Accelerating towards sustainability

At Grup Carles, we approach our contribution to the Sustainable Development Goals from a holistic vision of sustainability that encompasses environmental, social, and corporate governance (ESG) aspects.

The purpose of Grup Carles is closely tied to personal and business progress and is inseparable from the environmental, economic, and social aspects related to sustainability, as they impact the quality of life, the development of individuals at both individual and community levels, and the achievement of companies and organizations committed to sustainable development.

We have initiated the creation of the Sustainability Committee with the goal of developing an action plan that allows us to integrate growth, profitability, and ESG into the core strategy, while also deepening the progressive integration of sustainability aspects into the Group's professional services offerings.

Commitment to Environmental Sustainability

Our environmental responsibility as an organization has led us to calculate the Carbon Footprint, in scope 1 and 2, of our offices and activities and to implement an action plan to generate photovoltaic energy, promote the purchase of energy from renewable sources, eliminate plastic packaging, carry out selective collection of office waste and progressively eliminate paper consumption with the digitization of processes.

Commitment to Economic Sustainability and Corporate Governance

Companies that achieve financial success by integrating environmental, social, and corporate governance (ESG) priorities into their growth strategies outperform their competitors, provided they also achieve better results in fundamental aspects. The message is clear: Not only can you do well by doing good, but you can also do better."

Revenue + economic benefits + progress in ESG = extraordinary returns

In line with our mission to contribute to the success of our clients and business progress, we enhance professional services that clearly impact the improvement of environmental, social, and economic sustainability for our clients. This becomes a strategic differentiating factor for them, allowing them to be more competitive and achieve better results.

Currently, we are deepening the coordination of our environmental experts, human resources, economics, and law to provide value to our clients in integrating ESG into their corporate strategy.

Commitment to Social Sustainability

At Grup Carles, we are committed to the progress of people, from our team of professionals and clients to suppliers and the community we are part of. The company is made up of people, and we firmly believe that as an organization, we must promote the personal and professional growth of individuals throughout their career, with needs that change according to each person's life stage.

For this reason, as an organization, we have focused on the People Project to develop the professional value and transformative potential of our team members and to participate in corporate social responsibility initiatives with entities and organizations in the social, cultural, and environmental spheres of our environment.
