Commitment to the GLOBAL COMPACT
amec, at the end of 2011, decided to sign the commitment to the GLOBAL COMPACT with the intention of taking a more determined step in the field of CSR, including the daily activities of the association and becoming a Friend of the CSR- SMEinitiative. In line with this commitment, amec regularly presents its Progress Reports in the field of CSR.
Awareness and sensitization
Apart from the significant awareness-raising work we do through our channels and communication media among our member companies, in July 2011, amec signed a collaboration agreement with the Obra Social "La Caixa" and the Group incorporated represented by the Martí Codolar Youth Centre - Salesianos Sant Jordi, to encourage work placement of people at risk of exclusion.
amec has actively collaborated with the Martí Codolar Youth Centre and Salesianos Professional School of Sarria offering hours of practicals and mentorship to young students of the centre, who complement their training received in these centres. amec has also selected a supplier in line with its CSR policy, within the Incorporate Programme of La Caixa which handles and sends the magazine amecEXPORT published regularly by the association. Fundació Tallers is a special work centre in which 80% of the people who work there are disabled or have a mental disorder.
It has also registered in the CHARITY PROGRAMME of the Spanish Association against Cancer, with the aim of disseminating healthy life styles among its employees.
Solidarity and social commitment are our rules
