Fundación Corporación Tecnológica de Andalucía has an environmental management system in accordance with the ISO 14001:2015 standard for the promotion of research, technological development and innovation projects.

CTA has once again successfully passed, for another year, the external audit conducted by AENOR of our environmental management system. This annual event is a great opportunity to improve our management system and evidence of our commitment to the environment and sustainable development.

CTA as a socially responsible entity, has implemented since 2011 an environmental management system in accordance with the reference standard UNE – EN ISO 14001: 2004 and updated in accordance with the UNE – EN ISO 14001:2015 standard in 2017.

The environmental management system implemented in CTA allows:

  • To ensure compliance with environmental legislation, regulations and standards applicable to the activities carried out and to adopt any voluntary environmental commitments considered to be of interest.
  • Identify the environmental impacts related to CTA’s activity and reduce or eliminate them or enhance them, if they are positive.
  • Participate in innovation projects with a clear environmental and sustainable development focus.

We therefore invite our partners, suppliers, employees and other stakeholders to join CTA in this environmental commitment and make available to all of them information regarding our management system and sustainable projects. You may contact
