Environmental Management

Environmental Management

Commitment to the protection of the environment, respect for the environment or efficiency in the consumption of energy resources are common denominators in Elecnor's activities and form part of the organisation's culture and values. 

The environmental control mechanisms currently implemented in the company are based on Environmental Management and Energy Management Systems certified in accordance with the ISO 14001:2015 and ISO 50001:2011 standards.

The Environmental Management System defines a system for identifying, evaluating and recording the environmental aspects arising from Elecnor's activities in order to determine which of them are significant. 

In addition, the implementation and certification of the Energy Management System according to the ISO 50001:2011 standard was consolidated, thereby reinforcing the Group's commitment to sustainability. 

The strategy of the Elecnor Group in terms of Environmental Management is governed by the following principles of conduct:

  • Incorporation of the environmental aspect into the decision-making processes regarding investments and the planning and realisation of activities, by fostering consideration of this aspect in cost-benefit analyses.
  • Promotion of the protection, conservation and sustainable use of the natural environment (air, water, soil, flora, fauna and landscape) through the adoption of specific preventive, palliative and compensatory measures, aimed at the prevention or the restoration of zones which may be affected by the Group’s activities.
  • Responsible and efficient management of water resources, by looking after every aspect of the full cycle, supporting social development and the conservation of ecosystems.
  • Involvement of all of its interest groups (employees, shareholders, customers, suppliers and society in general) in the joint search for useful solutions to the challenge of conserving and developing the environment and the sustainable use of natural resources.
