We have seen significant improvements in our highways’ ESG indicators, including road safety and workplace safety. For road safety, CBN achieved a 21% drop in accidents per km between 2016 and 2020. The improvement in accidents is also visible when we look at the total number of accidents, which fell 15%. We highlight a 10% drop in accidents per km and the total number of accidents in 2020, which was the year we acquired the concessionaire’s operation. We see even stronger improvements for CRA.
