At OHL we follow the guidelines and recommendations issued by leading institutions and authorities on the matter: United Nations (UN), International Labour Organization (ILO) and Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development.
We belong to the United Nations Global Compact since 2004 and are a founding member of its Spanish Network. Since then, we have been working to promote and disseminate its Ten Principles. We also follow the Guiding Principles on Business and Human Rights, approved in 2011, which establish that all enterprises are responsible for upholding human rights.
Furthermore, we belong to the FTSE4Good stock exchange index since 2008, which brings together listed companies that meet the necessary requirements on responsible investment.
Our voluntary commitments acquired in the fields of business ethics, human and labor rights, environmental protection and transparency in the distribution of information have generated ten corporate policies, making up our own action framework and business model, which include sustainability criteria in business management.
OHL has undertaken sustainability as a cross-strategy to create shared value, continuously and in the long term, to ensure that its business management is sustainable and responsible, allowing the company to align itself with its surroundings, to proactively face any challenges, and to generate trust and commitment amongst its stakeholders, responding to their needs.
Governance in sustainability matters is led by the senior governing body, the Appointments & Remuneration Committee of OHL’s Board of Directors.
Furthermore, we follow the roadmap established in the 2030 Global Agenda, promoted by the UN, incorporating Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) aligned with the company’s various areas of activity.
