FCC consolidates its position in the Dow Jones Sustainability World Index

FCC has been included in the Dow Jones Sustainability Indices (DJSI), specifically the DJSI World and DJSI Stoxx, for the second consecutive year.

In 2009, FCC obtained the best score in the economic dimension and topped the list in 7 of the 19 criteria evaluated: Risk and crisis management; Codes of conduct/compliance/corruption and bribery; Non-financial project evaluation; Environmental reporting; Transport and Logistics; Labour practice indicators and Talent attraction and retention.

Once again, the company has been recognised for its unwavering commitment to corporate responsibility, sustainability and leading international standards, particularly the Ten Principles of the United Nations Global Compact.

The company's most noteworthy accomplishments in the area of corporate responsibility include approval of the 2nd Corporate Social Responsibility Master Plan 2009-2010 after having achieved 90% of the goals set out in the first Plan.

In response to the commitment assumed to respect and support the protection of fundamental rights, the Group's Management Committee approved the inclusion, in the contracts that FCC signs with suppliers and subcontractors, of a clause establishing an obligation to fulfil and respect the Ten Principles of the United Nations Global Compact and to be aware of the content of the Group's Code of Ethics.

FCC has also made headway in environmental initiatives by creating an Energy Division and obtaining Board approval for the Group's Environmental Policy.

The Dow Jones Sustainability Index includes more than 300 companies from 24 countries; members are selected on the basis of their commitment to sustainable growth and shareholder value creation in compliance with strict economic, social and environmental criteria.

Companies are assessed on the basis of: corporate governance, risk management, codes of conduct and anti-corruption, environmental criteria, human capital development, talent attraction and retention, philanthropy, and social reporting, among others.
