Committed to society
Contributing to the wealth and wellbeing of society, through a solid and lasting industrial project, is a general aim of Ercros.
The company has signed up to the Responsible Care programme, a global chemical sector initiative promoted in Spain by the Business Federation of the Spanish Chemical Industry (FEIQUE). As a member of this programme, we are committed to continuous improvement in terms of safety, health, environment and protection in all our operations.
Ercros obtained 81 points out of 100 in the self-assessment questionnaire on compliance with the Responsible Care programme. This result places Ercros eight points above the average of the 385 European companies that completed the questionnaire and represents an improvement of more than four points over the previous year. Of particular note is the improvement in the strengthening of the chemical product management systems (product stewardship).
The company is committed and involved in all the areas in which it operates, especially in the communities where its work centres are located. One of Ercros' main contributions to society is the employment generated by its activity, with more than 4,500 direct, indirect and induced jobs, which represent an average of 3% of the active population of the municipalities in which its factories are located.
Ercros also contributes economically to sustaining public finances through the payment of taxes, levies, fees, contributions, etc.
