Within the framework of the HISPASAT’s Corporate Social Responsibility Plan, the company has created a Social Action Plan that includes actions related to the benefits that our activity can provide for society, both in moments when there are specific needs and within the framework of long-term and sustainable projects.
HISPASAT’s Social Action Plan is structured around the following strategic aims:
In our current society, in which Information and Communications Technology (ICT) plays an essential role in the economic and social development of communities, organisations and countries, guaranteeing universal access to ICT is crucial.
Satellites are essential for making telecommunications universal, facilitating access to basic services and promoting new possibilities for economic and social development anywhere on the planet, even in areas that terrestrial networks cannot access.
HISPASAT is aware of the importance of its business in this area and seeks to collaborate in development in the following areas:
New communication technologies are also closely related to new education models with specific needs in this area. Therefore, HISPASAT seeks to collaborate on the development of distance learning in the most underprivileged areas.
Satellites are the fundamental infrastructure for the spread of culture and the promotion of sporting activities, both of which are areas in which HISPASAT seeks to carry out joint projects:
At 36,000 km above the Earth’s surface, satellites are a clear example of overcoming barriers and reaching areas where other technologies cannot. With this philosophy, HISPASAT seeks to participate in programmes or social events that promote the integration of people with disabilities into society, with the goal of helping them overcome their own barriers, develop their potential and realise their dreams. Therefore, HISPASAT provides aid to projects that are in line with this philosophy by financing events, such as sporting events and others, with the goal of integrating people with disabilities.
