Ferrovial has updated its strategy to reaffirm its focus on the development and operation of infrastructures.
A sector with 3.7 trillion-dollar investments required per year. A significant part of these investments will be channeled into transport infrastructure, including roads (0.9 trillion-dollar per year) and airports.
The infrastructure sector is experiencing a transformation driven by changes in demographics, social habits, technology, mobility and environmental concerns. This dynamic context presents opportunities for Ferrovial, as it impacts the way infrastructure will be designed, constructed and operated in the future.
In addition to the above-mentioned trends, the company also faces challenges such as: the evolution of regulatory frameworks and commercial, political and social tensions (in the countries where it operates), the increasing competition (both from infrastructure companies and from financial investors), and the transport decarbonization.
In Toll Roads, Ferrovial will continue developing greenfield projects, proactively generating pipeline in Managed Lanes, while maintaining its competitive advantages in standard traffic risk and availability projects.
In Airports, the company will leverage its expertise in development and operation, actively managing its portfolio and partnering to grow.
Ferrovial will reinforce its Construction presence where it is key to develop greenfield infrastructure projects. The core concessions markets for Ferrovial are USA, UK, Canada, Poland, Spain, Chile, Colombia and Peru, and the company will also invest selectively in other regions.
Additionally, Ferrovial will also explore new sustainable infrastructure related opportunities, such as electrification, mobility and water.
The company will implement a new operating model to become more agile, innovative and efficient. The new model maintains the emphasis on accountability, promotes entrepreneurship and collaboration, and increases the level of digitalization and automation. In order to implement this new of operating model, the company will simplify processes, create shared service centers and review non-personnel expenses.
Solutions for a low carbon environment and corporate social responsibility are at the core of Ferrovial’s strategy. The company is implementing a decarbonization roadmap and has also defined a CSR plan aligned with the UN Sustainable Development Goals. Ferrovial will continue to be proactively engaged with the sustainable development of its operations to maintain its presence in sustainability indexes such as the Dow Jones Sustainability, Carbon Disclosure Project and FTSE4Good among others.
