In the construction sector, the measurement of the absolute value by weight of generated non-hazardous waste is not the most adequate indicator for judging the environmental performance of the Company in this respect. It should be noted, among other examples, that the same amount of waste is not generated in civil engineering that in building per unit of production.
Moreover, it is common that within the building sector various situations are given that can cause non-comparability of the data obtained, as is the case of works covering a demolition.
To make them comparable year to year, the following data related to the activity of Acciona Construcción refer to the evolution in a percentage of the treatment of waste management.
ACCIONA takes the necessary measures to prevent, control and minimise the generation of hazardous waste, through verification systems by legal requirements. It also has incident information systems and plans to minimise the risks of accidental discharges.
