CSR and sustainability
Our commitment to the environment and society is based upon our corporate social responsibility (CSR) and sustainability. Due to our location in the Biosphere Reserve of Les Terres de l’Ebre, we have taken specific measures to minimize the impact that our activity may have on the environment through responsible agriculture and the environmental, social and economic dimensions of our business.
This commitment will be conveyed to our entire supply chain and all our agricultural partners in order to promote waste-free agriculture, in which the farmers are the entities most committed to preserving and increasing biodiversity, as well as caring for the environment with responsible behaviour.
In 2013 the region of Les Terres de l’Ebre was declared a Biosphere Reserve by UNESCO, thanks to its remarkable landscape, the representative nature of its Mediterranean eco-systems, and the model of its biodiversity preservation. Biosphere reserves are areas with the aim of harmonising the conservation of biological and cultural diversity with economic development and social wellbeing through the relationship between people and nature.
As a result, Olivite Export acts as a partner of this environmental hallmark, which adds value to its products.
Our company is positioned in the olive oil sector driven by the spirit of achievement and growth. Our enterprise consists of cooperatives, whose commercial activities are designed to generate value for our farmers in order to advocate and further promote sustainable agriculture in an increasingly global environment.
Our company’s foundations are based on agrarian cooperative values. Therefore, by broadening our business horizons, this philosophy of joining forces places an emphasis on our corporate social responsibility (CSR).
The direction taken by Olivite Export is guided by the management of the impacts generated by our activities on our customers, employees, partners, local communities, the environment, and culture in general.
The company is committed to promoting the values of effective equality between men and women as well as diversity and we encourage these habits among our employees in order to foster a pleasant working environment that fosters teamwork and collaboration.
Our CSR is based on the following principles:
- Legislation compliance
- A cross-disciplinary and global perspective throughout the value chain
- Ethical considerations and the common good
- The management of potential impacts
- Meeting the expectations and needs of the customer
