Company achieves the highest possible rating with “AAA”.


HOCHTIEF has received the “AAA” rating from Morgan Stanley Capital International (MSCI). “AAA” is the highest possible score and is awarded to companies that demonstrate exemplary management of ESG risks. HOCHTIEF has achieved the second highest rating of “AA” for the last seven years in a row and has now improved to the highest level.

“The award is a great success for HOCHTIEF. We are proud that our ongoing global commitment to sustainability is rewarded in this way. Our entire workforce is committed to promoting our ESG standards worldwide,” says HOCHTIEF CEO Juan Santamaría Cases.

HOCHTIEF is listed in other globally respected ESG-ratings, including the Dow Jones Sustainability World Index by Standard & Poors (S&P Global). EcoVadis also awarded HOCHTIEF the Platinum Medal in 2023.

HOCHTIEF strives to expand environmental, social and governance (ESG) issues further and has implemented its Group-wide Sustainability Plan 2025. One of the Group’s key goals is to achieve climate neutrality (“Net Zero”) by 2045. To this end, a comprehensive catalogue has been developed to reduce greenhouse gases.
