In the same way that Construcciones Rubau has, Arema, as a group company, will implement a total quality system in 2022, in accordance with the European model EFQM (European Foundation for Quality Management), which allows the implementation of continuous improvement systems in the organization and the structuring of processes with proven effectiveness and efficiency.
Thanks to RUBAU’s important commitment to quality, and now Arema’s commitment to quality as a company of its group, the objective is to certify the system implemented with the ISO 9001 standard.
RUBAU was one of the first companies in Spain to commit to prevention management and, since 1996, it has had an occupational risk prevention management system that is fully integrated into the company’s general management, currently certified under the ISO 45001 standard.
Following the same policy, Arema, as a group company, is committed to the implementation of the IMS and its certification with the ISO 45001 standard in compliance with the policies established for it.
AREMA is firmly committed to the respect and conservation of the environment, a fact that allows it to develop highly innovative projects. Its objective in this area is focused on the company’s continuous performance to improve the environment, through the implementation and certification of the ISO 14001 standard.
The values and ethical principles internationally recognized in the Universal Declaration of Human Rights, as well as the strict compliance with current legislation, constitute the basis of RUBAU’s Ethical Code to which Arema has adhered as a company of the Group. This Ethical Code takes into account the principle of criminal liability of legal entities recognised in the Spanish legal system and prevents and prohibits the existence of behaviour on the part of legal representatives, managers, employees or any person who is under the authority of personnel of Arema, whose actions may give rise to the liability on company’s part. It is the fundamental rule that should govern the behaviour of employees of the company, in the development of their professional activity as well as in maintaining relationships with third parties. The general principles and the values contained in this Code may be extended by policies and procedures specific to each of these materias.
Corruption and fraud slow down economic development and are detrimental to social justice and the rule of law, causing serious damage to the economy and society, and in many cases facilitating the operations of organized crime. RUBAU, established as a benchmark for its firm commitments to ethical principles, assumes the responsibility of actively participating in the challenge of preventing and fighting corruption and fraud in all its areas of activity. The Policy for the prevention of crimes and against corruption and fraud, to which Arema has adhered as a company of the Group, is intended to project to all Arema managers and employees, as well as to third parties who are related to the company, a message of outright opposition to the commission of any act unlawful criminal. This policy accredits AREMA’s commitment to permanently monitoring and punishing fraudulent acts and conduct, maintaining effective communication and awareness mechanisms for all employees and developing a business culture of ethics and honesty, and sends a message resounding opposition to corruption and fraud in all its manifestations.
