As a result of our good practices and the strategically planned achievement of different milestones within our Social and Environmental actions and Energy policy, we have consolidated different certifications: ISO 14001, EMAS, ISO 50001 to finally endorse the UN Global Compact. The United Nations Global Compact promotes corporate sustainability by implementing 10 universal principles of human rights and business, labor standards, environment and anti-corruption, favoring the Objectives of the Sustainable Development of the United Nations.

Labor sphere

Principle 3. Support the principles of freedom of Association and the right to collective bargaining.

Principle 4. Eliminate forced labor and mandatory.
