ESG Certification in the construction Industry

Published: Monday, 8 August, 2022

In April this year, AENOR presented the Sustainable Building Certification, “a new pioneering seal in the market and in the construction sector which, for the first time, takes into account ESG (environmental, social and governance) criteria”, explains the organization. 

This certification requires the incorporation in the construction of a minimum percentage of products manufactured under sustainability criteria. In addition, the impacts of the building will be assessed.

The purpose of the certification is to become an important instrument for the generation of trust among citizens, public administrations and investors because it responds to the needs of a context that is increasingly concerned about sustainability in all its dimensions.  

It contributes to the acceleration of the achievement of the Sustainable Development Goals of the 2030 Agenda and to social and industrial development, promoting, directly or indirectly, various social objectives such as job creation, gender equality, compliance with labor legislation, increased access to education and healthcare.
