Corporate Social Responsibility
CSR is a commitment shared by Baleària as a whole and represents the company's pledge to support sustainable development, creating added value by responding to the economic, environmental and social needs and desires of our stakeholders.
We have a Business Conduct and Ethics Code that reflects the company's formal commitment to acting with integrity, responsibility and respect for the different interest groups. The text, aimed at everyone linked to any of the companies in the Baleària Group, is based on its mission, vision and values. In addition, there is a committee that ensures that this code is disseminated and complied with.
Baleària, as a member of the Global Compact, prepares an annual Sustainability Report under the guidelines of the Global Reporting Initiative (GRI) to inform the different stakeholders, as well as society in general, of the progress made in the commitments undertaken. However, we have reinforced our commitment to sustainability by incorporating the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) into our activities. In this way, the SDGs become our scorecard guiding us on the path towards becoming the corporate citizen that we want to be.
In addition, the Business School has been set up to offer conferences, seminars and occupational or ongoing training courses that support the professional and personal development of Baleària's employees and attract professionals who want to work for the shipping company.
The Baleària Foundation, the company's social commitment
Baleària's commitment to society is expressed through the Baleària Foundation programmes. This entity was founded in 2004 to improve social cohesion, foster cultural strengthening and enhance the environmental sustainability in the regions where the shipping company operates.
Since 2012, the Baleària Foundation has been a signatory of the Spanish Network of the Global Compact, and it is guided by the Sustainable Development Goals of the United Nations.
Through the Llonges de la Cultura programme, the Baleària Foundation promotes and organises activities that contribute to encouraging and disseminating art and culture. It consists of spaces, either its own or in collaboration with third parties, which facilitate the exchange of cultural expressions between the different regions.
In accordance with the shipping company's environmental commitment, the Baleària Foundation supports activities that raise awareness, protect the environment and combat climate change.
The Foundation promotes initiatives to improve the quality of life of groups at risk of social exclusion, as well as boosting equal opportunities, interculturality, integration and diversity. Its volunteers take part in humanitarian aid collection campaigns , among other activities.
The Baleària Foundation seeks to reinforce health and sporting activities through collaborations, agreements and sports sponsorship, as well as by organising events linked to the world of health and sport.
