The Gipuzkoa-based company has defined a series of commitments and good practices in line with the UN Sustainable Development Goals in order to draw the attention of customers and workers to certain global problems such as environmental conservation, hunger, gender inequality, responsible consumption and global peace.
The first action of this plan has focused on helping the Ukrainian population at war by collecting materials among the company’s employees.
The Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) are a set of 17 challenges defined by the UN. They are part of the 2030 Agenda and are a universal call to action to end poverty, protect the planet and improve the lives and prospects of people around the world.
“We want to be an active part of this commitment and contribute as much as we can to the success of the SDGs. That is why we felt it was very important to integrate it into our strategy, involve our employees and raise awareness in our environment” – said Ricardo Gonzalez, CEO of Spyro.
Spyro has developed a plan to carry out awareness-raising and sensitisation actions, selecting 12 initiatives related to the SDGs and the company’s environment. Employees have also expressed their satisfaction with the initiative, which shows its social face in these uncertain times we live in.
Humanitarian aid to Ukraine
Specifically, the first action corresponding to the month of January and related to SDG 16, consisted of collecting materials to send to Ukraine through the Asociación Ucrania Euskadi. The company’s workers have contributed energy items (batteries, candles, lighters, torches…), food, personal and general hygiene, medicines and other items such as sleeping bags, which have been delivered to the Association’s facilities in the Altza neighbourhood. In total, 10 boxes of various materials that will be delivered to the Ukrainian population in the coming days.
