Objectives and commitments (2013-2020)

In 2013 Ferrovial will continue to make progress on its main strategic lines, based on a roadmap for 2020:

  • Measure and manage global greenhouse gases, including Scope 3 gases (emissions from third parties associated with the value chain).
  • Continuously improve environmental risk management in areas where such risk is significant.
  • Anticipate regulatory changes that might positively or negatively affect Ferrovial's activities.
  • Carry out research and development of more sustainable and eco-efficient mobility technologies.
  • Progressively extend the company's passenger mobility plans to other group offices.
  • Extend energy efficiency in the urban environment, particularly in terms of building and city rehabilitation (SmartCities).
  • Design innovative models for the sustainable management of natural resources and biodiversity (SmartForests).
  • Progress in the green purchasing policy, in collaboration with the WWF and Global Forest & Trade.

2013 Goals

  • Keep on track with the roadmap to cut greenhouse gas emissions from Ferrovial activities by 21.3% by 2020, compared with 2009 levels. This commitment covers direct emissions (Scope 1) and indirect emissions (Scope 2, electricity acquired from the grid).
  • Implement a pilot energy rehabilitation and urban regeneration project in Spain, and develop a new framework for the energy renewal of commercial buildings.
  • Implement a SmartForest pilot project, in partnership with the Forest Stewardship Council (FSC). • Complete the “Ferrovial, Capital Natural” project, based on biodiversity markets.
  • Maintain and improve Ferrovial's environmental index standings (particularly the Dow Jones Sustainability Index and Carbon Disclosure Project).

Specific objectives have also been established to improve internal control and management systems:

  • Launch the new corporate platform to calculate and monitor Ferrovial's carbon footprint.
  • Develop and implement a climate and environmental risks universe within the corporate management tool (FRM, Ferrovial Risk Management).
