About us


As much ethically as strategically, the concept and principles of Social Responsibility are becoming increasingly pervasive throughout the operations of companies and institutions both public and private towards achieving the goals which support its existence.

From a strategic standpoint, CSR principles and techniques have proved useful for various types of social organizations to generate social and economic value, as demonstrated by the notable increase in many organizations’ abilities to innovate, manage risk, and improve relations with society at large.

Universities, as institutions committed to social, economic, and cultural progress, naturally cannot ignore this trend. That is why in 2010 Inditex and the University of A Coruña (UDC) entered into a collaboration agreement whereby both institutions undertook to implement a Corporate Social Responsibility model at UDC, committing to launching initiatives designed to improve the strategy of UDC in the field of CSR and to bring this issue closer to the university students, faculty and staff and to the society at large, through lifelong learning, applied research, and the effective implementation of that research.

The Inditex –UDC Chair of Social Responsibility is one of the most relevant results of this strategy. It is a perfect example of the potential of cooperation between the university and the business sector. Born thanks to and under the coordination of the UDC´s Consello Social [Social Counci], the Inditex–UDC Chair of Social Responsibility is conceived as a space for thinking about, teaching about, and conducting applied research on the different aspects of CSR in public life, academia, business, and nonprofits.
