Sacyr adopts corporate responsibility practices for Biodiversity in Peru
  • Sacyr adopts corporate responsibility practices for Biodiversity in Peru


    Sacyr Engineering and Infrastructure, in order to protect biodiversity, has carried out a conservation project on the plant species located in the project site of the Andrés Avelino Cáceres Sports Complex of Villa María del Triunfo, Lima, for the 2019 Pan American and Parapan American Games.

    The aim of this project is to guarantee the survival of all the specimens that were found in the work area and to increase the area of plant cover with creeping plants. 

    In this environmental project, over 800 specimens belonging to more than 20 different species found in the area were relocated in a nursery, for their care and conservation, being able to duplicate the number of specimens a few months later, until more than 1,600 specimens were obtained, which have been integrated into the landscaping of the sports complex.

    Simultaneously, we have been working on the propagation of creeping plants in the sandy areas of the project where there was no vegetation cover, since they are able to fully cover the ground in an abundant way through cuttings of mother plants. The results that are being obtained are equally successful, having revegetated 1,322 m² presently and with an estimated 2,800 m² to be reached. It is important to stress that creeping plants require little maintenance and a minimum amount of water to survive, therefore they are used as an alternative to traditional turf.

    With this species protection environmental alternative, Sacyr contributes to achieving Goal 15 of the Sustainable Development Goals (SDG) of the UN, by adopting significant measures that reduce the effect on natural habitats, avoid the loss of biological diversity and protect threatened species. And Goal 12 by adopting responsible production and consumption measures, by promoting the efficient use of water.
