TALGO AWARD FOR TECHNOLOGICAL INNOVATION

Since 1999, the Talgo Award for Technological Innovation has promoted the idea of motivating and optimising technologies, mainly in the railway field. It is an award open to anyone who can face up to the challenge we propose: to create an innovative, feasible and technologically advanced project.

On 12 September 2018, the UN General Assembly of the Global Compact Network Spain included Talgo as a member of its Executive Committee, and, since then, our company has been adhered to this institution. Today, the UN Global initiative forms part of Talgo´s Corporate Responsibility strategy, which aims to create values for employees, shareholders, customers and suppliers, as well as to contribute to the evolution and growth of communities we are present in.

Currently, the Spanish Network has 2335 enterprises adhered to this Corporate Social Responsibility initiative. Since foundation, it has become one of the first Global Compact national platforms and a Local network with the highest number of signatories. Its management model and organizational structure are of the most advanced within the Global Compact, and distinguish by the variety of activities and tools designed to foster the implementation of the Ten principles of the UN Global Compact in the areas of human rights, labor, environment and anti-corruption.

The UN Global Compact is an ethical commitment initiative aimed at encouraging enterprises and businesses worldwide to implement the Ten principles as an integral part of their strategy and operations. Over 12500 companies in more than 160 countries are currently adhered to the largest corporate social responsibility initiative in the world.
