CSR at El Corte Inglés

Start main content

The Social Responsibility of El Corte Inglés is part of its management strategy, a factor of competitiveness and an essential element in the policy of linking to society that it has had since its origins. 

El Corte Inglés has been working for years to make the planet more sustainable and forge a better future for everyone. To that end, we have taken action on several fronts to foster decent and responsible manufacturing conditions, rationalise resource consumption and waste generation and tighten our bond with society and the environment.


The new 2021-2025 Sustainability and CSR Master Plan is clearly designed to place sustainability at the heart of strategy going forward and it is based on the European Green Deal and its carbon neutrality target for 2050; it is also articulated around the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals for 2030 and the milestones established in the Paris Agreement on Climate Change for 2050.

Our Sustainability and CSR Master Plan is structured into five key lines of initiative:

  • Responsible production and consumption
  • “Green” digitalisation
  • Climate action
  • Corporate culture, equality, diversity and community 
  • Strong corporate governance

All group companies have made their commitment as socially responsible companies, seeking a smooth and constant relationship with all stakeholders with which they have a connection.
