Community investment

At Banco Santander, we run local initiatives to contribute to the economic, social and sustainable development of the communities where we operate. 

We work closely with the third sector (NGOs and other not-for-profit organizations) at meetings, interviews, forums and awareness days to identify collaborative opportunities  to address the real needs of society.

Our main lines of action are:

Support for social wellfare

We encourage culture and knowledge through programmes and initiatives that promote art, literature, education and talent.

Corporate Volunteering

  • We run many of our initiatives and programmes in close collaboration with employees and customers. Volunteering is part of our culture and a key element of our social investment strategy. The  bank’s Corporate Culture Policy includes the Standard for Corporate Volunteering that governs the group. 
  • Our social commitment and our mission as a bank to help people and businesses prosper are fully consistent with the UN’s Sustainable Development Goals on promoting decent work and economic growth, fostering quality education and contributing to improving the health and wellbeing of the communities we serve.
