We understand social responsibility as the set of actions or obligations not typified by a legal system, which we nevertheless voluntarily accept with binding force, due to the conviction that failure to comply with them implies the infringement of the norm of culture. In other words, it is the way in which we responsibly manage our company.
Our social responsibility will be characterised by an ethical relationship with our stakeholders, as these actions have a positive impact on society through the principles and values by which our company is governed.
For this reason, we have integrated the guidelines recommended by the ISO 26001 reference standard for Corporate Social Responsibility into our management model.
The culture of social responsibility that underpins our company’s purpose includes respect for the human rights set out in the Sustainable Development Goals of the UN 2030 Agenda and formalises our commitment to the human rights recognised in national and international law.
Our commitment has been developed taking into account international standards and independent expert advice.
The overarching principles that have been used to make our human rights commitment have been as follows:
> UN Guiding Principles on Business and Human Rights
> OECD Guidelines for Multinational Enterprises
> UN Global Compact
> ILO Conventions (including Convention 169)
> SDGs (Agenda 2030)
To monitor this commitment, we rely on the following elements of governance for the sustainability of the company:
The company’s Code of Conduct
Each of the social commitments made in matters related to human rights, including policies on occupational health and safety, the environment, equal opportunities and quality, which address the needs and expectations of our stakeholders.
The guarantee that the right to personal data protection of all our individuals is complied with, ensuring privacy in the processing of the different types of personal data.
