Ferrovial was awarded the 2019 Leaders Award in the category for Sustainability at an event held in June at Madrid’s CaixaForum Auditorium. The Leaders Awards, which is celebrating its 32nd edition this year, recognize the best business practices in our country over the past year.
The Leaders Award in the Sustainability category was presented to Cristina Moral, Manager of Corporate Responsibility at Ferrovial, who highlighted that this sort of recognition is of huge importance within the company. Cristina Moral noted that “sustainability is integrated into the company’s strategy, we’re backed by sustainability indices like the Dow Jones Sustainability Index and the FTSE 4 Good, which we’ve included on for 17 and 15 years, respectively. For us, this award is a motivation to continue doing things responsibly, and it’s a motivation for all the teams dedicated to this topic.”
