earth hour 2017 celebrated at ferrovial marking 10 year anniversary
Ferrovial is joining Earth Hour 2017, the biggest global initiative in defense of the environment ever organised, which will be held on the 25th March.

What is earth hour?

Earth hour is a worldwide environmental event organised by WWF which takes place every year on the last Saturday of March. In an attempt to raise awareness on the threat of climate change, the campaign encourages citizens all over to demonstrate their support for action by turning off their non-essential lighting for one hour, between 8:30pm to 9:30pm. This is a special year for the movement as it marks event’s the 10 year anniversary, which first took place in Sydney as symbolic lights out event. Now, it is not just citizens in their homes who partake in the campaign, but also major landmarks and businesses. Last year, over 35,000 companies, 500 of which in Spain, took part in the campaign in over 170 countries. Photography captured from around the world showed popular buildings and structures such as, the Eiffel Tower, Big Ben and the Sydney Opera House without their bright lights.

Ferrovial’s commitment to the environment

In April 2016 Ferrovial approved new, more ambitious GHG reduction targets. The new reduction target for Scope 1&2 is set to 35,41% in intensity terms (t CO2e / million €) for 2020,  based on the 2009 base year, replacing the previous 21.3% objective. This means reducing our scope 1 & 2 in absolute terms and comparable turnover by 35.41 % for the same period. The company has also substantially reduced its carbon footprint: since 2009, the carbon intensity has been reduced by 31.6%  and  18.1% in absolute terms in all Ferrovial activities.
