CDP, the world’s most important climate disclosure organization, has ranked Sacyr among the top 8% of the most valued companies for its responsible management of the value chain in the fight against climate change. Given its performance, the company appears on the 2022 Supplier Engagement Leader ranking.
“We are proud to be recognized on CDP’s 2022 Supplier Engagement Leaderboard for our efforts to reduce the risk of climate change in conjunction with our suppliers. This recognition is in addition to our appearance on CDP’s A List for our climate performance,” explains Encarna Mateos, director of Quality, Environment, and Energy at Sacyr.
According to CDP Global Value Chain director, Sonya Bhonsle, "This year’s report reveals that environmental action is not progressing at the speed, scale, and scope needed to limit global temperature rise to 1.5º C, and that many companies still fail to recognize that their environmental impact extends far beyond their operations and climate change. We need to see immediate environmental leadership on a corporate level to address their impact on both climate change and nature.”
For this recognition, the climate organization assesses the extent to which companies involve their suppliers in the fight against climate change and biodiversity loss.
For the 2022 classification, CDP takes into account governance strength, the quality of the established objectives, progress on measuring Scope 3 emissions, and value chain commitment.
Sacyr’s commitment to sustainability is part of its 2021-2025 Strategic Plan, which outlines the Group’s economic, social, and environmental challenges, and in which they urge all stakeholders to take part.
With this target in mind, Sacyr works transversally across the life cycle of the various activities it undertakes to reduce all value chain-related emissions.
To limit global temperature rise, Sacyr addresses its impact on both climate change and nature, working with suppliers in an integrated fashion and incentivizing the organization’s commitment.
