Ethical Integrity

Code of Business Ethics

Ferrovial has a Code of Business Ethics, which was approved by the Board of Directors in 2004. It establishes the basic principles and commitments that all companies in the group, its employees and executives, and all other entities linked to Ferrovial or to any of its group companies in which it has a dominant position, must respect and comply with in the exercise of their activities.

  • Respect for the law: Ferrovial’s business and professional activities shall be carried out in strict compliance with the laws in force in every country where it operates.
  • Ethical integrity: The business and professional activities of Ferrovial and its employees shall be based on the value of integrity and carried out in accordance with the principles of honesty, avoidance of every form of corruption and respect for the individual circumstances and needs of all parties involved.
  • Respect for Human Rights: All actions of Ferrovial and its employees shall scrupulously respect the Human Rights and Civil Liberties enshrined in the Universal Declaration of Human Rights.

These principles are a guarantee of integrity for Ferrovial and reflect the group’s adherence to major international inter-governmental initiatives such as the ILO (International Labor Organization) Tripartite Declaration, the OECD (Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development) Guidelines, and the Principles of the United Nations Global Compact, to which Ferrovial has made a special commitment, and which form the basis of its Corporate Responsibility policy.

At present, the Code is enforced in all the countries where Ferrovial operates and applies to the whole workforce. In addition, some companies recently acquired by Ferrovial have their own codes of ethics already in force, which are complemented by the Corporate Code.

The full version of the Code of Ethics is available on the Ferrovial website in Spanish and in English.
