We support local communities by sponsoring projects aimed at improving the well-being of people and communities while maintaining their cultural identity, protecting the environment and local biodiversity, promoting sports and healthy habits, and supporting the coverage of basic needs. To do this, we have invested €3.5 million, spread over 75 projects and almost 441,000 beneficiaries.
We have developed projects to support families and social services, collaborating with various NGOs in collecting and donating resources to help disadvantaged people and alleviate precarious situations in vulnerable groups. Also in this area we have donated furniture and office supplies with an approximate value of about €23,000, in collaboration with a variety of social organisations.
In the last year, our commitment to promoting culture also continued, bringing it closer to all audiences. We facilitate access to culture through digital channels, as in the case of the Palau Digital project in collaboration with the Orfeó Català Foundation of the Palau de la Música in Barcelona.
We sponsor health and safety promotion projects and in 2019 invested around €285,000 and benefited more than 15,000 people.
We also provide for projects that promote the dissemination, conservation, research, recycling, regeneration and improvement of the environment in general and of biodiversity in particular for the conservation and improvement of the environment of communities. Initiatives such as Endesa Forest help to regenerate natural spaces. Or the recovery of the royal kite in the Balearic Islands, among the programmes for the protection of birdlife and other species.
