The FCC Group celebrates the 5th anniversary of the approval of the SDGs by the United Nations and joins the #SupportingtheSDGs campaign, in line with its sustainability strategy

The Corporate Social Responsibility policy approved by the Board of Directors of the Group in 2016 and the IV Master Plan of CSR it develops are an integral element in the operations of the FCC Group, in line with the SDGs. 
Within the framework of the celebration of the SDG Week promoted by the Spanish Global Compact Network, the FCC Group announces some of the projects rolled out and associated with sustainability in its different business areas, which have a big impact on these decisive actions that will lead to the fulfilment of the 2030 Agenda, while demonstrating the company's commitment to climate action and for the change of model, from a linear economy to a circular economy. 
Technological innovation is one of the company's main strategic commitments and used as an instrument to improve the well-being of citizens and make cities increasingly sustainable.
FCC Medio Ambiente has launched e-Urban, the new electric pickup truck. An electric vehicle designed to reduce emissions and the current high energy consumption, and to improve security. This innovative vehicle, ready for a full service in 100% electric mode, is  the first electric collection vehicle with a weight and performance that is identical to the current combustion engine vehicles.
In addition energy saving and lower emissions, the new vehicle also greatly reduces operating costs and increases its service life. All in all, a solid and wide-ranging contribution to Smart Cities.

The development and progress of the local communities where FCC operates is another of the Group's hallmarks. 
The comprehensive water management business, Aqualia, is working on the project to improve and expand the capacity and efficiency of the El Salitre Wastewater Treatment Plant (WWTP), in the north of Bogotá (Colombia). The El Salitre WWTP is located at the mouth of the Juan Amarillo River, one of the main tributaries of the Bogotá River, which receives the wastewater generated by homes and industries in the centre and north of the city, with about 2,700,000 inhabitants. This is the largest wastewater sanitation project that has been carried out so far in the country. 
The renewed infrastructure, which is expected to be commissioned in 2021, will bring relevant social (restoration of some areas and construction of a park), environmental (decontamination and recovery of the Bogotá river) and economic impacts (investment of US $388 million and the creation of more than 1,000 direct jobs). 


FCC Construcción leads various work groups related to the standardisation of sustainable construction, thus learning about the latest trends and contributing to their development and dissemination, both in the projects it executes and among its stakeholders. 
FCC Construcción has a significant background in the participation in numerous work commissions for the development of different standards of sustainable construction, among which the International Technical Committees ISO/TC59/SC17 and CEN/TC350 stand out, specifically chairing the work groups that focus on the establishment of sustainability principles and the criteria for their assessment in civil works, the company's main activity abroad.
This is our responsible way of understanding the construction business; promoting actions and strategies for the sustainable development of the societies in which we operate with our projects and generating value for our stakeholders, the local communities with which we interact and, ultimately, future generations.


ENERGY EFFICIENCY (Cementos Portland Valderrivas)

Cementos Portland Valderrivas is committed to the circular economy model through energy recovery in the production of cement. 
A new facility is expected to be commissioned by the end of 2020 at the Alcalá de Guadaira (Seville) factory, which aims to replace the energy supply of fossil fuels with renewable energy obtained from biomass.
The goal of this facility is to reduce net greenhouse gas emissions generated by the use of fossil fuels by 40%, thus helping to reduce the impact generated on the environment and reduce the effects derived from climate change. 


In addition to the different innovation and collaboration projects that it promotes from its different businesses, the FCC Group contributes, through its daily activity and directly, to the achievement of the following SDGs:
