Start of main content


Isolux Corsán aspires to take maximum care of nature and to prevent pollution in all its activities and in all the areas in which it operates. For this purpose it applies a Corporate Environmental Management System in its everyday business, which is implemented in accordance with the international ISO 14001 standard.

The Corporate Environmental Management System is applied by Isolux Corsán in all its business areas and in all the countries in which it operates. The objective is to prevent pollution and show maximum respect and care for the natural environment. In its Environmental Policy, the key document within the Corporate Environmental Management System, the Group undertakes to: Develop and implement environmental management systems that comply with the principles established in the international ISO 140001 standard.

  • Develop and implement Environmental Management systems in its activities in compliance with the principles established in the international ISO 14001 standard
  • Establish and monitor compliance with environmental goals and targets in keeping with this policy.
  • Ensure that these objectives and goals contribute to increasing the good performance and the efficacy of the environmental management system.
  • Apply practices to prevent and reduce pollution, minimising the most significant negative environmental impacts.
  • Comply with applicable environmental legislation and other requirements to which the company has signed up.
  • Periodically review this policy to keep it in line with the senior management's vision and strategic objectives and the needs detected at any time in the social and natural environments in which it operates.
  • The organisation makes this environmental policy transparent and public. It ensures that all its in-house staff and those of companies working for and with them know that it is available.

In accordance with this work methodology, Isolux Corsán identifies the environmental aspects associated with its activity and evaluates them objectively, applying standardised metrics for all the business areas and all the countries. This enables the company to establish the degree of environmental impact of each intervention in order to determine the need to establish controls and measures to eliminate or minimise their impact on the environment. The group classifies the environmental impacts associated to its activity under the following categories:

  • Accidents.
  • Water impacts.
  • Socio-economic impact.
  • Consumption of natural resources of products.
  • Soil damage.
  • Noise emissions.
  • Atmospheric emissions      
  • Generation of inert waste
  • Generation of hazardous waste
  • Generation of urban waste
  • Incidents
  • Use of raw materials

The company considers environmental training and the dissemination of good environmental practices to be essential in order to reduce or eliminate the possible impact generated by its activity. Isolux Corsán therefore carries out continuous training and awareness sessions, for both its own staff and for subcontracted companies. These sessions inform on good environmental practices relating to: correct segregation and storage of waste, protection of animal and vegetable species, reduction of emissions, protection of the land and riverbeds, as well as respect for the socio-economic and cultural environment of each project. These training and awareness sessions are carried out by the team of Environment Coordinators in their regular visits to the projects being carried out.

Isolux Corsán’s objective is to implement this Corporate Environmental Management System in all the countries in which it already has a stable presence in in all new large international projects.
