The Corporate Social Responsibility is the commitment the members of an entity display towards themselves, as well as towards the society.
Boluda Corporación Marítima has been keeping this promise with continuous commitment since decades, focussing our responsibility on the minimization of the impact that our activities have on society and environment. Therefore, we are proactively benefitting our interest groups.
Humanitarian Transport is the solidary project that was created by Boluda Corporación Marítima in collaboration with NGOs and organizations for development cooperation. The project’s main purpose is the free provision of space on the Boluda Line’s ships that are later being transferred to developing countries or countries with humanitarian crises.
One of the major problems that NGOs are facing, are the extensive costs for the transport of humanitarian supplies, as well as the difficulties arising from transiting the continent’s often unsafe ground routes. The maritime transport, therefore, has turned into an important alternative for these NGOs, and we, Boluda Corporación Marítima, wanted to join our forces with the educational, sanitary and infrastructural projects, with the clear purpose of a fundamental cooperation with the African continent.
