Environmental strategy model

Environmental strategy model

MAPFRE implements its environmental actions as per the guidelines defined in the triple Integrated Environmental, Energy and Carbon Footprint Management System, designed in accordance with ISO 14001, ISO 50001 and ISO 14064 international standards. This is the common framework for managing environmental and energy aspects as well as greenhouse gas emissions.

This model allows MAPFRE to objectively advance along the continuous improvement process required by the System and verified by external certification audits, with the following phases:

  • Development of platform for carbon footprint calculations.
  • Calculation of corporate carbon footprint.
  • Preparation of greenhouse gas emissions report.
  • Internal audit.
  • Verification of the GHG calculations and report.

  • Initial energy review. 
  • Assessment of energy use, energy baseline and energy performance indicators.
  • Historical consumption control.
  • Verification of internal network analyzers.
  • Energy program with defined objectives and consumption forecasts.
  • Identification and Legal Requirements Assessment Registry.
  • Implementation of corporate procedures.
  • Internal audit.
  • Certification audit.
  • Periodical audits and certification renewals.

The consolidation of the Integrated System and its progress over the years ensures success of the triple management system operations. Its transversal design and the global nature of its corporate processes enables a faster, more efficient implementation of this system in all Group activities across the different countries in which we operate.

The strategic context is analyzed before the countries are selected and the environmental actions are launched, since a comprehensive risk analysis is required to guarantee the success of the project and its future progress.

The global strategy framework and model for the company's initiatives with regard to Security and the Environment are included in the Group's Security and Environment Master Plan. It is adapted to the MAPFRE's business and organizational development, taking into account the socio-economic circumstances and changing threats, as well as the legal requirements in the countries in which the company operates.

The Central Structure (Corporate Security and Environment Division) is also responsible for corporate governance in these matters, assuming strategic planning at the corporate level and supervising and controlling the security and environmental management in the different corporate areas, centralized Business Units, regions and local companies. The main characteristic of this structure is to provide service to the group of companies that make up the MAPFRE Group.

A Peripheral Structure is established under functional dependency of the Central Structure, which complements the centralized corporate activity and makes it possible to adapt corporate models to specific local requirements and problems.

In addition, it promotes, adapts, coordinates, and where appropriate, executes the implementation of security and environmental management measures, within the scope of its responsibilities, identifying the specific needs in its respective fields of action, verifying the security levels and the appropriate environmental management, monitoring compliance with specific legislation, acting as a link with authorities, and ensuring the continuous improvement of the process.
