Costa Verde is a company certified under several standards, which, directly or indirectly, interact with “their” people. We’re referring, first of all, to OHSAS 18001, which proves that the well-being of employees is a priority in the organization.
At Costa Verde, we consider people as one of our main resources, if not the most important one. We believe that, by training and qualifying them, we’re making a high-return investment, thus contributing to sustainable development.
Therefore, since 2007, Costa Verde is also an accredited organization by DGERT – General Directorate for Employment and Labour Relations. This entity, which is part of the Ministry of Labour, Solidarity and Social Security, intends to support the design of employment policies. Professional training, certification of training entities, industrial relations and working conditions are also DGERT’s concerns. It is responsible for fostering collective procurement and for promoting social dialogue.
