The Applus+ Group establishes its strategy to improve ESG (environmental, social and corporate governance) indicators within the framework of responsible and sustainable business management, contributing to society and to the environment in which it operates. In this context, we define our purpose and values.
You can read all our sustainability milestones in the 2021 Financial and Non-Financial Information Report.
Responsible governance at Applus+ is built through a clear set of regulations and a corporate-governance model that ensures compliance, independence and transparency. Our Code of Ethics is embedded across all our divisions to promote and ensure the observance of professional and honest business practices.
Applus+ promotes open innovation and interdepartmental collaboration across all its business units to ensure that sustainability is at the heart of all our work processes, as well as those of our clients, encouraging our employees to think innovatively.
Applus+ guarantees good working conditions, offering employees a fair, safe and competitive working environment with professional development opportunities. In this way, Applus+ attracts and retains highly talented professionals. Diversity in all its forms is encouraged across Applus+ teams, avoiding assumptions based on any kind of discrimination or stereotyping.
The Applus+ business strategy is based on understanding what our clients and stakeholders require, foreseeing their needs and working to fulfil their expectations through high service standards and high-quality procedures across all our divisions.
Applus+ is working actively to limit and, where possible, prevent its potential environmental impact through policies and management systems based on international standards and environmental legislation. A particular focus of Applus+ is waste reduction, as well as the optimisation of energy and resource use in both internal management and in the services we provide our clients.
