Q. We see that you are very involved in environmental responsibility. Can you tell us more about it?
A. We have always been very aware of the importance of preserving our ecosystem and have been implementing day-to-day improvements to be more sustainable and respectful with the environment.
These initiatives are part of the firm’s Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) strategy, focused on raising awareness in society about problems such as marine pollution.
In addition to this, we have reinforced our position with the creation of a business line specializing in sustainability, complementing the CSR actions and caring for the environment from a 360º approach, both internally – with colleague awareness – and in support of ecological client transformation and, eventually, the support for non-profit initiatives promoting care for the planet.
Furthermore, we are currently obtaining the Carbon Neutral Seal, which will make us the first asset valuation and advisory firm in Spain to be awarded this certification.
