: the overall “outstanding” features of the project shall be valued while taking account of the quality and experience of the team, economic and organisational feasibility and maturity.
Innovation: knowledge-based innovative projects (not only scientific) that lead to changes (not only technological) and generate value (not only economic).
Disadvantaged groups: specific initiatives with concrete goals geared towards people with fewer resources, social problems and disabilities.
Sustainability: the projects and entities that manage them must be technically, environmentally and financially feasible and sustainable in the long term, since the goal is to produce a long-lasting social impact.
Participation: maximise the social impact of the projects managed through social entities. Altamar Foundation encourages the participation of Altamar’s team in these projects; therefore, they should be open to their involvement.
Network of partnerships: the cooperation with third parties should create value, and Altamar Groups’ values should be made visible.
Ethics, transparency and best practices: in addition to assessing the ethics fibre, the non-profit entity should be certified by Fundación Lealtad or another respected independent body, or should have obtained or be actively working to obtain a quality certification.
Focus on measurable results: monitoring and assessment of each project’s progress based on pre-defined goals and impact indicators. Measuring social impact (metrics for evaluation of results against the objectives set) is essential for the project’s selection, financing and reporting processes.
