- The index recognizes Ferrovial’s work in support of gender equality
- It emphasizes the company’s commitment to ESG, which has resulted in its inclusion in such indices as the Dow Jones Sustainability Index and FTSE4Good
Ferrovial has been ranked among the companies most committed to gender equality by the Bloomberg Gender-Equality Index (GEI), for the third consecutive year. The prestigious index considers such factors as policy development in this area, as well as the presence of women in the company and its transparency in this connection.
Bloomberg, which produced the index by analyzing companies from 45 countries in sectors ranging from the automobile industry through banking to construction and engineering, acknowledges Ferrovial’s efforts to promote diversity and equal opportunity.
The GEI measures five key areas: female leadership and talent pipeline; equal pay & gender pay equality; inclusive culture; sexual harassment policies; and pro-women brand.
“We are very proud that our efforts to promote diversity and equal opportunity have been recognized once again by the prestigious Bloomberg Gender-Equality Index,” said Ignacio Madridejos, CEO of Ferrovial.
Additionally, for over a decade, Ferrovial has had the “Equality Employer” seal, which is granted by Spain’s Ministry of Equality to companies that favor equal opportunity and give priority to merit and talent.
Recognition by world-leading indexes
The company’s activities in this area are not confined to the work acknowledged by its inclusion in the GEI.
Ferrovial also carries out numerous actions in the environmental, social and economic fields, resulting in its inclusion in other leading indices, such as the Dow Jones Sustainability Index (DJSI), where it is now in its 20th year.
The company’s progress in this area has also been recognized by other indexes such as FTSE4Good (and its Spanish version, FTSE4Good IBEX), CDP, STOXX, MSCI, Vigeo and ISS.
