Ferrovial has as one of its priorities the environmental performance in order to strengthen its capacities to offer infrastructure and services that respond to global challenges.
Environmental sustainability is playing an increasingly important role in Ferrovial, not only from a liability perspective or as a mechanism to manage a certain type of risk more efficiently, but also as a source of new ideas and business models.
In this sense, Ferrovial strengthens its capacities to offer services and infrastructures that respond to global challenges, such as climate change, the energy crisis or the loss of biodiversity.
Ferrovial is committed to the sustainable development of society by reporting indicators such as CO2 emissions (see Carbon Footprint) , water consumption and waste, RCDs, etc. In addition, the company sets targets for improving its environmental performance and strengthens its climate strategy by developing infrastructure and services for a “green” low-emission economy that shows in its portfolio the projects carried out.
NON HAZARDOUS WASTE, HAZARDOUS WASTE, CDW'S AND WASTE RECYCLING
REDUCING THE ENVIRONMENTAL IMPACT
The high volumes of soil managed on work sites have motivated Ferrovial to set an objective of reusing them, seeking to minimize the impacts associated with this activity. For this reason, an 80% target for soil reuse has been established for 2020, considering 2015 as the base year.
REUSED SOIL IN WORK SITES
|Materials reused at worksite (m3)||11,692,839||15,498,439||14,336,346|
|Topsoil reused (m3)||558,310||1,458,280||922,936|
WASTE BY TYPE AND DISPOSAL METHOD
|Waste produced from construction and demolition(m³)||1,628,147||1,439,795||2,344,504|
|Total soil from excavation(m³)||19,759,576||27,612,500||19,363,051|
|Material sent to landfill outside the worksite(m³)||1,447,743||5,287,068||528,749|
|Material reused at worksite (m³)||11,692,839||15,498,439||14,336,346|
|Material sent to other worksite or authorized landfill(m³)||6,060,683||5,368,713||3,575,020|
NON HAZARDOUS WASTE
The company has also reduced the production of non-hazardous waste, reaching the target of a 2.5% annual reduction, taking 2016 as the base year.
|Non hazardous Waste disposed (Tn)||2016||2017||2018|
** Non-hazardous waste data reported in 2018 annual report include 161,740 Tn of waste managed but not produced by Ferrovial.
*The non-hazardous waste in 2016 have been recalculated taking into account the contribution of the new companies acquired in order to improve the comparability of the data.
The objective that establishes a 5% annual reduction of hazardous waste generation is met
|Hazardous waste generated (Tn)||2017||2018|
