Environmental monitoring of companies

Barcelona-El Prat airport maintains environmental surveillance over all the activities carried out by external companies

Apart from the activities carried out by Aena (controlled via the airport's Environmental Management System), Barcelona-El Prat airport maintains environmental surveillance over all the activities carried out by external companies (contractors and concession holders).

This surveillance is carried out via the Environmental Watch Plan (EWP), which is the documental instrument that all companies must fill in prior to commencing their activities; it contains all the environmental effects (that is, description of all the environmental aspects, such as waste generation, discharges, product storage, equipment and vehicle maintenance protocols, atmospheric emissions, noise generation, effect on ecosystems, or consumption of resources, among other aspects).

The results of the environmental surveillance are included in a monitoring report that includes information on the environmental behaviour of the company and the request, if appropriate, for corrective, preventive and/or environmental improvement measures.
