Society, culture and environment


The Bravante Group believes that going beyond its legal obligations and establishing ethical and transparent relationships with all its stakeholders (partners, suppliers, customers, employees, government and society) contributes to improving the quality of life of everyone involved and building a conscientious and responsible society. Therefore, Bravante is formally committed to social and environmental corporate responsibility. It implements this policy through concrete actions encompassing environmental preservation precautions when conducting business, internal and external socially responsible actions to encourage volunteering, and cultural projects related to shipbuilding and shipping.

Some of the programs developed by Bravante are described below.

This training spans the fields of information technology, languages, technical skills and culture. Since the project was launched on September 28, 2011, it has trained 540 people split into 30 groups. A further 800 other people are on the waiting list for next year’s courses.

Quality of Life Program
