The Corporate Social Responsibility is the set of ethical, social and environmental commitments that a business project voluntarily takes on as it feels itself to be an active part of society and, therefore, wishes to contribute to its economic and social progress and consequently to the improvement in the people’s quality of life. The set of Social Responsibility activities undertaken by Saggas are a response to our firm social and environmental commitment. The commitment to the environment is the main objective in the field of Saggas’ Corporate Social Responsibility. The environment is a fundamental part of economic activity and the social life of any society and, therefore, energy development has to be undertaken in a planned and responsible way.
Our environmental commitment focuses on:
a) Scrupulous fulfilment of international, national, regional, and local legislation: This attitude is in line with our culture of fulfilling all the legislation applicable to our business activity, especially that legislation aimed at protecting the environment (Declaration of Environmental Impact, Authorisation for Pouring Water into the Sea, Emission of Greenhouse Effect Gases,…)
b) Collaboration with Public Administrations: To lend support to the different public administrations in the search for solutions to environmental problems. To collaborate in activities, the fundamental aim of which is to preserve and care for the environment.
c) Taking on management, handling and production criteria that reflect a commitment to the environment: The commitment to adopting the necessary measures to prevent any risk of environmental pollution, or to minimise its effect in the event that it does arise, in accordance with that established in international standards and those of our country. The implementation of good environmental practice systems in the development of our activity, which includes keeping an eye on our supplier’s respect for the environment and ensuring that our employees behave in a way that reflects our commitment. Promoting information, education and environmental training among our public and society in general, and collaborating with the organisations involved in this task, whether public or private, in the field of our activity.
