquín Müller-Thyssen Bergareche, Director General of Fundéu-BBVA, and Miguel Ángel Jiménez-Velasco, General Secretary of Abengoa, took part in the signing of the agreement at the headquarters of the Fundéu BBVA Foundation.

The agreement represents one more step in Abengoa’s commitment to dialogue and the dissemination of transparent and reliable information to its stakeholders, and the company now provides them with numerous communication channels adapted to each of their needs. “The support of an institution like Fundéu will help us to ensure that the information that we publish through our various channels is comprehensible for readers that may be unfamiliar with Abengoa’s activities and an example of the correct use of our language”, said Miguel Ángel Jiménez-Velasco, General Secretary of Abengoa.

The agreement also includes two annual training courses on the "Correct use of Spanish”, in response to Abengoa’s interest in raising awareness of this issue and instilling the importance of the correct use of Spanish in all its employees.
