FCC Construcción joins UN Global Compact Forward Faster initiative to accelerate private sector action to reach SDGs
FCC Construcción joined a new initiative today to accelerate private sector action at the pace and scale needed to deliver on the 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) and meet the 2030 Agenda.

FCC Construcción has committed to nine targets in five action areas:
