We see our Sustainability Report as a way to examine ourselves each year. Firstly, we inform our society through these pages of our commitment to creating a more sustainable business development.
From here, we expect some feedback from our readers with their impressions, to then integrate, among our objectives, their expectations and necessities.
Furthermore, we create this annual document as an x-ray of what we have been able to accomplish of the challenges that we had set ourselves. In this report, we detail those challenges and objectives that we have achieved, but also identify those we have not been able to meet and we present the areas where we must and can improve.
The next objective focuses on taking on new commitments for this calendar year. And amongst the new goals, we can note for its special relevance the declaration of 2017 by the United Nations as the International Year of Sustainable Tourism for Development. This is an opportunity to highlight and increase the contribution of this sector, particularly relevant in The Canary Islands, to the economy, social development and the respect of the environment.
We will also show in the report the steps we take together with the Spanish network of the Global Compact and the commitment to assume as ours the “2030 Agenda” defined by the United Nations including the objectives of Sustainable Development that aim to improve the planet and establish equal opportunities for all people.
Ultimately, with this report we seek to rely on the results of 2016 to define new social, economic and environmental goals. As well as to reformulate those objectives that we haven’t achieved, and all of this without losing sight of the road that leads us to being a more responsible company.
