BarcelonaSail and Corporate Responsibility
Corporate Responsibility is a broad-based movement in business that encourages companies to take responsibility for the impact of their activities on customers, employees, and the environment.
Here’s what we’re doing to ensure that BarcelonaSail’s services are safe, and minimize our environmental impact, and some background on how we got to where we are today.
BarcelonaSails’s Mission Statement
Offer the best service, lead by example minimizing harm to the environment, use business to inspire and implement and invent solutions to the environmental crisis.
Why Corporate Responsibility
As a young sailor, I enjoyed the sea, the fresh air, the infinity of the ocean, and the beauty of the sea life below me. Over the years I sighted less mammals, fish, and turtles and more plastic. Therefore, I decided to create a sail tour company with values that reflect those of the sailors and surfers who realize that the sea is our source of life and needs to be treated carefully.
For us at BarcelonaSail, a love for the sea demands participation in the fight to save it, and to help reverse the steep decline in the overall environmental health of our planet. We donate our time organizing “plastic fishing” events to create awareness, and in 2018 we plan to do away with all plastic on board, to reverse the tide.
We know that our business activity – from lighting the office to cleaning the boats – creates pollution as a by-product. So, we work steadily to reduce those harms. We use electric motors in our sail boats, interview our suppliers on the environmental footprint of their products, our food is locally grown and packaged in recyclable carton and delivered by bike.
Staying true to our core values helps and inspires us to run and work for BarcelonaSail. And our focus on delivering the best service possible has brought us success in the marketplace.
