Social Responsibility is part of our company DNA and everyone is involved in a certain way: clients, suppliers, employees and our social & physical environment. This responsibility must be applied inside the company first to generate a positive impact outside the company later.
At Vayoil, our employees are our differential value: beyond numbers, we care about people and all of them with different talents who works together for the same goal.

The objective is to reconcile business efficiency with principles such as support, social justice and respect for the environment. This is a daily work focusing on development, sustainable and consistency in the long term.

Responsibility and Social Commitment

Social Responsibility is the answer provided by a citizen or a company to the reality of their everyday lives. It relates to the decisions they make and the actions they take in order to live in society, as an obligation to act with dignity and respect and, above all, to foster support policies geared towards society’s weakest members.
Social commitment is the voluntary contribution made by an individual or organization in the face of the ethical demands put forward by a fair world. Thus, social commitment involves working daily and investing an extra effort to let our society be a zone of free coexistence, both harmonious and healthy.

For these reasons, we are aligning with the Principles of United Nations Global Compact:

  • We support and respect the protection of internationally proclaimed human rights.
  • We are not complicit in human rights abuses.
  • We uphold the freedom of association and the effective recognition of the right to collective bargaining.
  • We reject any form of forced and compulsory labour.
  • We respect the minimal age stablished by the law in all countries and we never have employed children under 14 years old.
  • We are against any discrimination in the workplace (especially by gender, race or political affiliation)
  • We support and promote precautionary methods regarding to environmental challenges.
  • We will undertake initiatives to promote greater environmental responsibility.
  • We encourage the development and diffusion of environmentally friendly-technologies.
  • We work against corruption in all its forms, including extortion and bribery.


For ten years, our ties with the community and the economic aid we allocate have been intended for such social partnerships as: Asociación Integra SOS, who help those at risk of social exclusion; Taller Mare Mazzarello, who make clothes for poor children in Third World countries by turning our contribution of products and material into children’s clothing; and Fundación Amica through their center Campus Diversia. This center is a project promoted by the AMICA Foundation in collaboration with other organizations concerned with individuals with disabilities and chronic diseases. It serves as reference for social inclusion, employment and environmental education.

The different axes of the Project converge and have a direct impact on all aspects of inclusion: social, educational, cultural, work and environmental.

Vayoil plays an active role within the sector of work training and environmental employment. The primary goal in this area is professional training for people with diverse types of disabilities, so as to facilitate their subsequent entry into the labour force of companies linked to environmental activities. These activities are related to the Project, focusing on the care for the environment and the restoration of green spaces implemented at La Finca de Mijares, in Yátova; as well as the enhancement of those productive ones carried out in the region.

Another initiative that our company has executed is to sponsor the Spanish Cystic Fibrosis Federation, an organization dedicated to researching this disease labelled as rare and to helping families and individuals affected by or suffering it. Our corporate funding is geared not only to support the study of this genetic disorder but also to help improve the quality of life of patients with cystic fibrosis as well as family functioning in children and young adults with CF.

Our firm also makes a tangible contribution to the social initiatives addressed by Barcelona’s Diocesan Caritas (Cáritas Diocesana de Barcelona) through the agreement entered into by the said Diocese and FELAC (the Spanish Federation of Associations of Manufacturers of Equipment for the Hospitality, Association and Related Industries, as per its Spanish acronym). VAYOIL, as a member company of FELAC, has provided textile machinery to some of the centers run by this charitable institution; such as day care centers for the elderly, shelters for victims of domestic violence or abuse, mother and child care centers or housing assistance for the homeless. This initiative, a part of the mutual accord between the social service organization and FELAC, is included in the “Companies with a Heart” programme.
