Sacyr Maintenance obtains ISO 50001 energy management system certification

This certification is another milestone in the company’s sustainability commitment and its strategy to reduce polluting greenhouse gas emissions.

07/05/2020

Sacyr Maintenance, a Sacyr subsidiary devoted to the comprehensive maintenance of roads, has obtained the Energy Management System certification, based on the international standard ISO 50001:2011.

This certification is part of Sacyr's commitment to sustainability and is in line with its compliance with the United Nations SDGs. It shows that the company is continuing to implement measures to preserve the environment and reduce CO2 emissions, under the “Sacyr for the Climate” corporate plan.

Through this energy management and continuous improvement system, Sacyr Maintenance has established the requirements for making systematic improvements to service and energy performance, increasing its energy efficiency and reducing its environmental impact, such as its CO2 emissions. Furthermore, this system makes life easier for energy managers, and creates a framework for monitoring the measures implemented as a result of energy audits.

Technology and management improvements

Sacyr Maintenance has already set its targets for reducing its fuel and electricity consumption by implementing technology and management improvements, such as replacing the current fleet of combustion engine vehicles with a hybrid fleet, improvements in the service's operational control, as well as employee training on energy efficiency.

It is also making significant efforts to digitize its facilities and measure the main consumer systems in detail in order to monitor the energy savings made from implementing the measures and, as such, the greenhouse gas emissions avoided.

Sacyr for the Climate

Sacyr is firmly committed to the fight against climate change. Reducing CO2 emissions is a top priority for the group. It therefore measures its carbon footprint and has successfully cut its emissions for the fourth year in a row. In 2018 alone, Sacyr managed to reduce its global emissions by an amount equivalent to the electricity generated by the city of Madrid in one day.

It is a signatory of the Circular Economy Pact, which champions efficient waste management. It also takes action to protect biodiversity in its projects by relocating flora and fauna.

More than 2,300 group suppliers were assessed in 2019 as part of the group's commitment to responsible supply chain management.

In December 2019, Sacyr signed the “Business Ambition for 1.5°C” commitment, an initiative encouraging companies all over the world to align themselves with the United Nations’ target to limit the rise in global temperatures to less than 1.5°C above what it was in pre-industrial times.
