The Corporate Social Responsibility is a commitment that we have been promoting for many years with different organizations in order to benefit society with our corporate actions.
Our involvement is guided by Respon.cat, an organism committed to CSR that wants to involve companies and organizations sensitized to social responsibility. Its objective is “to promote a qualitative and quantitative improvement “of CSR in Catalonia as a “strategic and cultural factor of companies”. In this meeting space, organizations seek collaboration between companies to generate an optimal CSR in each of the sectors in which we are working to develop social projects that are as ideal as possible for society and Catalan reality.
Once the interest groups have been identified where applying Social Responsibility, affecting workers, customers, suppliers, the sector or society as a whole, we can develop policies that provide value in different areas. For example, as Martina explains, accountable for the RSC strategy of Amat, “it is now an ideal time to take advantage of Amat’s generational replacement to adopt a new model of leadership adapted to the new way of understanding reality (economic, social, political, etc.) of today. ”
