We are committed to our children, the future generations of our planet. Driven by a dream, a world that is powered exclusively by clean and renewable energies.
We are proud of our business model based on sustainability. As producers of renewable energy, our activity tackles climate change directly, one of the main challenges of our time.
But beyond our active contribution to a low carbon economy, we feel that we want to do much more to contribute to the achievement of the Sustainable Development Goals set by the United Nations. Thus, we have developed a Sustainability Plan with clear objectives for 2023. The areas of work at our plan are those where we can create a significant impact according to the opinions of our stakeholders.
As main objectives, we seek to create positive impact in society, in our local communities, to protect the environment and the cultural heritage present in our projects. We embrace transparency and business ethics and believe in policies that take care of our employees helping us to attract and retain talent.
We are concerned by the global challenges and we align our objectives and action plans to the Sustainable Development Goals set by the United Nations General Assembly in 2015, to contribute to their progress towards achievement by 2030. www.un.org/sustainabledevelopment
Greenalia supports the Ten Principles of the United Nations Global Compact on human rights, labour, environment and anti-corruption. We are committed to making the UN Global Compact and its principles part of the strategy, culture and day-to-day operations of our company.
