Generate positive impacts
Commitment to the Sustainable Development Goals (SDG)
In 2015, the United Nations approved the resolution of the 2030 Agenda which includes 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDG) and its 169 challenges.
The initially outlined proposal was clear and ambitious: to implement these goals in order to build a more sustainable planet and more prosperous and inclusive societies which do not leave anyone behind. Definitively, to invest in the joint solution of humanity’s critical problems.
In this context with our firm commitment to sustainable development, we understand that an organization must not only seek economic profitability but must also be an active agent and create positive social and environmental impacts for the planet.
This is why our strategy is based on the SDG, which influences all of our decision-making processes to accordingly contribute to our Sustainable Development based on our daily decisions which are completely aligned with the SDG and the 2030 Agenda.
