- The index recognized Ferrovial’s work in support of gender equality
- It emphasized the company’s ESG commitment, which has resulted in its inclusion in many indices such as DJSI and FTSE4Good
Ferrovial has been ranked, for the fourth consecutive year, among the companies most committed to gender equality by the Bloomberg Gender-Equality Index (GEI). The prestigious index takes account of factors such as policy development in this area as well as the presence of women in the company and its transparency in this connection.
The Bloomberg Gender-Equality Index recognized Ferrovial’s contribution to promoting diversity and equal opportunity following an analysis of companies in 45 countries in industries ranging from automobile manufacturing and banking to construction and engineering.
The GEI measures five key areas: leadership and talent management; equal pay and gender parity; inclusive culture; anti-sexual harassment policies; and inclusive brand strategy.
Moreover, 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.
