Human Rights

Supply Chain

Ferrovial is also committed to respecting and promoting Human Rights across the supply chain. The company promotes the creation of new models of supplier orders and contracts that give greater weight to aspects of Corporate Responsibility.

An analysis of the profile of suppliers, products and countries of origin carried out by the different company businesses does not reveal significant changes with respect to previous years. Most of Ferrovial’s investments are in OECD countries or in upper-middle or high-income countries according to the World Bank classification. Their legislation recognizes and guarantees respect for Human Rights, which is why the risk of Ferrovial's supply chain has been rated as low.

Since 2008, the Construction division has had a specific Corporate Responsibility clause in its supplier-partner agreements. These agreements are made with major suppliers. In 2012, Services included the clause in its contracts, in order to extend Ferrovial's commitment to Corporate Responsibility to its supply chain. Ferrovial has informed its suppliers of its adherence to Global Compact Principles, presented them with a copy of those principles and urged them to take them into account in their operations.

Finally, a new methodology to analyze high-risk suppliers has been implemented, based on the Global Compact Principles and FTSE4Good.
