Indra maintains its commitment to the fight against climate change and in favor of sustainable development as the main value in its policy of respect for the environment.
This has been boosted by the implementation and certification of the Environmental and Energy Management System for our facilities and our emission reduction strategy, which materialize through Policies that ensure compliance with the increasingly demanding environmental requirements of our clients and stakeholders.
Environmental and Energy Management System
Indra's Environmental Management System is certified under ISO 14001. If was first implemented in early 2000 and has since been extended to a wide variety of centers in different geographical areas.
The system focuses on the following basic parameters:
- To raise awareness of the environment in the organization to achieve the practical implementation of the environmental principles in Indra's projects and areas.
- To guarantee that both the organization and Indra suppliers apply the environmental requirements defined by the company, including all legal and customer aspects, thereby ensuring that our operations respect the environment.
- To promote and lead the way regarding the adoption of environmental standards, regulations and best practices as a tool for improving sustainability.
Moreover, as part of Corporate Social Responsibility and in accordance with our Environmental Management System, Indra has decided to join Regulation (CE) number 1221/2009 of the European Parliament on voluntary participation of organizations in a Community environmental management and audit system (EMAS III - Environmental Management Audit Scheme).
At the end of 2016, the certification of the Energy Management System is renewed at the headquarters, Arroyo de la Vega, certified according to ISO 50001 standard. Since 2015 this center also maintains the LEED Gold Certification.
Climate Change Strategy
We are committed to reducing our CO2 emissions
In 2010 Indra set its first annual global CO2 emissions reduction target.
Every year since then the company has managed to significantly reduce the tons of CO2 generated per member of staff by implementing energy efficiency measures in all of its facilities, which have helped reduce energy consumption and, therefore, the organization's carbon footprint.
According to the data published in the Annual Report, during the year 2015 Indra has reduced its electricity consumption by 5.6 million kwh, representing a decrease of 5.5% per employee.
The initiatives currently underway to reduce CO2 emissions aim to bring about improvements in building heating and lighting and the efficient use of office equipment, all within a global framework of energy efficiency.
Our emissions reduction target is in line with European climate change policy, placing it within a longer-term strategy for the period 2014-2020. During this time, we estimate that we will be able to cut our emissions by more than 25% in relation to the figures published in 2013.
Emission reductions will be charted annually and the results will be published every year in the Annual Report, available for consultation on this website.
Indra is committed to responsible corporate engagement in climate policy and to transparent and accountable reporting of climate change through the engagement with the Responsible Corporate Engagement and Climate Change Reporting initiatives of CDP.
At the end of 2015, 57% of Indra professionals worked at the 38 centers certified under ISO 14001.
