Sustainability in our DNA
Arteche is a project that is shared with the people who are part of the Group: all our clients, our suppliers, and the whole of the society in which we develop our activity.
“Our commitment is to move forward together, #MovingTogether”
Ethics, honesty, solidarity, and transparency are the principles that make up our philosophy and which all of us at Arteche follow, always seeking excellence in quality and service. Our commitment to society is strong, and all of us at Arteche want to participate actively in order to contribute to social development, and to generate value for our clients and for society as a whole.
Our companies have been recognized for our socially responsible management. In fact, we have implemented the ISO 26000 standard in the management systems of several of them in order to promote the economic and social benefit of local communities.
Our goal is to develop innovative projects that help us in implementing the concept of sustainability in each and every one of our company's activities.
In this regard, the Code of Ethical Conduct of the Arteche Group establishes a clear guideline concerning non-financial performance: “Commitment to society is an indispensable basis for the sustainable development of Arteche. Every employee must contribute to the achievement of sustainability goals, support economic progress, care for the environment, and social development". It also establishes a concise Group goal: “To offer our clients a quality service in a responsible and efficient way. To promote the support of charitable, educational, and community service activities".
