Human Rights

Risk management

The global corporate risk management system (FRM) covers the risks of Human Rights violations. The area of compliance risks includes risks due to insufficient or faulty procedures implemented to ensure compliance with the ethical principles that govern the company’s relationship with its employees.

With regard to security staff training, the Security Duties and Procedures Manuals have been expanded with a section on Human Rights rules to be followed by employees, as well as new instructions in this area for the different security departments.

Ferrovial maintains its commitment to promote Human Rights under the Millennium Development Goals, specifically with respect to target 7C: "Halve, by 2015, the proportion of the population without sustainable access to safe drinking water and basic sanitation." Four projects dealing with this target were in operation in 2012 in Tanzania, Ethiopia, Colombia and Peru, in collaboration with the development NGOs ONGAWA, Intermón Oxfam, Ayuda en Acción and Plan España. These projects amount to total investment of almost one million euro, with some 50,000 beneficiaries and 15 volunteers.

Ferrovial prohibits any type of discrimination toward its customers and society in general, and undertakes to provide information on its operations in a fast, clear and secure way. Ferrovial is committed to complying with local legislation and to respecting the culture, customs and values of the people in the communities where the company operates. Ferrovial contributes to the promotion of human rights compliance, maintains an open dialog with its stakeholders and takes part in social activities with the community.
