We aspire to be a business with a positive impact on its local environment and throughout the entire value chain, one that contributes to improving the overall well-being of all the parts of society we have an effect on.
With this programme we hope to have a positive impact on the communities our business directly or indirectly affects. We will work to reduce inequalities, promote healthy habits, restore local ecosystems and ultimately become an inclusive business, in this way contributing to society as a whole.
We contribute to making the local economy more dynamic by hiring local suppliers from Tarragona and Catalonia, and also by offering stable employment to 88.6 % of the workers in the immediate surrounding area.

WE PARTICIPATED IN THE PROGRAMME REPTE EXPERIMENTA
We signed a collaboration agreement with the URV foundation to support the programme Repte Experimenta (Experiment Challenge), under the slogan “Interest and vocation in Science is not innate, it’s created”, as a means of acquainting primary and secondary school students with scientific experimentation.
WE CELEBRATED WORLD HEART DAY
For World Heart Day, ELIX collaborators participated in the “11th People’s Race for the Heart” and the “1st Virtual Race”, organised by the Spanish Heart Foundation with the aim of promoting physical exercise as a fundamental pillar of good cardiovascular health.
WE RENEWED OUR COOPERATION COMMITMENT WITH THE CORAVANT FOUNDATION
Coravant is a foundation for congenital heart disease which operates in Catalonia offering psychosocial assistance to children, teens and adults with heart problems since infancy/early childhood. Our commitment is an economic donation to support some of their social projects such as the AventuresCor camps.
