Since 2005, the promotion of corporate volunteering actions has been one of the Company’s cornerstones, the result of the firm commitment to improving society that has allowed us to channel the spirit of solidarity and address the social concerns of our employees.
In 2017, we designed a corporate volunteering model that seeks to respond to the socio-environmental needs and general interests of the territories in which are facilities are located, showcasing corporate values through the voluntary participation of employees. Based on this, corporate volunteering programmes must be aligned with the 2030 Sustainability Commitment taken on by the Company and contribute to achieving the Sustainable Development Goals, meeting the needs of society.
In 2021 the model was updated. The corporate volunteering model has a strategic and transformational focus, so that the actions deployed aim, on the one hand, to channel internal talent to the corporate volunteering service and, on the other, to provide innovative solutions to social and environmental problems.
