Corporate volunteering programmes

We offer Corporate volunteer programmes aimed at companies that wish to offer to their staff activities related to biodiversity and the environment within their Corporate responsibility policies. The specific activities are designed in each case in order to align them with the sustainability strategy of each entity and to create value for employees and other stakeholders.

We implement occasional activities and complement volunteering programmes. In this context, we develop since 2014 the Environmental Volunteering Programme of Gas Natural Fenosa, that was started by the company to promote a positive attitude among employees towards environmental conservation in areas located close to their working areas. The objective of the programme is to promote that volunteers become aware of their relationship with nature in a different way, giving them the possibility to observe and improve the natural environment on site.

Different environmental corporate volunteering activities have been implemented with companies such as Johnson & Johnson – Janssen , Vodafone or Pavasal. In addition, we have participated in the International Volunteering Week of Forética.
