Sustainability

We were among the first to incorporated sustainability professionals in large companies and, in some cases, defining the position from scratch for our clients. That is why we are proud to say that we have contributed to the explosion of interest among organizations in profiles in this area, which are in increasingly higher demand.
We are certified in all multinational companies that demand important sustainability measures be followed by their suppliers.

Moreover, at AdQualis we not only help other organizations follow sustainability measures, but also think and act as a sustainable company in all internal aspects of our organization, taking action to reduce our environmental impact.

Thanks to this, EcoVadis awarded us the Silver level in its sustainability evaluation. EcoVadis is the world’s most prestigious provider of sustainability ratings as well as collaborative intelligence and performance improvement tools for global supply chains. More than 85,000 businesses are part of their network and we collaborate to assess and improve our sustainability performance to foster transparency and innovation while accelerating growth.

The AdQualis Code of Ethics and Conduct is a relevant milestone, because one of the founding commitments of our company was, and continues to be, the effort to develop a project for people, providing solutions in the field of HR and its processes, prioritising the values of excellence, integrity, generosity and contribution of value in the relationships with our clients, our team and with the different stakeholders.

In this sense, the Code of Ethics and Conduct includes the values, general principles of action and guidelines of conduct that have guided us over these years and adapts to the new social and corporate management demands, and also represents our commitment to ethics, integrity, compliance with laws and professionalism.

AdQualis has created the Code of Ethics as an appropriate and effective way to detect possible irregularities or non-compliance. This AdQualis Ethical Channel establishes a confidential communication procedure, in accordance with its Use Policy, so that members of the organisation (directors, managers and employees, and people reporting to any of them), business partners (clients, suppliers, collaborators, etc.) as well as any third party, such as interested parties or interest groups of AdQualis, may report or inform them of any behavior, action, conduct or omission that may lead to legislative breaches and/or or practices contrary to corporate principles and values, rules established in the Code of Ethics and Consultation, and transfer any suggestion to improve the system of compliance and respect for legality, and other regulations of the organization, and any situations or events that require the attention of the Ethics and Compliance Committee.

AdQualis chooses to outsource the Code of Ethics monitoring system in order to provide it with greater confidentiality, professionalism and independence, managed by an external lawyer who will treat the data provided with the utmost confidentiality in accordance with the policy on the use of the ethical channel. and current regulations.
