The awards were handed out during the Integra Foundation's annual celebration, which was officiated by Ana Botella, president of the foundation. Luis Suárez, head of HR of the Environmental Services Area, represented FCC and collected the award.

FCC currently has a collaboration agreement with the Integra Foundation to train and place people who are at risk of social exclusion into work. It also has agreements with other organisations, such as the Adecco Foundation,  the ONCE (Spanish association for visually impaired people) or the Down Madrid Foundation, with which it has formalised an agreement to foster different actions that improve the quality of life of people with Down syndrome or with other intellectual disabilities.

The Equality and Diversity team of FCC works tirelessly on integrating this collective into the labour market and gets involved in the concerns of the communities in which the Citizen Services Group operates. Some of the benefiting collectives are female victims of gender-based violence, people with disabilities, and women in situations of social exclusion and/or trafficking.

Furthermore, in line with its Equality and Diversity policy, FCC fosters and drives actions aimed at favouring equality and implements working practices to ensure that no member of staff is treated unfavourably for having different abilities or for any other unjustified reason that is not based on professional skills, knowledge and performance.

FCC has also signed up to the "Women's Empowerment Principles", which form part of the United Nations Global Compact, and for the Diversity Charter. This strengthens its equality, diversity and antidiscrimination principles and fosters the inclusion and reconciliation measures, while remaining in line with the FCC Quality and Diversity Policy and the Code of Ethics, which have both been approved by the Board of Directors.

All of the Equality Plans of the Citizen Services Group include a specific chapter on raising awareness of the fight against gender-based violence, with measures which reaffirm the company's commitment to integrating victims into work. FCC is devoted to training and informing, facilitating channels to lodge reports, and disseminating by all available means its commitment to abolishing gender-based violence.

Furthermore, FCC signed a Collaboration Agreement with the Ministry of Health, Social Services and Equality in 2010 to promote awareness of gender-based violence and the integration of victims into the labour market. Since 2012, FCC has formed part of the Company Network for a Society Free from Gender-Based Violence. It has formalised several agreements with specialised organisations to integrate these women into the labour market and has joined different campaigns launched by national and international institutions.
