Natural capital and biodiversity

  • To respect the natural capital, biodiversity and cultural heritage of the environments in which the group operates.
  • To advance towards no net loss of biodiversity, with a preventive approach (impact mitigation hierarchy), implementing best practices and encouraging the creation of natural capital.

Biodiversity initiatives

Natural capital and biodiversity have become strategic pillars of our environmental management, which is based on improving our impact on ecosystems through emissions reduction, resource consumption and waste production, as well as on carrying out direct biodiversity-related actions.

Biodiversity indicators

We measure the most relevant biodiversity indicators to understand and reduce our impacts in all the geographies in which we operate.



The creation of Lake Meirama in the valley of As Encobras, Cerceda (A Coruña) is one of the largest environmental restoration projects undertaken in Spain. The transformation of the former open-cast lignite mine into a man-made lake has created a large protected space, rich in biodiversity, which will increase the area's economic and tourism development. Lake Meirama is the world’s first artificial lake that could be used as a water reservoir for a large population, thanks to its high water quality.
In May 2020, the environmental rehabilitation project culminated with the transfer of Lake Meirama to the Public Hydraulic Domain.
