In 2010, we implemented a Greenhouse Gas measurement protocol for construction designed to quantify these emissions and eventually reduce them. This led to the adaptation of our computer applications to improve sample-taking, quantification and statistical processing of the Greenhouse Gas emissions generated by our construction activities. As a result, our company was the runner up in the category of “Management for sustainable development” in the 12th edition of the European Environmental Awards.
The measurement protocol, which meets the requirements of ISO 14064-1, also complies with ENCORD, the first standard to receive the “Built on GHG” logo by the GHG Protocol. FCC Construcción was indeed the first Spanish company to have its GHG emissions report verified by AENOR, having, in addition, since 2012 AENOR’s Environmental certificate “CO2 verified”.
As a result of this protocol implementation, GHG emission reports quantifying the GHG emissions generated at the construction sites and permanent locations of FCC Construcción are drafted, verified and published annually.

FCC Construcción includes among its Management Targets for 2017–2020 the extension of the verification of the GHG emissions inventory to 100% of its business activity, both in Spain and abroad, in accordance with the standard ISO 14064-1.
