Ferrovial enters its fifteenth straight year in the Dow Jones Sustainability Index (DJSI). The company is included in the DJSI Europe and DJSI World indices. Ferrovial is the only Spanish company in its industry to be included in the World and European indices. In the Construction and Engineering sector there are included three companies: Ferrovial, South Korean Hyundai (sector leader) and French Vinci.
Inclusion in the index is a vindication of the sustainability strategy that Ferrovial has been implementing since 2002, when it joined the DJSI for the first time and was the only Spanish company in the index. Ferrovial has a Corporate Responsibility strategic plan linked to its business strategy, which is what has driven its implementation and development. The plan is renewed every three years to adapt to stakeholder expectations.
Ferrovial was one of the first Spanish companies to join the UN’s Global Compact initiative, and has been ratifying its commitment to the Compact’s principles every year since 2002. The company has been steadily reinforcing its standing as regards sustainability. The FTSE4Good has recently renewed Ferrovial’s ranking in this index, in which it has been present since 2005 (with a presence in the corresponding Spanish index, the FTSE4Good IBEX, since 2008). The company was awarded maximum ratings (AAA) for its sustainability strategy by MSCI in June 2016. Other indexes in which the company ranks highly are the Carbon Disclosure Project (CDP) and STOXX , clear evidence of a commitment to sustainability in its operations.
