  • When we are referring to large companies with international reputation in the global economy the link between Vision and Projects is indisputable. Through their intentions and the ways that companies invest in cities arises their own proposal for current and future infrastructures. The guide courses of action thus distinguished by nine pillars: sustainability, solutions for energy and transport, applications, green lifestyle, smart technologies, dialogue platforms, aesthetics and infrastructure related to health.
    Also we can see that a complementary and a very important feature of the corporate vision exists; the concern for humans. Though in all cases that have been reported not all companies promote active participation, they are implying the importance and an interest on the best way of living.
