Indra develops altruistic projects for various entities as part of its social commitment

The technology company, a world leader in sustainability according to the Dow Jones Sustainability Index, promotes and participates in solidarity initiatives with social impact, in collaboration with universities and third sector entities, as part of its social action and ESG commitments 

As a leading company in global sustainability, Indra is committed to the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals and to the development of technology with a positive impact on the environment and people. As part of its corporate responsibility and social action, Indra and its subsidiary Minsait historically promote and participate in non-profit projects with and for social entities and knowledge institutions. 

As part of its commitment to sustainable development, Indra raises awareness of the importance of good ESG (environmental, social and governance) practices by promoting and participating in all kinds of events and initiatives, and by training its own professionals and suppliers. 

Indra and its subsidiary Minsait collaborate altruistically with different universities and institutions in different areas related to sustainability and talent recruitment. For example, they collaborate in initiatives aimed at technological training for employment and highly specialised technological training through different chairs and postgraduate courses. They are also committed to fostering STEAM vocations, especially in children and adolescents. 

For Indra, the best way to contribute to the SDGs is through technology. The development of websites and applications for associations and NGOs, such as a CRM or the Integra Foundation website, the creation of the Spanish register of people affected by spinal muscular atrophy or the development of a website to facilitate online education for children with neurological disabilities are some examples. 

In collaboration with Fundación Universia and different universities, Indra promotes the development of technologies that contribute to improve the social and labour integration of people with disabilities. Recently, the winning initiatives were announced in the VIII Call for grants for research projects in Accessible Technologies launched by both entities and aimed at research teams, centres and business schools of Spanish universities. 

Indra has also created a social entrepreneurship launcher, Ventures4Inclusion, together with the FDI Foundation and HandsOn Spain, to promote the development of technological projects that support entrepreneurship and access to employment for people with disabilities. The winning proposals receive an economic prize to develop their projects, but also participate in a process of accompaniment with expert volunteers from Indra and Minsait. 

Indra also donates technological equipment. For example, on the occasion of the coronavirus crisis, the company donated more than 10,000 tablets to children at social risk in all of Spain's autonomous communities to help them with their schoolwork after the closure of educational centres. 

In total, over the last two years Indra and Minsait have collaborated on projects that incubate more than 30 universities and chairs, including the ‘Extraordinary Chair for Competitive Social Transformation’ at the Complutense University of Madrid, whose development was completed in the second half of 2022.
