During the event, Sellarés highlighted that thanks to the campaign "we are moving forward towards a better and more cohesive society". Laia Planagumà, director operational of the area of public and institutional client of Suara, also signed the manifesto on behalf of all the others entities, and took the reading of the manifesto. Planagumà recalled that some of the companies present, such as Suara or Lavola, already formed part of the hundred of entities promoters of the manifesto of Vilanova i la Geltrú.
The campaign has approached the companies, businesses and citizens the benefits of sustainable development, seeking balance between the local economic, social, environmental and cultural aspects, with the aim of achieving a better quality of life. The initiative responds to the idea of transmitting the advantages of being a socially responsible territory. The campaign, which also involved Respon.cat and the social and solidarity-based Economy Network of Manlleu (which Suara is part), included a breakfast with businessmen and a cup of coffee with the Manlleu’s Trade Association MAB.
