Responsibility and sustainability

We are on our way to a business model that is 100% sustainable.

Even today, many issues need to be resolved as far as sustainability is concerned, and it is no easy matter to determine with total confidence whether a company is or is not sustainable. We apply all the methods we have to hand in order to generate a business model that is sustainable from a social, environmental and economic perspective.

At the moment we are working on three lines:

The impact of the Positive Nature projects. These are projects whose positive impact must be corroborated both technically and scientifically. Their effect on the ecosystems has to give rise to an improvement in the ecological conditions; they have to support their development.

We are working on how to measure this impact. It is easier to quantify certain aspects - such as carbon footprints - than others, but in other cases this is either not possible or not at all easy.

What’s more, carrying out the projects entails certain inherent risks which we bring to the table in a totally transparent way, as you can see in each and every case.

We are only just getting under way, and we are developing tools as we go along. We hope to constantly improve so that we can offer better and more quality information and so that we can take better decisions.

This is where we are leaving our footprint

Impact caused by our corporate activity. To make Mirlo possible, we have to mobilise resources and we have to generate output. We analyse our processes in order to identify the impacts that we generate in three areas:
  • Environmental: we want our consumption of resources and the negative environmental impacts to also be offset by the Positive Nature projects.
    What’s more, we are working with our suppliers to study the environmental footprint that they generate in the services that they provide us, and to try to offset it through the projects.

    Our objective is to achieve a positive balance, in other words, we want our footprint to be positive as well.
  • Economic: we look upon how we relate to our employees and our suppliers as an alliance which is of mutual benefit to all concerned. We take care to ensure that our employees’ salaries and the margins our suppliers charge are good for them also.
  • Social: our activity has to generate a positive impact at a local level: it has to generate employment, add value to rural activities and shed light on the cultural and natural values of the local communities. To do so we choose suppliers in areas that are close to the projects who can also benefit from Positive Nature projects.

Impact of our clients. We want to offer our clients the chance to transform their footprint and to make it a positive one. To do so, we endeavour to provide accurate information and tools that allow them to appreciate the impact they are making.
