Adif is aware of the relevant impact that the development of its activity has on the communities in which it operates and in the country as a whole.
Some disused real-estate assets are being reused in social or business projects, in collaboration with institutions, non-profit organizations or companies. By being at the service of the economic and social development of the territories where they are located, these assets once again generate value and contribute to sustainable development and social well-being.
Assets for Development Program: This program aims to promote the recovery of disused real- estate assets so that they can be reused in social or business projects, in collaboration with institutions, non-profit organizations or companies. This will generate economic activity, especially in rural settings. In 2020, two properties were leased within the framework of this program. They were the stations Bustarviejo-Valdemanco (Community of Madrid) and Garga-Transmonte (A Coruña).
Leases with social criteria. Adif leases various assets to non-profit entities (public administrations, associations and foundations) at advantageous prices provided that the object of the lease involves social, cultural, welfare, tourist, educational or community activities. In 2020, 23 social criteria lease agreements were signed.
Greenways Program Adif is restoring old disused railway lines to convert them into routes for rural development and new forms of active and sustainable tourism. Throughout Spain there are a total of 126 Adif Greenways, conditioned or in the process of being conditioned, with a total extension of 1,702 km. (data as of December 31, 2020).
