The Eco-Management and Audit Scheme (EMAS) is a management tool of voluntary application for companies and other kinds of organizations, that allows to evaluate, manage, improve and announce their behavior in environmental matters.
It is governed by “Regulation (CE) nº 1221/2009 of European Parliament and Council of 25th November 2009 concerning the voluntary participation of organizations in a Community environmental management and audit scheme” known as EMAS III or EMAS global and by the “Commission Regulation (EU) 2017/1505 of 28 August 2017 amending Annexes I, II and III to Regulation (EC) No 1221/2009" and "Commission Regulation (EU) 2018/2026 of 19 December 2018 amending Annex IV to Regulation (EC) No 1221/2009".

Since we understand the importance of implementing an environmental impact control system throughout the entire value chain, we closely monitor our suppliers.
In 2020, we initially evaluated 1,260 suppliers, 65% of which comply with environmental and social criteria. Additionally, another 2,436 suppliers have been re-evaluated to ensure their compliance with our requirements, with more than 95% of them being favorable.
Suppliers are fundamental to our activity and, as part of the same team, we expect them to comply with both the applicable legal regulations and our Corporate Policies.
Our collaborators agree to comply with the terms of our Sustainability Policy Framework, as well as those policies regarding human rights, employment rights, the environment, health and safety, and Sacyr’s Code of Conduct. Compliance with human rights, diversity and inclusion in the workplace are key to the development of our values.
Within the supply chain, Sacyr and its subsidiaries collaborate with suppliers and subcontractors in various fields, who are subject to approval and control procedures to ensure their capability and efficiency.
Customer satisfaction is a key indicator for assessing an organization’s overall performance. We want to understand both their perceptions and their needs and expectations to improve our results.
