Enagás organises its first Corporate Volunteer Week

Diversity Corporate
27 November 2023
  • A total of 218 Enagás employees took part in the activities planned by the company at the locations where it has the largest presence

Enagás recently completed its first week of volunteering, which took place from 13 to 17 November. This initiative proved to be a resounding success. 218 Enagás professionals actively participated in thirteen planned activities in collaboration with several non-profit organisations.

The events focused primarily on environmental protection, inclusive sport and support for and interaction with disadvantaged groups. These experiences allowed the professionals to gain insights into different realities and share experiences which have helped develop their awareness, skills and personal growth.

Since 2012, Enagás has run a volunteer programme to boost employee motivation and to promote the socio-economic development of the local communities in which the company operates.

Many cities have carried out an array of volunteering activities:

  • Barcelona: company professionals contributed to the improvement of the Congost river ecosystem. They worked on the removal of invasive vegetation, the restoration of the native floodplain forest and the creation of shelter for wildlife.
  • Bermeo: The initiative aimed at planting trees and shrubs to contribute to the reforestation of Urdaibai.
  • Cartagena: The activity carried out helped with the environmental rehabilitation of Cabezo Ventura as part of the Sierra Minera Verde project, which aims to promote the conservation of biodiversity and adapt the habitat to mitigate the effects of climate change on flora and fauna.
  • Gijón: The volunteer activity took place in San Juan de la Nieva, a 500 metre long sandy beach with strong waves, which is highly exposed to the north-easterly winds and has been declared a natural monument. The activity consisted of collecting rubbish.
  • In Seville, employees had the opportunity to take part in an inclusive agricultural day at Alamillo Park. They collaborated with individuals who have cerebral palsy in tending to urban gardens.
  • Valencia: A day wholly dedicated to the environment took place in the public forest between Llombai and Catadau. At this event, Enagás employees actively participated in cleaning the area and planting native forest species.
  • Zaragoza: In an endeavour to promote inclusivity, Enagás employees engaged in an initiative at the Torre de Treviño Farm School, collaborating with individuals with disabilities to improve the environment.
  • Madrid: a total of six volunteering activities took place, including two gardening and basketball workshops for individuals with intellectual disabilities, two workshops focused on digital skills and preventing social isolation among the elderly, and two days dedicated to reforestation and biodiversity recovery.
