Ferrovial has once again been recognized as one of the world’s leading companies in sustainability by the prestigious non-profit organization CDP (formerly Carbon Disclosure Project). The company has also been included in the CDP ‘A List’ because of its actions to combat climate change, being part of the select group of outstanding companies out of the more than 12,000 evaluated.
This recognizes Ferrovial’s 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 2021 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.
This distinction comes on the heels of Ferrovial’s recognition by the Dow Jones Sustainability Index (DJSI) 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 core values of the company’s strategy. For this reason, it has stepped up its Sustainability Plan with the new Sustainability Strategy 2030, which hinges on three axes: environment, community and governance. Ferrovial is the first company to certify its Sustainability Strategy in coherence with the UN Sustainable Development Goals (SDG), as audited by AENOR. Ferrovial has also purchased the rights to build a photovoltaic plant in Seville, Spain, to supply power to its assets in Spain and Portugal, the goal being to fulfil its 2030 emission reduction target.
