were ratifed by the Executives of the com-
panies attending the event, including Fran-
cisco Esteban Lefer, Manager of FCC
Construcción’s Department of Innovation

After reaching this milestone, ENCORD
member companies, including FCC; will

set of measures that will be submitted, jo-
intly with their experiences in this respect,
before an audience of 2,000 participants at
the World Sustainable Building Conference
to be held in Helsinki in 2011.

corruption, the wager for talent, and cons-
tant innovation.

lopment and innovation in the construc-
tion sector make a signifcant contribution

cordance with the principles set out in the
Charger through its activities and to share
practical experiences so as to improve the
quality of the construction activity and crea-
te added value in the community.
