Cellnex Telecom receives the “Best Newcomer Spain” award in the CDP Spain Climate Leadership Awards
Leading position in the 2016 edition of the climate change programme
Barcelona, October 25th 2016. Cellnex Telecom has received the Best Newcomer Spain award in the 2016 Climate Leadership Awards, organised by the CDP (Carbon Disclosure Project) after delivering and publishing its Climate Change 2016 report.
In a ceremony held in Madrid to present the results of the Iberia sample (which includes companies in Spain and Portugal) and to award companies that have excelled in their efforts to deal with climate change, the prize was collected by the manager of the Cellnex Telecom Management System, Àngels Ucero, who acknowledged the significance of the prize “as a reward for our effort and for a job well done. We are flattered to receive this award, which spurs on in our continual efforts to work towards improving our policy of environmental respect and protection.”
CDP is one of the most highly recognised organisations for its work on climate change, which seeks to assess the quality of – and systems for reporting – the information provided by private companies or by the public sector in the sustainability and environment area.
Cellnex Telecom performs exhaustive checks on the various vectors/aspects that make up the group’s environmental management and runs a continuous improvement policy allowing it to develop environmental measures. A good example is the introduction of Clean CO2 software, which makes it possible to calculate and to compensate for both the corporate carbon footprint of the Group’s companies and that of the services offered to their customers.
Cellnex Telecom was created in April 2015 with a project imbued with the ambition to be the European leader in the provision of telecommunications infrastructure and connectivity solutions. As an independent listed group, the company has undertaken from the outset to deploy policies and practices that embody a management style strictly committed to the objectives of transparency and compliance with, and attention to, the ethical principles of integrity, honesty, respect for diversity, integrity and equal opportunities and respect for the environment.
To this end, the company has rolled out a set of policies, including Corporate Responsibility, to ensure that Cellnex Telecom properly complies with the obligations of any company, especially as a listed company.
Cellnex Telecom has an environmental policy based on respect for the environment and the protection and conservation of biodiversity, through the efficient use of resources and promoting preventive actions, encompassed within its Corporate Responsibility framework.
This policy involves taking measures to prevent pollution and reduce the environmental impact of the company’s activities and facilities; it is the responsibility of everyone in the Cellnex team.
