FCC receives KPMG-El Confidencial award for Business Best Practices

The project is both profitable and environmentally beneficial for the steel industry, the construction industry and society as a whole since it is replicable and reproducible at electric furnaces worldwide.

Recovering black slag also rationalizes steel production costs, minimises waste production and recovers scrap metal that can be reused as raw material, and it transforms slag into a product that can be used as aggregate for concrete and other purposes such as road surfacing, airport runways, etc.

Juan Béjar, Vice-Chairman and CEO, collected the award from John Scott, Chairman of KPMG in Spain. Also present on behalf of FCC were Aurelio Blasco, General Manager of FCC Ámbito, and Guadalupe Bobadilla, Head of Safety, Quality and the Environment at FCC Ámbito.

The event was attended by Jaime García Legaz, Spain's Secretary of State for Foreign Trade. Other prize-winners included Seur (also in the Eco-efficiency category), Iberdrola, Computer Global Software and Zeltia (for Innovation), Mapfre, Imabe Ibérica and Tui Travel (in the Internationalization category), Room Mate Hoteles, KFC Spain and Telecoming Group (for Job Creation), and Rastreator, Egovolo.com and The Brubaker (Digitalisation).
