FIGHT AGAINST CLIMATE CHANGE
For years, Grupo Azvi has been taking measures and carryout out activities to fight climate change. As a result of the steps we have been taking, Azví’s carbon footprint was calculated for the first time in 2014 and this calculation continues to be performed annually.
Continuing with our commitment to act against climate change, in 2019 we have broadened the calculation of our carbon footprint to other business lines aside from construction. These lines include concessions (Cointer Concesiones and Cointer Servicios y Medioambiente), railway transport (Tracción Rail) and railway maintenance (Manfevías).
The calculation is carried out in accordance with the requirements established in the UNE-EN-ISO 14064-1:2012 standard: “Greenhouse gases. Part 1” and with the sectoral benchmark ENCORD (European Network of Construction Companies for Research and Development) and the results are described in the Annual Report on Greenhouse Gases (GHG).
In order to reach our goals in the fight against climate change included in our environmental policy, we have defined a second Plan for the Reduction of Greenhouse Gas Emissions for the period 2018-2022.
