Example of responsibility
IFEMA's Corporate Social Responsibility Report 2019 presents the institution's progress in the field of sustainability and the achievements made throughout the year through our contribution to economic, social and environmental development. It also reflects our efforts to collaborate with the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals on which our activity impacts through IFEMA's CSR Master Plan.
CSR Master Plan and sustainable development objectives
During this year, the CSR Master Plan has guided our actions and initiatives aimed at having an impact on our environment as a driver of sustainable development and an example of responsibility.
Since the implementation of the CSR Master Plan, we have reinforced our commitment to promoting the Sustainable Development Objectives (SDAs) on which our activity impacts.
Involved - Respect for the environment
Throughout the year we have worked hard to reduce the environmental impact of IFEMA's activity, promoting the sustainability of our infrastructures and events. We have promoted the development of equipment linked to environmental commitment and energy efficiency, always making responsible use of natural resources.
Humans - People, our most valuable asset
Our efforts have focused on providing our employees with a healthy and safe working environment in which to develop both personally and professionally, as well as on promoting equality, diversity and ethical behavior. As a Family-Responsible Organisation, we aim to encourage and promote the reconciliation of work and family life.
Energizers - Boosting economic growth and employment
Once again, we have contributed to boosting business development and entrepreneurship through our trade fairs, as well as economic growth in our city, being the second driving force behind Madrid's development and ambassadors of the Spain brand at an international level. Our activity and our capacity to influence have contributed excellent figures of impact and economic and labour dynamism that reflect how effort, together with innovation, generates progress.
Committed - Close to society
We are aware of our responsibility to society and our commitment to be a beacon and example for other institutions. We have shared with our workers solidarity projects, through the Corporate Volunteer Plan, and we have involved our fairs in solidarity, entrepreneurship or awareness causes for environmental, economic and social sustainability. Likewise, our clients have continued to be at the centre of our business, always trying to provide them with excellence in service.
