The SERES Foundation promotes the engagement of enterprises in the improvement of society with responsible actions in line with the strategy of the company and generating value for everyone.
The SERES Foundation is a national non-governmental organization, which was founded on February 18, 2010. It is made up of more than 125 companies and we believe in the importance of their actions for the improvement of society. All companies and organizations can be accommodated regardless of their location or size.
We favour and promote business actions of a strategic nature, which contribute to the overall improvement of the social reality, and that such actions generate value for both society and the company. We want more and better Corporate Social Responsibility and that this vision is at the core of companies. CSR must move from a philanthropic vision to one that is more demanding, to a style of management, which is more in line with what companies are like while being more sustainable over time.
To favour disadvantaged individuals and groups at risk of exclusion, so that the SERES Foundation contributes to reducing the present social divide.
To become a transforming movement, to be a catalyst for provocation, we seek to change the conception that organizations have of CSR through their involving them, and thereby raising the level of debate around Corporate Social Responsibility. We seek to be a reference in social action, promoting, innovating, collaborating, working and sharing knowledge based on technology.
Commitment: professional quality and ethical action and transparent communication.
Share knowledge: between the foundation, companies and entities.
Mutual learning between the foundation, the company and the different entities and social agents with which SERES interacts (Administration, non-profit entities, institutions, business schools ...).
Innovation that makes it possible for companies to generate the most up to date, innovative and transformational social programs and projects that might achieve a greater social impact.
Anticipation: identifying those opportunities arising for the continuous transformation of society and making them available to companies.
Advise entities on their specific demands so they achieve success in their actions, defining opportunities, anticipated trends and creating alliances.
Networking. Meetings between entities to facilitate relationships. Enhance learning from experience, the transmission of knowledge and collaboration through alliances for the development of successful actions. We understand alliances as being the construction of a joint commitment that fosters values and leads to social change.
Communicate the message and convey knowledge. We want to raise the level of the debate around CSR, and to do this:
Provide managers with the tools to help them along the way they need to travel in order to implement CSR at the centre of the company, rather than in an isolated area.
