Responsible Consumption and resource optimization
One of Sacyr's priorities in each of its activities is to reduce the resources consumption through the use of recycled and / or recyclable products.

Efficient use of water
Efficient water management is a vital issue for achieving sustainable development. Sacyr, aware of the value of this resource, continues to move towards an increasingly sustainable management of it. Therefore, in all the activities Sacyr develops, it seeks solutions that optimize water consumption, in addition to prioritizing water reuse and recycled water consumption.

Another of Sacyr's priorities in each of its developing activities is to minimize and improve the management of waste generated by applying appropriate measures for the reduction, recovery and recycling of waste, ensuring the correct disposal of non-recoverable. The main routes of work in this area are aimed to achieve the best environmental result. To this end, the order of priority for waste prevention and management is as follows: prevention, preparation for reuse, recycling, other types of recovery (including energy recovery) and, finally, disposal.

Energy Efficient Consumption
The energy consumption is closely related to the different processes associated with the activities developed within Sacyr. In general, this consumption is linked to the operation of the vehicle pool, auxiliary equipment, lighting, thermal conditioning of buildings and installations.
The companies that make up Sacyr and within the framework of the basic principles that govern their environmental policy, design and implement specific actions aimed at reducing energy dependence and contribute to the fight against climate change and pollution.

Protection of Biodiversity and the Environment
Respect for the environment is a key value for Sacyr, so the strategic work lines to manage biodiversity is to avoid its affection and, when it is not possible, to study and implement the most appropriate measures for each scenario, depending on the type of protection that is necessary to provide and the activity that is being implemented, which minimize the impact of the developed activity.
