Social Impact
Social Impact & Special AchievementsVertiga employs local people, thus providing decent work for a disadvantaged community isolated on an island with very little work available. 28 people are usually employed in groups of 10 with the aim to dispatch the work equitably in the group. Vertiga has installed the first toilet on the island and provides water disinfection to insure access to drinkable water for all. They are also providing a bigger boat which makes access to the mainland easier.

Vertiga is developing short sustainable supply chains helping local communities. The company is committed to social responsibility and organic farming.
