    Environmental aspect: elements of company activities, products or services that may intermingle with the environment.
    Direct environmental aspect: aspect related to the activities, products and services of a company upon which it exerts direct management control.
    Indirect environmental aspect: aspect related to the activities, products and services of a company upon which it does not exert direct management control but it may influence in a reasonable way.
    Environmental impact: any favourable or unfavourable change of the environment, as total or partial result of the environmental aspects of a company.
    INCOGA has identified all environmental aspects related to our activities and services; those directly related to our administrative and commercial work (direct aspects), those related to the activities of our providers and subcontractors (indirect aspects) and those related to the lifetime of services we provide (indirect aspects). At the same time we have identified the environmental aspects related to possible emergency situations. All identified aspects are assessed as to determine the significant ones.
    The environmental aspects of INCOGA are presented in the table below and their control indicators. Due to the new measuring system we do not have records as to present the values of the presented indicators. The first results of these indicators shall be included in the equivalent report of 2018.

The indirect environmental aspects identified are as follow:

INCOGA has also a Harmful and Non-harmful Wastes Register.

INCOGA is also registered in the General Register of Wastes Producers and Management of Galicia as small producer of harmful wastes. The wastes recorded are the following:

    INCOGA conducts a yearly assessment of the environmental performance and by means of this assessment determines the measures to control the environmental aspects of the activities performed. Some of these measures convert into environmental objectives.
    As concerning the method of managing the harmful wastes our works generate, one of these three situations applies: customer management, self-management and our subcontractors’ management.
    Although in our providers and subcontractors’ homologation process we ask them to comply with some working guidelines and environmental requirements in relation to our works, when wastes management is not performed by our customer, as to achieve a better control and management of the harmful wastes generated, we opt for self-management to the possible extent. In this case, before starting the works, we conduct an assessment of the wastes to be generated, in order to have a suitable “clear point” as to obtain a correct segregation.
    In consideration of the aforementioned, INCOGA’s objective for 2018 is the following:
