United Nations Global Compact

United Nations Global Compact

We were one of the first Spanish companies to adhere to the United Nations Global Compact. We did so in 2002, thus incorporating the principles of this compact into our corporate integrity procedures and sustainability policies and strategies.

The United Nations Global Compact establishes 10 universal principles to promote corporate social responsibility.
