Partnership and sponsorship initiatives
Logista is involved with different associations linked to the Group’s activities, in order to collaborate on initiatives linked to its business area, or to promote transparency and corporate responsibility.
For example, Logista is a founding member of Grupo Español para el Crecimiento Verde (Spanish group for green growth), a sponsor of the Madrid Futuro association, and participates annually in CDP initiatives.
- Grupo Español para el Crecimiento Verde works to translate to society and to government its vision of a sustainable economic growth model compatible with the efficient use of natural resources.
- The Madrid Futuro non-profit association grew out of the desire of businesses and organisations to boost Madrid’s recovery following the health and socioeconomic impact of the pandemic.
At sector level, Logista is also involved with associations such as the AESEG (Spanish association of generic drugs), the AEFI (Spanish Fintech association) and the AECOC (association of manufacturers and distributors).
