The OHLA Sustainability Plan, which will remain in effect until 2024, applies to all its business lines and geographies.
The Plan envisages three strategic priorities – Sustainable Business, Responsible Management and Social Progress – around which 21 challenges and 40 lines of action and annual objectives have been coordinated.
OHLA has launched its 2022-2024 Sustainability Plan within the framework of its Sustainability Policy and the SDGs of the United Nations 2030 Agenda. The company has thus strengthened its commitment to contribute to progress through infrastructures with a positive impact on society.
The 2022-2024 Sustainability Plan, which has been released after consultation with stakeholders, is based on three strategic priorities -Sustainable Business, Responsible Management and Social Progress- and includes 21 challenges and 40 lines of action and annual objectives through which the company has made sustainability the cornerstone of its business.
Net Zero 2030-2050
The infrastructure sector has a key role to play in the transition towards a more sustainable world and accordingly OHLA is committed to continuing to contribute to the progress of society by building a business that includes practices aimed at combating climate change.
In the Sustainable Business area, therefore, the company’s main lines of action will focus on promoting the progressive decarbonisation of its activity – Net Zero 2030-2050 and the reduction of emission intensity by 40% in 2024 -; the application of circular economy criteria in its projects, with the recycling or reuse of more than 80% of non-hazardous waste; the development of good biodiversity practices, and the encouragement of sustainable construction practices and techniques.
This will be accompanied by the promotion and implementation of innovation and transformation projects with ESG (Environmental, Social, and Governance) indicators as the main tool for achieving business sustainability.
Building transparent, solid and trusting relationships
Responsible Management and Social Progress are the remaining strategic pillars of the Sustainability Plan. To this end, the company will incorporate ESG criteria in the management team’s variable remuneration, in addition to a clear commitment to transparency and good governance, and continued compliance with the standards laid down in the United Nations 2030 Agenda.
With regard to Social Progress, OHLA will promote equal opportunities, implementing new working methods that allow employees to develop both personally and professionally, and fomenting alliances to bring about real and visible changes in society, among other matters.
