Trelleborg Wheel Systems takes action in Spain for a better future

Local entities at Trelleborg Wheel Systems joined forces all over Spain to embrace the future by taking care of both people and the environment to contribute to a better society through different initiatives spanning wildlife preservation, social inclusion, and sports.

Sharing the same values, Trelleborg Wheel Systems teamed up with the Mona Foundation, a nonprofit organization working for primate welfare and conservation in Spain. The foundation has a rescue and rehabilitation center near Girona, Spain, surrounded by nature which is home to rescued primates. It is also a place to understand and respect wild animals through its Primatology – Research and Training Program.

Xavier Benzekri, Executive Director Mona Foundation, stated: “The great contribution from Trelleborg Wheel Systems supported our workers with materials for daily activities and the tire donation created playful moments for this threatened species. We’re proud to partner with companies sharing the same objective for the future”.

To preserve the local marine environment and promote the Catalan coastline, Trelleborg Wheel Systems supports Anèl·lides, an organization created and founded by women that are dedicated to marine environmental education and outreach. Their aim is to raise awareness on how important it is to respect the marine environment so that all people can enjoy it.

To contribute to social integration, Trelleborg Wheel Systems works in cooperation with the renowned Club Natació Atlètic-Barceloneta (CNAB). Founded in 1913, the CNAB has become a state reference in sport with its multiple national titles in the last two decades and the Champions League victory in 2014. Joining forces with this well-known local club, swimming and water polo sports – as the most practised in Spain – will be promoted as a method for community initiatives and meaningful recreational activities for various groups of people.

Hand in hand with the sports category, it’s the collaboration with La Fageda, a social project based on its own business, with the mission of improving life quality and social integration of people at risk through real and decent work. By providing tires and other equipment, people living in La Fageda can recreate a real “society” model living, where work is the means through which people can actively contribute to the environment where they operate by providing products and services.

Ramón Martínez, Country Manager Spain and Portugal at Trelleborg Wheel Systems commented: “We strongly believe that each one of us can take small actions and make a big difference. Giving back to the local communities is our commitment to a better society and the collaboration with these four entities fully represents our mission.”
