Our social contribution is based on our innovative activity and our work to improve the communities where we are present, by creating quality employment and social and solidary actions.
We strive to improve our technology in order to help solve important social issues, such as road safety. In 2014, more than 25,700 people lost their lives on roads in the European Union. In the United States, more than 32,000 people died in traffic accidents that year. Sending an automatic alert and geolocation when an accident has occurred boosts emergency services’ response by 50% in rural areas and 40% in urban areas.
This is why we continually work on innovative solutions and products that contribute to safer mobility, such as e-Call (emergency call) and new advanced driver-assistance systems.
Furthermore, following our commitment to people and human values, we continue to collaborate on various social, sports, cultural, and educational initiatives in the cities and countries where our centres are located.
We actively participate in the Multiple Sclerosis Foundation (FEM in Spanish), collaborate with the Gaspar de Portolà Foundation, which focuses on the social and labour integration of people with mental disabilities, and with associations and institutions including the Red Cross, Spanish Association Against Cancer (AECC in Spanish), and Hospice of St. Thomas Apostle, among others.
