Environmental Policy

”la Caixa” Banking Foundation, an organisation committed to sustainability, bases its actions on a strategic plan aimed at a corporate social responsibility policy. One fundamental aspect of this involves protecting the environment and reducing the impact on the environment of the activities and services carried out at its main work centres.

As a result, "la Caixa" Banking Foundation has implemented an environmental management system, in accordance with the ISO 14001:2015 standard, at its work centres (CaixaForum Barcelona, Madrid, Palma, Tarragona, Lleida, Girona, Zaragoza, Seville and Palau Macaya), undertaking the following:

  1. To bring our Environmental Management in line with our context and organisational culture, implementing the necessary procedures to ensure continuous improvement in our environmental performance.

  2. To adopt the necessary measures to ensure compliance with all environmental regulations applicable to our centres' activities and installations (both locally and at a regional, state and European level), as well as all the arrangements and agreements entered into by "la Caixa" Banking Foundation through its centres.

  3. To protect the environment and prevent contamination via the sustainable use of natural resources and efficient use of water and energy, as well as encouraging practices to reduce, re-use and recycle waste.

  4. To train, raise awareness and involve each employee by engaging them in our environmental management, as well as ensuring our environmental guidelines are passed on to suppliers and subcontracted firms.

  5. To encourage communication based on criteria of transparency and inform all stakeholders (workers, clients, suppliers, subcontractors, institutions, etc.) in order to familiarise them with our environmental policy and establish cooperative relations with them.

The overall aim of ”la Caixa”, Banking Foundation, through its work centres, is to help improve the environment and reduce climate change and thereby benefit all society.
