Vox has attacked Mercadona to celebrate the eighth anniversary of their commitment to Agenda 2030 and the Sustainable Development Goals (SDG), criticizing at the same time that the company chaired by Juan Roig “is dedicated to carrying out political campaigns” that, in the opinion of Santiago Abascal’s party, threaten the Spanish countryside and industry.
In a message on social networks, collected by Europa Press, Vox explained that they have “always” defended Spanish companies “when they were objects of extremist political attacks.” However, the group has expressed its surprise after Mercadona, in its opinion, “dedicates itself to political campaigns” and “raises” the SDGs, which are “threatening our countryside, our industry and the progress of all Spaniards.” .
“Let’s hope they rectify this propaganda,” Abascal’s people have claimed, responding to a Mercadona publication in which they assure that they will continue working “to achieve a more sustainable future.”
Since 2011, the company has been a partner of the United Nations Global Compact and works to respond to the Sustainable Development Goals.
As explained on its website, Mercadona has launched “different actions that help meet and promote most” of the SDGs. Among them is “the elimination of poverty, quality education, equality, the defense of the environment or the design of sustainable cities.” “The company promotes responsible environmental, social and governance actions that positively impact the environments in which it is present,” he highlights.
