As a result, a CSR committee has been set up consisting of staff members of different scientific backgrounds and different tiers of the organization.

This committee has the role of an internal consultant to LGS, with the ultimate aim of integrating new actions by the company in the field of CSR, contributing voluntarily to society and strengthening it within the organization.

The core pillars of LGS CSR are a range of thematic areas such as transparency, safety and health, equal opportunities, environmental impact management, respect for rights, social inclusion and others, which through a global scope seek to offer the company investment for a better future.
