Biodiversity initiatives

Biodiversity is key for the balance of ecosystems and the services they provide, such as water regulation, CO2 sequestration, nutrient cycling or protection against erosion. The more diverse an ecosystem, the more stable and resilient to adverse events.

Environmental impact

We select adequate locations for our projects, seeking to minimize the environmental impact. We carry out exhaustive environmental impact assessments, define protection measures and establish monitoring programs that ensure the implementation. In response to the impacts we cannot avoid, we execute tailor-made compensation actions. Additionally, we have designed a biodiversity program beyond the area of our projects.
