Our commitment to sustainability is the force that motivates us to keep growing and to keep caring for the world around us. We believe that all forms of progress, whether environmental, social and/or economic, should go hand in hand with achieving the global objectives proposed by international organisations.

The commitment that the CELSA Group™ has entered into with the United Nations Global Compact implies a pledge on the part of our company to adhere to the ten principles that comprise the core of the Compact, in areas as diverse as human rights, employment regulations, the environment, the fight against corruption, and the adoption of measures to support the objectives of the United Nations as currently set out in the Sustainable Development Goals. The 17 global goals defined by the United Nations address the key challenges that we face as a society from an integrated and cross-cutting perspective.

This Compact does not represent a new direction for us: from its earliest days, the CELSA Group™ has always approached its business and management activities in line with the principles of ethical conduct, respect for the environment and social responsibility. Now, thanks to our alliance with the United Nations, our commitment to these principles is even stronger and allows us to face the future with greater ambition.
