Code of conduct

Within our corporate strategy, we establish the improvement of management efficiency as one of the strategic lines to be developed, for which it is essential to carry out effective use of information systems. The use of information systems and, specifically, the sharing of information, pose a challenge in relation to the security of such information.

The security of the information is constituted by all the technical, human, material and organizational elements necessary to guarantee an adequate management of the information, safety measures are articulated to reduce the possibility that the threats materialize and so that the security incidents are detected and deal on time and do not seriously affect the information that is handled or the services provided, allowing its rapid restoration.

These information security guidelines respond to the need to preserve the confidentiality, integrity and availability of the information handled in the organization.

The objectives of linguistic diversity management are:

  • To respect the use of the local language of each plant and facilitate the communication relationship between plants.
  • To ensure effective communication with external stakeholders.
  • To promote dynamics in favour of Basque in the plants of the Basque Country with the aim of achieving normalization.

The following general criteria will be followed in the three main areas of this language policy:

  • Linguistic landscape and corporate image:
    • The local language will be prioritized and, in the general locations of the plant, also English.
  • External relations:
    • The language chosen by the client in both the commercial relationship and in projects and services will have priority.
    • With external stakeholders, the relationship will be in the local language or in English and, in the Basque Country, the use of Basque will be encouraged.
  • Internal relationships:
    • In Basque Country plants, the use of Basque will be guaranteed.
    • All jobs have their corresponding linguistic profile.

To guarantee the normalization of Basque, the reference will be the Bikain evaluation.
