In all the projects in which it participates, SOMAFEL incorporates the Environmental aspects in the planning and decision making processes in the construction, refurbishment and maintenance of rail infrastructure. We identify the actions to address the risks and opportunities, establishing the practices that will result in the elimination or minimization of possible environmental impacts.


The results achieved in terms of environmental protection are obtained through the qualification and engagement of all those who collaborate with us, as well as of the local communities of the sites where we work.

SOMAFEL also has its Environmental System certified since 2005, and has made subsequent upgrades to keep up with applicable rules and legislation.

In addition to this, and following the supplier qualification process required in the United Kingdom by the Infrastructure managers Network Rail and TfL – Transport for London for the direct procurement, SOMAFEL also obtained the certification of its RISQS system, which embodies the Environment system, accordingly to the qualification scheme in place.
