Corporate Social Responsibility
All staff at Baleària is committed to corporate social responsibility. We support sustainable development whilst working towards the creation of added value by responding to the economic, environmental and social needs and desires of our interest groups.
We have a Business Code of Conduct and Ethics that states the company’s formal commitment with trustworthy, responsible and respectful behaviour towards the various target groups. This Code is intended for all those people linked to any company within the Baleària Group. It is based on the company’s activity, views and values and is supported by a committee that safeguards its dissemination and compliance. Annually, as a member of the World Agreement and following the guidelines of the Global.
Reporting Initiative (GRI), Baleària drafts a Sustainability Report that reports about the advances made in acquired commitments before the interest groups, as well as society in general. Moreover, we’ve reinforced our commitment to sustainability by agreeing to the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (SDG) in our activities. Thus, the SDGs are our control panel towards the good corporate citizen we wish to become.
A business school has also been established to offer workshops, seminars and vocational and refresher training courses for the professional and personal improvement of employees at Baleària. This same program is offered to new professionals seeking employment with the shipping company.
Fundació Baleària, 12 years of social commitment
The Baleària Foundation has been working and supporting environmental, social, cultural and athletic activities for the past 12 years to improve social cohesion, reinforce cultural ties and promote environmental sustainability in those areas and communities where the companies carried out activities.
The Baleària Foundation structures its activities in three main fields of work:
Baleària Volunteer Work
We promote initiatives seeking to improve the lives of those who are at risk of social exclusion or living in under-privileged areas by working to promote equal opportunities, integration and diversity.
We promote and organise activities that contribute to encouraging and disseminating cultural values.
Moreover, the Baleària Foundation programs expositions and cultural activities at Es Polvorí, located at the Santa Llúcia de Eivissa bastion. The Foundation has been responsible for this multi-cultural centre since 2011 as a concession.
The environment is another key aspect of the shipping company's sustainability policy. We promote our environmental commitment with activities that raise awareness and help us to preserve the environment and fight against climate change.
We have the will to promote health and sports practice through collaborations, agreements and sports sponsorships as well as the organization of activities linked to the world of health and sport.
We have a team of volunteers made up of more than a hundred people from the different offices of the shipping company who participate actively and altruistically in the various social, cultural and solidarity activities that we organize.
