The Juan de Lanuza School receives a new award, the RSA Plus Seal, which adds to the already achieved, RSA, awarded by the Government of Aragon.
The Juan de Lanuza School obtained a new acknowledgement, the RSA Plus, which adds to the already achieved, RSA Plus, awarded by the Government of Aragon. This recognizes organizations that have taken a step forward in promoting Social Responsibility by encouraging conciliation or the promotion of culture.
The award was collected by the principal of the School, Pilar Fernández, on the 18th of December in the Auditorium of Zaragoza .As it was mentioned in the award ceremony, from the 585 companies that have the RSA Seal, only 63 have the RSA Plus, which is why our center has been featured in Heraldo de Aragón where they mention about our work in relation to Social Responsibility. They explain, for example, that since 1978 , Juan de Lanuza stands out as a pioneer in the commitment to sustainability, creativity as an added value, in the application of knowledge and in constant improvement. In addition, it stands out for its international nature and its commitment to sustainable human development.
School already had the RSA Seal since 2016, and within the framework of Social Responsibility, the center has always stood out for non-discrimination and equal opportunities and, particularly, for facilitating the reconciliation of working life and family as well as the dissemination of the Aragonese culture.
In the words of Pilar Fernández , director of the center,to Heraldo de Aragón in relation to the news of the recognition received that: “We made the first report two years ago and our work was recognized with the award of the seal of Corporate Social Responsibility. Then, continuing with our strategic line, and responding to the demands of the Government of Aragon, which called for greater commitment within the framework of the RSA, promoting, at least, two out of four points – volunteering, conciliation, equality or promotion of culture-, we started inmediately “.
Pilar Fernández also commented to Heraldo de Aragón what are the goals from now on: “Next year we plan to include the other two points required. Our staff currently has more women than men – of the five members of the management team, four of us are women, and of course there is equality in work conditions”.
On the other hand, the press focuses on fact that Juan de Lanuza promotes volunteer actions, “since last year volunteering is encouraged among students over 16 years of age. “We have also implemented the ‘Young Thinkers’ program, which inculcates values and philosophical concepts from the first year of primary school so that this leads both to debate and to volunteering with a greater involvement, “said the center’s director.
Regarding the commitment that the School has with the environment, Pilar Fernández said: “When designing our strategic plan, we thought of a healthy society, focusing on providing training to our students in both environmental and social responsibility and giving importance to the reduction of waste, to its management, to the respect to the use of the energies and the smaller consumption of them “. “We focus on economic, social and environmental sustainability. As an example of the first, we have replaced the 70 windows of the entire south facade of the building using the construction system ‘passivhaus’ “.
