We aim for sustainable economic development. Showing responsibility towards society and the environment.
Enterprises must comply with regulations. They may on a voluntary basis go beyond the regulatory requirements. They may in their business strategy aspire to be responsible. Take into consideration the impact of their operations on: clients, employees, shareholders, other enterprises, local communities, the environment and society at large. All public and private organisations have a duty to be responsible.
Are you responsible? All enterprises can be responsible. Some enterprises are responsible and have not yet realised it. Others adopt simple, small-scale initiatives. Aligned with their size and circumstances. Small and Medium Enterprises can be responsible.
The corporate responsibility of an enterprise begins by matching the reality of the business to its identity and image. It means being genuine. Providing the basis for people to trust in it. Be responsible towards: suppliers, clients, shareholders, employees; fulfil your commitments to other enterprises, among other aspects.
The social responsibility of enterprise guarantees its future, wealth and job creation. In the short, medium and long terms. By means of: research, innovation, pursuit of quality, competitiveness, transferring operations to other countries.
Responsibility is reflected in every aspect of the enterprise: operations, products, services and customer response.
At the social level a responsible enterprise contributes to its host community: guaranteeing equality between men and women, adopting measures to enhance the well-being of its workers: appropriate working conditions, training, professional development opportunities, balance between personal and professional life, positive working environment, personal well-being. Other initiatives in this field include: involvement in the professional integration of those with problems of exclusion.
The responsibility of an enterprise regarding the environment begins with regulatory compliance in this regard. Enterprises are encouraged to go beyond the regulatory requirements. To establish sustainable operations, services and products.
Some enterprises take into consideration in their purchases and procurement factors connected with the environment or social commitment. Other enterprises go further in their corporate responsibility initiatives: they collaborate to some extent with social projects, development cooperation or environmental initiatives.
The returns derived by the company from such operations are the result of a good reputation, credibility, trust and loyalty of individuals. Social recognition and prestige. Quality in its operations, products, services, customer response.
Opportunities for the future available to responsible enterprises. This impacts on profits.
To generate a return from such initiatives, create trust, loyalty towards the enterprise, you will need to publicise and communicate such actions on professional forums, with clients, through quality certificates, advertising or other methods.
The social responsibility of enterprises is promoted by public authorities and private organisations. They encourage collaboration and the exchange of experiences, training.
The law requires businesses to comply with minimum social and environmental rules.
