Aldesa adds a new milestone in sustainability after succeeding in placing one of its concessions in Mexico in the first position, according to the GRESB 2022 Sustainability Index, of road infrastructure projects in Latin America. With a score of 96 out of 100, Concesionaria de Autopistas del Sureste (CAS) has obtained the “GRESB 5 Stars” distinction, as well as ranking fourth worldwide in the transportation projects category.
This distinction reflects the organization’s desire to continue developing its activity in a responsible manner, promoting projects that contribute to the well-being of society and care for the environment. The voluntary participation in the GRESB (Global Real Estate Sustainability Benchmark) certification is also a sign of its commitment to transparency in sustainability, as it is a reference framework for the comparison and evaluation of environmental, social and corporate governance (ESG) factors.
Aldesa, a reference shareholder of CAS, is responsible for the operation and maintenance of the Tuxtla Gutiérrez-San Cristóbal (46.5 km) and Arriaga-Ocozocoautla (93 km) toll highways in the State of Chiapas (Mexico). These are two of the main roads that provide the backbone of the territory in which, in 2021 alone, more than 11.6 million tolls were recorded. The company has experienced significant growth in the concession area in recent years. In 2021, it won its first contract in Chile for the provision of operation, maintenance of toll and intelligent systems and user services for the 195-kilometer Ruta 5 Talca-Chillán highway.
CAS has been awarded the GRESB Infrastructure certification with 96 points out of 100.
