Corporate responsibility


The project to identify material issues for Ferrovial in the area of Corporate Social Responsibility began in 2011. The second phase of research was completed in 2012.

The material issues for Ferrovial have been analyzed to define the information to be presented in the Annual Report, and a matrix has been prepared based on the conclusions. This analysis helps identify what is very important for the company, manage critical points, establish objectives and action plans and prioritize issues that are of interest to the different stakeholders.

This definitive matrix uses the nexus between the vision of a select group of the company's internal stakeholders and the perceptions of external stakeholders: suppliers, labor unions, NGOs, experts in corporate responsibility, the academic community and the media.

In an initial phase a materiality matrix for the infrastructure management sector was created by analyzing:

  • The ESG criteria followed by institutional investors.
  • Issues related to Corporate Responsibility at the AGMs of companies in the sector.
  • Relevant documents and reports issued by international organizations.
  • Monitoring by the media at both local and international level of Corporate Responsibility issues.

The second phase, developed in 2012, consisted of a series of interviews with: 10 internal and 15 external opinion leaders, who gave their opinion on the different aspects of Corporate Responsibility and how they affected Ferrovial.

The Annual Corporate Responsibility Report addresses, prioritizes and highlights the material issues that guide the content of the document. The matrix provides the basis for preparing the content of this publication, as it covers the expectations of stakeholders according to the AA1000APS standard.

The 78 issues identified have been classified into 15 groups. The following were chosen as the 10 most relevant issues:
