corporate business activities


Explanation:
"Social" here refers to the corporation or "sociedad." Thus, the translation would be "promote corporate business activities to protect the company's assets."

Good luck.

company shares??


Explanation:
Without further context, it is impossible to give a definitive answer, but I think that "acciones sociales" may actually be the company's shares, rather than its actions. For example, they might want to promote (or push) their shares (=raise the market capitalization of the company) so as to "defend" their assets (i.e., in view of the financial statements, etc.).

Just a guess. Happy New Year.
