One of the lines of action laid down in the Social Responsibility Plan is involvement in the community and the social fabric. Thus, the companies in the abertis group and the abertis foundation pursue a broad program of sponsorships which prioritize projects related to road safety, the environment, culture and social accessibility.
The group supports the ‘Voluntaris’ corporate volunteer scheme, which came from employees themselves, by providing resources and communication tools for the volunteers to carry on and build up their social work outside working hours. abertis organizes an annual Volunteer Day, a chance to share projects with different NGOs and involve those employees who are willing in charity projects.
abertis shares with the companies which are now part of its group a sensitivity to historic and artistic heritage and to cultural values. Thus, the group works with the principal cultural institutions, always through the authorities, with the aim of making it possible to work on sites which would otherwise be unlikely to receive financial support for their recovery.
It has also placed at the disposal of interested members of the public two heritage assets of outstanding interest: Castellet castle and the Roman quarry of El Mèdol, a site included in the declaration of the city of Tarragona as a World Heritage Site.
