Activities by year

2021 was yet another year in which we enthusiastically continued to give the very best of Globalvia to the over 250 million users who place their trust in us through our daily work. Although the global situation of uncertainty we are immersed in has brought challenges in many aspects, our essence, namely Commitment, Excellence, Solutions and Passion, the things that make us who we are, meant we were able to continue making progress and reach new milestones, always through the work and huge efforts of a team of 2,000 professionals in the countries where we operated globally over the last 12 months.

It was a year in which we added Autopista Vespucio Norte and Túnel de San Cristóbal to our portfolio, thus consolidating our presence in Chile in line with our long-term international growth strategy. At the same time, we successfully completed the disinvestment transaction in the Company AUNETI – Autovía Nuevo Necaxa Tihuatlán – in Mexico.

We have also made further progress in the development of disruptive projects through Openvia, our innovation and technology platform, with the aim of improving our users’ experience, and we have as well given a boost to our commitment to the mobility of the future by embarking into the world of Urban Air Mobility, hand in hand with EHang, the world's leading company in autonomous aerial vehicle technology platforms (AAV). Through this alliance we seek to accelerate the study and joint prospecting of services and solutions in this area, with special attention to logistics and passenger transport services, both urban and long-distance, public and private. In this way, we promote new sustainable and environmentally friendly air mobility solutions.

To this alliance, we have also added our investment of €3M in the Spanish startup Meep, specialized in the development of solutions of mobility as a service (MaaS), thus marking a milestone within our Company, as it is the first investment we make in a startup. Through Meep Sevilla by Globalvia, our MaaS platform, we are committed to combining the planning of multimodal trips (subway, bus, electric scooters, bicycles, taxi, among others) and click-through payment in a single app, thus promoting a more connected and sustainable mobility, focused on improving the experience of our users.

In addition to these projects, during 2021 we have deployed the second phase as well of Tap&Go, Metro de Sevilla contactless validation and payment system, which has made our railway asset the first metro in Spain to count with an intelligent postpayment system, allowing users to make a single payment at the end of the month based on the trips they have made and applying the best available rate.

In terms of sustainability, we have also reached new achievements and, in addition to being named leaders according to the international GRESB index for the third year on the run, we are very proud to have become carbon neutral in 9 companies of our main business lines, including all our railways, and in our Corporate Offices in Spain and Chile. This is undoubtedly a great step forward in our #ourwaytozero challenge, an objective that is defined in our Strategic Sustainability Plan, Sustaimobility 2024, which also came about during 2021. This comprises a roadmap that places climate action, user-centric mobility, social commitment and good governance, as strategic pillars for everybody who is part of Globalvia.
