logo-vector-fira-barcelonaToday we’re very happy to reveal the name of our new social partner. Fira de Barcelona has started to collaborate with us in order to fund social and cooperation projects!

Now, the organization offers the opportunity to add one extra euro each time attendants will buy an online ticket for some of their events.

The first one is the “Saló de l’Ensenyament”, an academic meeting for students, teachers and education centres which occurs once in a year and it’s very useful to inform about the current academic offer in Spain.

logo-adsis-web_3The first social project which they will start collaborate comes from Fundación Adsis, an organization that pursues the challenge of building a more equal and social with the integral promotion of people and groups that are excluded and at risk of social exclusion.

Attendees will help young people, like them, to have equal education opportunities, an important challenge if we consider that in Spain 6 out of 30 teenagers in a classroom are facing economic difficulties that will condition their future.         

The socioeconomic situation of some children and adolescents condition their educational development. 31% of young people at risk of social exclusion do not have internet access from home, and 42% do not have enough tranquillity at home to study and do their homework.

Through this project, Fundación Adsis may provide Access and guidance in the use of digital tools to 50 adolescents who are at risk of social exclusion, accompaniment in school reinforcement and training in ICT (Information and Communication Technologies).

We invite you to follow the donation process through THIS LINK.

Yesterday, 16th of June, we got together in the IESE Business School in Barcelona with five businesses that all have one thing in common, all of us are pioneers and we are leading the B-Corp movement in Spain.

The purpose of this meeting was to show the assistants how their organization can be a part of a movement that is being extended around the world. However, the most important thing was to show how their organization could become one of the best businesses for the world.

The companies that participated in this event with us were:

  • Grupo Construcia
  • DBS Screening
  • 1000 Friends
  • Alma Natura

B the Change

The schedule of events was:

First of all, Pablo Sánchez of Roots for Sustainability, made a presentation about the B Corp movement. Then, he talked about a B Corp International experience. Afterwards, Joan Fontrodona, the teacher of Business Ethics and Analysis at the IESE Business School, talked.

Before beginning the conferences about B-Talks, Albert Riera of the La Fageda Business, made their contribution to the event.

What does it mean to become a part of the B-Corp movement?

B the force for good

The B-Corp business are a type of company that uses the power of the companies to solve social and environmental problems. Moreover, this companies inspires other companies to compete, not only for be the best in the world, also to be the best for the world.

Be a part of B-Corp means that we are inside a movement that shows that create employment with better quality and improve the quality of our communities, contribute to the company success.
