For the second consecutive year,Sacyr is featured in the ‘Europe's Climate Leaders 2022' list published by the prestigious newspaper Financial Times and Statista, which recognizes the companies that have achieved the greatest reductions in greenhouse gas emissions between 2015 and 2020.
In this period, we have reduced our emissions by 45%, a feat that endorses the work we have done in recent years, and the path to meet the goals set in our 2021-2025 Strategic Plan.
In addition, the Financial Times highlights our leadership position (’Leadership') in the CDP (Carbon Disclosure Project) and our ambitious goals approved by the Science Based Targets initiative (SBTi), which are in line with what climate experts and scientist consider necessary to cap the global temperature increase at 1.5°C.
Our commitment: carbon neutrality
We are determined to play an active role in the fight against climate change and reducing emissions is one of the foundations of our 2021-2025 Strategic Plan, in which we have made the commitment to transition to a carbon neutral economy before 2050.
In late 2021, our emission reduction objectives were validated by SBTi to become a Net Zero company by 2050. We are committed to reducing our absolute Scope 1 and 2 GHG emissions by 42%, and Scope 3 emissions by 25% in 2030 (base year 2020).
We have been calculating the greenhouse gas emissions caused by our activities for years. We prepare our emissions inventory following the GHG Protocol methodology and submit it to an independent verification study, according to the standard ISAE 3410 "Assurance Engagements on greenhouse gas statements".
In addition, last year we received for the first time the triple seal “Calculo, Reduzo y Compenso” granted by the Spanish Office of Climate Change (OECC), of the Ministry for the Ecological Transition and the Demographic Challenge.
