A set of procedures and good practices adopted by organisations with the aim of preventing, detecting and managing any potential breaches of criminal compliance (violation of voluntarily accepted regulations or standards).
In 2020, EADA established a Compliance policy, signed by all staff members at the institution, which defines a Compliance and Criminal Compliance Management System aligned with the strategic objectives of EADA.
The main objectives of the system include:
Analysing conduct that may generate a potential breach of compliance
Establishing prevention mechanisms
Implementing control, correction, investigation and sanction measures
Monitoring the effectiveness of the policies, measures, plans, rules, processes and controls currently in place
The scope of application of Compliance includes the Board of Trustees, General Management and the Steering Committee as well as all members of the EADA Community: staff members, collaborators, associated faculty staff, corporate clients, representatives, suppliers, business partners, participants and alumni.
This system is the result of the criminal risk analysis that could hypothetically be generated in different areas of the business (education and hospitality) as well as different parts of the Foundation.
At EADA, we have designed our Equality Plan III, with the aim of broadening the scope of analysis and action by incorporating trade union input. This plan includes 21 initiatives to be developed throughout its duration and, in conjunction with the internal ad-hoc working group, aims to transfer these initiatives to the classroom.
Transparency and accountability
We are committed to being a transparent institution: we annually publish our activity and results for our stakeholders. This information is available on our website: Transparency Guide, regulations, social balance sheet, code of ethics, annual report and financial report.
At EADA, procurement and contract decisions take into account environmental and social sustainability criteria.
The aim of EADA’s procurement policy is to develop our relationship with the third sector in the purchase of sustainable and ethical products. Here are some examples:
- Vending area on Campus 1 Aragó. During the tender process, priority was given to companies offering local and organic products.
- Welcome Kits for EADA participants are mainly based on sustainable, organic and local products.
