At the Bertolin Group we consider Corporate Social Responsibility to be a strategic element of our management, closely related both to business growth and to the commitments we have with all the stakeholders with whom we interact, as well as with society and the environment.
For us, CSR also has a strong ethical component. This means ethical management and good corporate governance, which is marked by our organisation’s code of ethics and conduct and which, moreover, is fully integrated into our
Our objective is to continue advancing along our current trajectory, consolidating our Corporate Responsibility strategy with actions that contribute to the achievement of our Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). These can be summarised as follows: to grow in a responsible and sustained manner, offering efficient solutions, minimising the impact of our activity on the environment, and maintaining our commitment to enhancing people’s capabilities, health and wellbeing.
The implementation of the Code of Ethics and Conduct, as well as a full programme for the prevention of criminal offences which, together with the current programme for the prevention of occupational risks, environmental protection, and the Equality Plan, fulfil our compliance with the current regulations. The aim is for this Code to be the practical guide to fostering responsibility, trust, and commitment. Furthermore, it is intended that everyone, including management, employees, customers, and suppliers, use it as a guide to strengthen their values so enabling them to deal patiently with situations and behaviours, they would normally find challenging.
This channel should only be used to report possible breaches of Compliance, as well as to make enquiries about the interpretation of the provisions of the Code of Ethics, of any other internal regulations or of the legislation in force and applicable to the Bertolin Group. All reports will be processed by the Compliance Manager and treated with the utmost confidentiality and discretion.
Our priority, within the social action, is to collaborate with the most disavantaged people, as well as helping children, promoting healthy life habits consolidating our continuous commitment with sports through actions destined to the promotion of this lifestyle and support for cultural events that generate a positive impact on the society. For that, we maintain collaborations with different collectives: social, sports, cultural, university…etc.
It is undeniable that the aspects related to Quality, the Environment and the Security and Health of our workers are strongly linked to our vision: “Do it well or don’t do it”, that is so rooted in our coporative culture. And it is in the common origin of these three aspects where we can find the meeting point, because commiting to our client’s requirements, developping our activiry in a sustainable way and guaranteeing the Security and Health of our team are the results of a well done work.
For that, in 1997, we implemented a unique management system through a SIG department, that would allow a more efficent management of the processes, optimize the ressourcs and take advantage of the sinergies of a management, producing profits to improve our competitivity and when making decisions.
The certifications and recognitions obtained through the time show us that the implemented policies are efficient and are helping us in taking actions to get better continuously in the development of our processes.
Quality is our referent, what is reflected in the obtained certifications: ISO 9001, ISO 14001, ISO 45000.
In the execution of our projects we use sustainability criteria to permit the obtention of the environment and energetic certification of the installations with the distinct BREEAM Very Good, where the reduction of the energetic consumption, the maintenance fees, and the benefits for the environment will help and reduce the CO2 emissions. Moreover, we participated in the conceptualization and execution of the first Logistics Park of private initiative with certified sustainability (green certification GBCe), which is called to be the reference of the logistic parks of the future, for its quality standards and sustainability. In this case, the construction materials have been reused, environmental measurings have been carried out, green zones have been created with native species that require a minimum use of water for its maintenance, and about the illumination, led lights have been installed, as maximum exponents of the circular economy concept that is going to be introduced.
Grupo Bertolín establishes and implants healthy policy of his employees, guaranteeing secure and healthy work environment, and is making aware all of our collaboratives within the production process. The security and health of our employees are an important foundation and essential for the company.
In Grupo Bertolín, we are conscious that we work in sensible activities, and it is the reason why we make important efforts for the health and work risks prevention. Grupo Bertolín has a strategy and an actuation plan, that is inspected regularly, and the purpose is to comply with the legal requirements, as well as to implicate all the organization in the normative’s compliance.
We are looking for a continuous preventive culture in all of our areas, through the obligations and responsibilities’ formation, information and sensibilization of our employees, as well as commiting all of the organization in the compliance of the normative. The key of the success in prevention is that the same employees are responsible of the compliance and they commit with the part they are responsible of. This fact is accredited for the certifications obtained and the noticeable reduction of the accident rate indexes.
Our commitment with the health and well-being is one of our basic pillar of our value offer to the employee, and reduction of the work’s absenteeism, promoting healthy life habits and consolidating our continuous commitment with the sports through actions dedicated to the promotion of this lifestyle and that can be gathered in our CSR memory.
