The endurance collected in ESG criteria has become the engine and lever of change for companies. Recentt years have been characterized by the evolution of the regulatory framework, both national and international, as well as the demand from the investment community, which has facilitated the transition towards a low-carbon green economy. Current social needs require the construction sector to move towards more sustainable, decarbonized,d and inclusive buildings.
Due to this period of transition that we are experiencing, which is also affected by external catalysts, our industry must act as a reference to create an economy and one more sustainable society. In this sense, as a promoter of reference in Spain, at Metrovacesa we respond to sustainability in its widest concept, taking as a starting point compelling facts in three dimensions: Environmental, social,l and Governance (ESG).
Currently, ESTABLISHING This is one of the mostcommon industries in greenhouse gas emissions greenhouse (GHG) generate and consume more energy. In figures, urban areas, which represent 3% of the Earth’s surface, emit about 70% of GHG and consume almost 60% of the planet’s resources. For this reason, andto minimize the negative impact of our developments, at Metrovacesa we use life cycle analysis (LCA) as a tool to evaluate the environmental, structural,l and productive aspects of developments.
On the social side, the activity of our industry directly affects the development of communities and cities where we are in the entire value chain. A clear example of Metrovacesa’s social commitment is the recent creation of a Sustainable Urban Development (DUS) department, as a strategic commitment toimprovinge the urban environment to the cities of the future, where our projects constitute a unique opportunity to contribute to communities, through collaboration with different interest groups, from associations to citizens’ entities.Byh the purpose ofprovidinge greater transparency companies like Metrovacesa, must act by adopting the highest corporate governance practices and business ethics. This need has become, without a doubt, an opportunity to improve our relationship with the environment and develop a constructive dialogue.
the great ESG revolution in Metrovacesa is the materialization of his conviction and responsibility with the continuation of the generation of value with the development of a sustainable and responsible business model, based on continuous development, innovation,n and transparency.
