Retorn was set up in 2006 by a group of employee volunteers and it promotes and runs social responsibility and sustainability projects in three main areas: society, environment and employees. Because the scheme is voluntary, the volunteers have the chance to choose and directly administer the activities.
The purpose of this scheme is to put in place social measures and programmes proposed by employees, encourage socially responsible values among employees and enable them to directly manage the company's social initiatives through a budget specifically earmarked for this purpose.
