Committed to people, the environment and society

"The world has not been given to us simply to contemplate it but to transform it."

J.M Arizmendiarrieta

In Danobatgroup our actions rest on the principles of transparency, participation and efficiency in order to transmit fundamental values to people, the environment and society. We are an active part of the communities we serve and with whom we collaborate. We strive to boost initiatives to improve culture, the environment, employment and welfare.

For more than 60 years now, a part of the profits is invested in activities to provide value-added employment and progress in society.

Personal development and generation of employment

DANOBATGROUP is a socio-corporate project based on people and their integral development that through entrepreneurial success pursues profitable and sustainable growth as well as wealth and employment in the environment.

EXPERTS, HIGHLY QUALIFIED AND WITH A VISION OF THE FUTURE

Our success is based on the commitment and active involvement of our highly-qualified professionals. Continuous learning is an essential part of our work team. We are constantly improving our skills and knowledge to always keep you one step ahead.

Social commitment

We are strongly committed to society and provide support to numerous initiatives to boost and sustain a social economy in the geographical scope of our entrepreneurial actions. Furthermore we endeavour to foster socio-cooperative and vocational education and training as well as support and encourage socio-cultural and welfare activities, stimulate solidarity and inter-cooperation. Finally we strive to enhance research and development by supporting initiatives that bring about new activities and special interest projects.

Within this area Danobatgroup launched in 2018 the program "Elkarrekin Eragin" to support the development of social transformation projects through the active participation of workers from the group´s cooperatives. In 2021, the second edition of this programme was launched, in which we are involved over the next three years working on these three programmes:

 

Danobatgroup will contribute to the renovation of the Santa Clara Convent in Elgoibar, which has been made available by the town council to the Autism Association of the Gipuzkoa province (GAUTENA) to improve the services of the organisation in the Deba valley. The project intends to adapt the convent facilities to give the families a larger and more suitable space for organising the carer respite programmes of the Association, convert the facilities into a connection point between the entity and the families in the region, and offer older people that are in day care centres a large green space to join programmes especially geared to them.

The Walk On Project (WOP) Foundation is committed to funding research projects to develop therapies for neurodegenerative diseases and raise social awareness. Danobatgroup will continue the initiative started in the previous edition of "Elkarrekin Eragin" to boost research in neurodegenerative diseases and support clinical trials of a new stem cell-based therapy for leukodystrophy in children.

 

BIZIPOZA, is an organisation made up of 35 associations aimed at promoting the welfare of families and children with special needs. Danobatgroup will participate in the development of an educational guide to strengthen awareness of the different socio-economic realities and to advance in the construction of an inclusive society. The group also supports the launch of the initiative "Local Volunteering: BIZIPOZA kilometre zero", a project that seeks to promote local solidarity.

Driving the Basque language

From the very beginning, DANOBATGROUP has been aware of the importance of the Basque language and culture.

We are involved in a number of initiatives that are taken in the towns where our workshops are located, and we provide support for these initiatives.

Currently, DANOBATGROUP has schemes in place to intensify the use of Basque, to influence employee motivation and to improve knowledge of Basque.
