On 30 May Boluda Corporación Marítima representatives attended a meeting on responsible communication organized by Corresponsables, which this year has chosen Valencia to celebrate the 100th edition of the conference they have been holding since 2008. At this event participants discussed the contribution of communication and Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) to the Sustainable Development Goals (SDG) set by the UN for 2030.

Boluda Corporación Marítima’s interest in the conference is aligned with its business plan based on sustainable growth, with a strategy of social responsibility based on a corporate development model that has been diversified and internationalized from a responsible and sustainable point of view.

The event is part of the first Ibero-American Responsible Communication Forum where from the perspective of “Responsible Communication and SDG”, the speakers focused on lessons learned and the trends and challenges facing responsible communication and CSR over the coming years.

This informative conference took place at Bankia’s headquarters, which also hosted the 12th edition of the Correspondents’ Annual 2017, a leading publication in the field of CSR and Sustainability. The seminars were introduced by Bankia CSR manager, David Menéndez, Pablo Martín, manager of Corresponsables Spain, and the regional secretary of Transparency and RSC, Zulima Pérez. The closing session was chaired by the president of the Valencian Business Confederation, Salvador Navarrro.

Within the framework of Agenda 2030, responsible communication is one of the tools that all organizations and interest groups have at their disposal to ensure compliance with SRGs, goals that the UN adopted on 25 September 2015 to end poverty, protect the planet and guarantee prosperity, as part of a new agenda for sustainable development. Each goal has specific targets to be met over the next 13 years.

Representatives from Bankia, Valencia Port and Consum made up the first discussion table on “The contribution of communication and RSC to SDGs”, moderated by Martha Rodríguez, projects and content manager of the Etnor Foundation. The interest group table discussed “The keys to responsible communication to promote SDGs” with the participation of the Valencia Business Confederation (CEV), Plena Inclusión Valencia and the Jaume I University, moderated by head of CSR Valencia Jaume Fons.
