Bombas IDEAL

For “Bombas Ideal SA”, Corporate Social Responsibility is integrated into the internal dynamics of the company and does not obey specific actions with exclusively philanthropic content, but is part of the same strategic direction.

The Company reconciles growth and competitiveness – based on its own competitive advantages – with the return to society of part of the added value generated and with the commitment to social development and environmental improvement, and is currently awarded ISO 14001 certification.

  • The ENVIRONMENTAL dimension is based on the optimisation of the resources used (generalisation of LED light sources in all areas, reuse of water in the Pump Test Bench, minimisation of waste generated…) thus contributing to the improvement of the natural environment of society as a whole.

  • From an ECONOMIC perspective, the commitment of “Bombas Ideal SA” is the creation of long-term added value and ethical behaviour at all decision-making levels within the corporation.

  • From the SOCIAL point of view, the strategy is based on the professional development of the employees, on their continuous training, on the optimum conditions of the working environment (ergonomics, health, safety and cleanliness) and on facilitating the reconciliation of work and family. All this in an environment of maximum respect for all employees.

At the same time, Bombas Ideal collaborates with various entities to help the most needy, NGOs and sports initiatives (including its own facilities for the enjoyment of all employees) with the aim of improving the quality of life of these groups through the transfer of added value generated in economic activity.

Finally, I would like to point out that the donation of equipment for the extraction, distribution and use of water resources contribute to economic and social development, avoiding depopulation due to lack of water and promoting Life in the most disadvantaged areas.

Currently, the Company is in the process of being awarded the “ISO 26000” CSR Certification.
