With the purpose of minimising the impact of the Abertis Group’s activities on the different regions in which it operates, the Abertis Foundation is involved in three main areas.
As regards its commitment to society, the Abertis Foundation has implemented a far-reaching Road Safety Programme aimed principally at the most vulnerable drivers and pedestrians (children, teenagers and elderly people).
The Abertis Foundation also coordinates the Group’s interest in historical and artistic heritage as well as cultural values. Working in partnership with the world’s main cultural institutions, the Abertis Foundation sponsors major exhibitions with the aim of making culture more accessible to society. It has also opened up two exceptional heritage sites to the public: Castellet Castle, the headquarters of the Abertis Foundation; and the Roman quarry of El Mèdol, which is part of the Tarragona archaeological ensemble, a UNESCO World Heritage Site.
Castellet Castle, the headquarters of the Abertis Foundation, is a UNESCO Centre for Mediterranean Biosphere Reserves, tasked with undertaking an in-depth study of the Mediterranean region. It was chosen for this role thanks to its unique surroundings in an area with rich biodiversity and its ISO 14001 certification, which ensures correct environmental management with minimum impact on the region.
In this same area of activity, the Abertis Foundation also works to reduce the carbon footprint generated by the Abertis Group’s economic activity (the Carbon Disclosure Project) by optimising waste management and conserving the biodiversity of the natural areas in which we are present.
