The abertis group is making its new Sponsorship manual available to all institutions and other bodies. The document Community Commitment Projects Executive Manual is a practical tool for abertis and the companies in its group. It lays down what types of project are priorities for its sponsorship activities, what requirements any request for assistance must meet and the steps to take for it to be accepted.
Projects must be connected with road safety, the environment, training and research, culture or people's quality of life. They will be approved or rejected by the group company to which the application is made or by the Sponsorship Committee, depending on the size of the financial assistance requested.
The manual also includes the rules for the abertis foundation's Programme to Foster Research. This programme is open to work focusing on the repercussions of major infrastructures on the regions (economy, population and the environment) and on road safety.
