Second ASECAP Sustainability Forum coming to Vienna

Mar 27, 2023

This year´s ASECAP Forum is embedded into the 4th International Symposium on Freeway and Tollway Operations (ISFO 2023) and will take place on June 29, 2023, in Vienna/Austria

Sustainable organizations create long term value for all the stakeholders involved, through a continuous process of improvement, in which organizations incorporate social, environmental, charity, ethical and economic considerations into their overall management in a voluntary, systematic and coherent way. In the context of sustainability, companies are no longer evaluated only from an economic perspective, but also from a societal, environmental, ethical and philanthropic one. Consultation with the company's stakeholders is an integral part of this process. Sustainability is based on a range of tools - norms, standards and labels - which make it possible to measure the authenticity of these practices and their added value, and to maximize their effects for both the company and society.

Toll road operators recognize the importance of their responsibility to promote sustainable development and observe the universally accepted standards on environment, human rights and transparency. In a globalized world corporate social responsibility is increasingly becoming a fundamental parameter for customers and stakeholders.

Corporate responsibility means compliance with relevant national and international laws and regulations. But it goes further to cover social and sustainable efforts in the fields of business ethics and strategy. For toll road operators this means strengthening their focus on safety, environmental protection and long-term sustainable development.

The Second ASECAP Sustainability forum will address following issues:

What are the credible plan, vision to deploy? How to reach the sustainability aims, like net zero emissions in Scope 1, 2 and 3, and to ensure the resilience of the road infrastructure? How to make our infrastructure ready for the new challenges? What kind of investments are needed? How to finance them? How to approach the EU Taxonomy? Which sectoral activities should be considered as taxonomy eligible and which as taxonomy aligned?

The motorway operators will also present their view, plan, vision for a sustainable road transport infrastructure including the deployment of alternative fuel infrstructure aligned with the political goals to reach carbon-free mobility.

The event is organized in cooperation with ASFINAG, host of the conference.
