At bergner are committed to the challenge of promoting basic conditions for social sustainability.
Our goal is to guarantee equal opportunities for all, without exception, and to bring about a favourable environment which facilitates and enhances equal opportunities, non-discrimination and diversity. All in accordance with the current legislation in each country and following international best practice, including the provisions of the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) approved by the United Nations in these areas.
Bergner presents its Diversity manifesto: a set of action principles about diversity and inclusion which form part of the company's DNA and which aim to raise the awareness of employees and society about the importance of celebrating and respecting diversity.
With the aim of continuing to boost diversity and equal opportunities, at Bergner we are members of the main associations which promote diversity, thereby demonstrating the will to improve continuously to make equality a reality.
This plan governs and ensures that any action that must be taken is reported, monitored and addressed. This Plan includes procedures such as occupational risk assessments, planning of preventive activities, risk information, personal protective equipment, health and safety training for employees and health monitoring. We believe that the physical and mental health, safety and well-being of people are the most valuable assets. We are committed to developing and promoting a solid culture of safety throughout the Company, to guarantee a risk-free working environment in terms of health and safety.
We adhere to the Luxembourg Declaration, a charter of principles drawn up by the European Network for Workplace Health Promotion (ENWHP) which establishes the basic action guidelines and the reference framework for the proper management of people's health in the workplace.
The ENWHP document of principles that we subscribe too, establishes the promotion of health in the workplaces as a business strategy which aims to prevent occupational risks (including work-related illnesses, accidents, injuries, occupational diseases and stress) and to increase the individual ability of the working population to stay healthy and maintain their quality of life.
To carry out these initiatives, we work closely with the third sector (NGOs and other non-profit entities) with whom we maintain a constant and fluid dialogue. All of this aims to identify potential avenues for collaboration which enable us to contribute to the real needs of society.
We promote education and sport as fundamental tools to improve the quality of life of children and young people at risk of social exclusion.
That’s why Bergner works on different projects whose objective is to educate through sport in Europe and India.
FOOTBALL IS LIFE
We believe that education is the basis of a hopeful future, that's why we work in Mumbai.
Our aim is to provide a quality education to children under the age of six who live in Mumbai. This project is about preventing many of the children that attend the kindergartens financed by Bergner from falling into child trafficking networks.
This is all possible thanks to Bergner’s collaboration in the project.
The aim of educating as a way to prevent exclusion, is that children who have grown up without the support of their parents can have a home and quality education to give them the opportunity of having a better future.
Bergner has become a builder of the present. Thanks to Bergner’s collaboration, many children are able to live in a stable home with an SOS Mother.
Health is a fundamental right that we should all have access to. That’s why Bergner collaborates with initiatives that aim to improve the living conditions of the most vulnerable people, fighting for the right to health and for this issue to become a reality throughout the world.
Bergner is committed to breast cancer research with the aim of reducing its mortality rate. To do so, Bergner collaborates with two international organisations: Europa Donna and the CIMA Foundation
With an interest in child malnutrition in countries like India, we are currently working to ensure this group can receive nutrients and vitamin supplements to get better thanks to the project.
Bergner promotes internal solidarity and a culture of cooperation through the volunteering activities carried out by our employees.
Thanks to these activities, the quality of life of children at risk of exclusion improves through value-based education.
Concerned about the number of young women at risk of exclusion, we work on several projects whose aim is the social inclusion of these women in India and Europe.
Through these projects, Bergner offers women the opportunity to enter the labour market and thereby rebuild and improve their quality of life.
Committed to childhood and young people with physical and mental disabilities, we work towards their social inclusion through two projects: Together We can Tanger, Cocina Inclusiva (Inclusive Cooking).
The aim of these projects is to develop and strengthen children’s education in values through sport. Bergner opts for different ways of working with children with disabilities. Cooking is also used as a method of inclusion, through workshops which facilitate their entry into the labour market.
The project builds decent housing for vulnerable families whose houses don’t meet the adequate conditions of habitability and hygiene as well as for those who live in huts.
The beneficiaries get involved in the construction process and the women, by registerin the house in their names, are empowered.
One of the essential factors to achieve dignity and respect towards women is to have housing with solid, hygienic and safe conditions, as well as the social integration of families within the community.
