The initiative seeks to actively help build a better world, not only by providing education, but also a safe and healthy environment for children in schools in Africa.
AlgaEnergy, a leading international company in microalgae biotechnology and its applications, loyal to its commitment to contributing to a better future, based on sustainable development and the creation of opportunities for future generations, has joined the initiative 'SMEs friends of UNICEF'. With this initiative, UNICEF Spain seeks to help the most vulnerable children access a quality education, in addition to guaranteeing a safe and healthy environment for them. The initiative has a comprehensive approach, as it covers the fundamental areas for the survival and development of children.
The commitment to this initiative adds to some others to which the biotechnology company has recently joined, such as the signing of the United Nations Global Compact or its adherence to the '1% for the Planet' movement. In addition, early this year AlgaEnergy became the first Spanish biotechnology company to obtain the B Corp certification, after having demonstrated during a long and in-depth audit process that its activity generates a positive impact on society and on the planet. In this way, the company has proven to comply with rigorous quality standards related to governance, the human team, its clients, the environment, the organization's environment and the community.
With AlgaEnergy's adhesion to the ‘UNICEF-friendly SMEs’ program, it is once again clear that values such as responsibility, ethics, morality, professionalism, justice and transparency, in addition to research and innovation, are an integral part of the company’s DNA. In this sense, Augusto Rodríguez-Villa, President of AlgaEnergy, said that "at AlgaEnergy we understand that our business must achieve not only economic, but also social and environmental success. This conviction is shared horizontally across our organization, and is also reflected in our governance through strategic plans, codes of conduct, certifications, and other implementations".
