Social commitment

Social action

Ferrovial’s Corporate Responsibility strategy confirms the company’s strategic vision of community investment. One aspect that is common to all Ferrovial social action is the involvement of employees in its charitable projects, whether by volunteer work either on-site or at offices (the Social Infrastructure program), or by choosing the projects that they wish to support (the "Juntos Sumamos" program).

Through this strategy, Ferrovial structures its social action via open charity drives, thus ensuring transparency and quality in its community investment initiatives.

In addition to the "Juntos Sumamos" matching-gift program (running since 2005), the second call for social assistance projects was announced in 2012, giving organizations in the Third Sector the opportunity to partner Ferrovial and getting Ferrovial employees directly involved via the Social Infrastructure Program.

Ferrovial is also a responsible donor that bases its donations on background information and subsequently checks the work of the NGO in question and the impact of the donation. The company works with Fundación Lealtad, a not-for-profit organization that aims to maintain the transparency and good practices of NGOs, and applies its recommendations in relation to the Third Sector. This collaboration guarantees that the counterparties with which the company works meet the standards of good governance and transparency.

The company has staff responsible for the monitoring and control of the quality of its social action projects to ensure that the funds are invested both appropriately and efficiently.

In 2012, Ferrovial carried out 346 social action projects, including the following:
