New CSR action Termavi-Down vigo

The CSR actions we planned for this year 2021, include a new collaboration agreement with the Down Syndrome Association of Vigo, an entity belonging to Down Spain, whose mission it is to promote and condut all activities that will improve the quality of life of people with Down Syndrome and Intellectual Disabilities, by upholding their rights, duties, and essential freedoms for their full development as individuals, through full social inclusion, and the use of ordinary resources from the community.

This agreement will enable Grupo Davila companies, such as Termavi, to welcome people with intellectual disabilities for internships, and future hiring for longer periods of time.


Termavi's CSR actions

In March, we signed and agreement as part of the Group's industrial division plan  CSR 2021 (CSR 4-2021). This agreement involves the Bottlenose Dolphin Research Institute (BDRI), for the conservation of marine biodiversity in the Rías Bajas.

The BDRI is a non-profit scientific organization dedicated to marine research. It has been studying blue whales for many years, and in recent years, the presence of otters on our Galician coastline. This agreement's objective is to follow the guidelines of Sustainable Development 14(OSD14) globally, including concrete actions in support of their studies of sentinel and indicator species, such as otters, plastic pollution, and also the clean-up of Galician beaches and sandbanks.

You can reach the BDRI website here . If at any time you would like to participate in the beach cleanups, just let us know!

Our seas and oceans are the lifeblood of our planet, covering more than 70% of the planet's surface, driving climate, regulating temperature, and ultimately sustaining all living organisms. They also serve as the foundation for much of the global economy, supporting sectors such as shipping, renewable energy, tourism and fisheries and employing millions of people.

Despite their enormous importance, our seas and oceans face unprecedented threats. Coastal ecosystems, which are home to much of the planet's biodiversity, are the most affected by human-induced impacts such as climate change, pollution, habitat destruction and overexploitation of marine resources.

The Galician coastline, almost 1,500 km long, where thousands of people depend on the sea for their livelihood, is one of the most vulnerable areas in Europe regarding these impacts, which underme marine productivity and biodiversity. However, it is possible, and dependes on us, to reverse this trend following the indications of the United Nations Sustainable Development Goal 14 (SDG14) "to conserve and sustainably use the oceans, seas and marine resources to attain sustainable development".
