Ferrovial has again been recognized as one of the world’s leading companies in sustainability by CDP (formerly Carbon Disclosure Project). As in previous years, the company is in the CDP’s prestigious ‘A list‘ on the basis of its actions against climate change.
This is in recognition of Ferrovial’s transparency and its efforts to reduce emissions from its activities, mitigate the risks arising from climate change and contribute to the development of a low-carbon economy. The assessment was based on the data reported by Ferrovial in the CDP 2022 climate change questionnaire.
CDP is a global environmental not-for-profit organization whose annual environmental survey and company assessment methodology are recognized internationally as the gold standard for corporate environmental transparency. It uses an independent proprietary methodology to evaluate companies based on their awareness and management of environmental risks and their actions in terms of environmental leadership.
The distinction is in addition to Ferrovial’s recognition by the Dow Jones Sustainability Index (DJSI), for the 21st consecutive year, as one of the most sustainable companies in the world in its sector. Ferrovial is also a member of other sustainability indexes such as FTSE4Good (and its Spanish version, FTSE4Good IBEX), Vigeo, ISS ESG, Sustainalytics and GRESB.
Sustainability continues to be one of the company’s core values. For this reason, Ferrovial presented its Sustainability Strategy 2030, which hinges on three axes — environment, community and governance — and is aligned with its business strategy, the Horizon 24 plan. Ferrovial was also the first company to certify its sustainability strategy in coherence with the UN Sustainable Development Goals (SDG), as audited by AENOR.
Its commitment to ESG goes beyond sustainability. This is evidenced by Ferrovial’s Corporate Governance certification by AENOR; it is the first infrastructure company to be so certified. The company also carries out social initiatives to ensure equal opportunities and it invests in the community through social programs that have improved the living standards of more than 558,000 people to date.
