FIGHT AGAINST CLIMATE CHANGE

For years, Grupo Azvi has been taking measures and carrying out actions to combat climate change. As a result of the steps we have been taking, the carbon footprint of one of the group’s companies was calculated for the first time in 2014 (Azvi).

Continuing with our commitment to act against climate change, the carbon footprint of the concessions business line (Cointer Concesiones and Azsuma) was calculated in 2018, in addition to other business lines of the group: rail transport (Traccion Rail), rail maintenance (Manfevias) and extending the construction business line (Ispalvia).

The calculation is carried out in accordance with the requirements established in the UNE-EN-ISO 14064-1:2019 “Greenhouse gases. Part 1”.

Every year, the Greenhouse Gas Inventory is verified by AENOR in accordance with the UNE-EN ISO 14064-1 of all Grupo Azvi companies that have calculated their carbon footprint and are registered in the Carbon Footprint Register of the Ministry for Ecological Transition and the Demographic Challenge and in the Andalusian Emissions Compensation System (SACE) of the Andalusian Regional Government.

In order to reach our goals in the fight against climate change included in our environmental policy, we continue to develop the actions defined in the second Plan for the Reduction of Greenhouse Gas Emissions for the period 2018-2022.
