Unicaja Banco has signed an agreement with the Confederación de Empresarios de Andalucía (CEA, Andalusian Confederation of Business Owners) to collaborate in the launch of the Business Bureau for Compliance with the 2030 Agenda (OECA, Oficina Empresarial para el Cumplimiento de la Agenda 2030), promoted by CEA. Its goal is to coordinate the actions required for the compliance by the private sector with the United Nations’ Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).

 

The collaboration agreement has been signed by the Chairman of Unicaja Banco, Manuel Azuaga, and by the President of the Andalusian Confederation of Business Owners, Javier González de Lara. It reflects the close relationship between both institutions, which share the common goals of promoting the business fabric, facilitating the economic, social and environmental boost and supporting employment in Andalusia.

 

The OECA, a project within the Expert Committee of the Sustainable Development Goals (SDG), created by the CEA, intends to be an economic, business and social observatory with the role of coordinating actions for the compliance with the SDGs by the private sector.

 

In particular, one of the main roles of OECA will be leading the implementation of the 2030 Agenda in the Andalusian society and especially in companies, to favour the general wellbeing and to collaborate to the generation of wealth and employment in the region.

 

In sum, it intends to implement joint action lines to enable a productive business fabric to enjoy the opportunities brought by a management that is respectful to the environment, to society and to good governance, favouring the creation and consolidation of new sustainable companies, and the transformation of those already existing to adopt this model, in compliance with the 2030 Agenda, which includes the UN’s 17 SDGs.

 

Action Plan

 

In order to achieve its goals, the OECA will set an action plan that will include, among other initiatives, actions for promotion and awareness through the organization or participation in forums, workshops, seminars, etc.

 

In particular, at least the II Business Forum on Sustainable Development Goals will be organized in Malaga, as well as an annual edition of the prize on SDG implementation in companies.

 

For Unicaja Banco, businesses in general and SMEs in particular are key groups in its financing policy. One of the bank’s priority commercial axes is providing funding to businesses, which are a key driver to make the economy more dynamic and to stimulate job creation.

 

Unicaja Banco CSR

 

As reflected in its Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR), Unicaja Banco is committed to compliance with the United Nation’s Sustainable Development Goals.

 

Unicaja Banco signed the Global Compact and is member of the Spanish UN Global Compact Network, and it also participates in the International Training Center for Authorities and Leaders (Cifal) in Malaga, belonging to United Nations Institute for Training and Research (UNITAR).

 

CEA (www.cea.es) is a regional, confederative and inter-sectorial organization. It is composed by institutions from the eight Andalusian provinces and is part of the CEOE (Spanish Confederation of Employer’s Organizations). In particular, it is formed by more than 750 associations from all over Andalusia and includes every sector and type of business (large companies, SMEs and freelancers).
