FCC Medio Ambiente has been the first company in the environmental services industry to join the Network of Companies for Diversity and LGBTI Inclusion (REDI, for its acronym in Spanish), and today the company held a celebration ceremony.

Ízaro Assa de Amilibia then pointed out that FCC Medio Ambiente is the first company in the environmental sector to join the association and she was excited to have the company in REDI’s ranks. She added that the two organisations will go down together through unexplored and highly beneficial paths for the people who work in both entities.

Closing the event, Luis Suárez expressed FCC Medio ambientes’ commitment to encouraging an inclusive environment. The company is aware of the work that is still to be done in this area but, step by step, with the support and collaboration of organisations such as REDI, discrimination can be successfully tackled and addressed.
