Our contribution to the SDGs


In 2015, the United Nations (UN) and its member states adopted the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development. This Agenda includes 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), which aim for a clear and effective commitment from everyone to protecting the environment, social and economic balance.

The Vicaima Group is fully committed to making its contribution to achieving the relevant objectives within its area of activity, monitoring and defining strategies that will enable it to minimise negative impacts in its value chain and boost positive ones, while strengthening its economic resilience. The objectives we have set are thus driving action in this process of transition to a more efficient economy in the use of materials and resources, which promotes circularity and responsible consumption, as well as, the use of clean energies and decarbonisation.

We want the Vicaima Group's sustainable development to also be based on diversity and inclusion strategies, as well as the creation of new opportunities for the company and its people.
