Lantania wins bronze medal in EcoVadis sustainability rating

  • The rating agency ranks the company among the top 18% of companies with the best environmental score in its sector

Madrid, 8 November 2023. Lantania is making progress in its commitment as a socially responsible company by participating for the first time in the EcoVadis sustainability rating. The infrastructure, water and energy Group was awarded the bronze medal by the international sustainability rating platform.

The rating agency assessed Lantania’s environmental, social and governance (ESG) performance. The assessment focused on 21 sustainability criteria grouped into four areas: environment, labour practices and human rights, and ethics and sustainable sourcing. In particular, EcoVadis recognised Lantania’s environmental compliance, placing it in the top 18% of road and rail construction companies in this area.

This result supports the Group’s commitment to building a more sustainable future. Lantania strives to improve its sustainability performance every day, with initiatives such as the commitment to respecting human rights in social and governance matters and, in regard to environmental matters, the implementation of a digital platform for the efficient management of its waste. This award is a recognition of the company’s initiatives, but above all, it is an incentive to continue improving its ESG performance.

The EcoVadis bronze medal adds to the certificates already obtained by the company, such as ISO 9001:2015 in Quality Management, ISO 14001:2015 in Environmental Management, ISO 45001:2018 in Occupational Health and Safety Management and the standard accrediting the company’s Energy Management system, ISO 50001:2018.

EcoVadis’ ratings are based on a number of international standards, such as the Global Reporting Initiative (GRI) guidelines and the ISO 26000 standard, which set out principles and practices for corporate sustainability. The rating agency has assessed more than 100,000 companies in over 175 countries, and its ratings are used by investors, financial analysts and other stakeholders in their decision-making.
