The commitments undertaken by Grupo Libra are in accordance with the Vision for Sustainability and the principles of the Global Compact. There are many new technology projects and investments that reinforce these commitments, but the most important thing is growing engagement of our personnel.
Grupo Libra is the first company in the port sector to adopt standards proposed by the Global Reporting Initiative (GRI) in developing the Sustainability Report. This attitude confirms the Group's commitment to seek results both increasing economic, social, and as for the environment.
The Vision for Sustainability was built together. With the participation of top executives of the Group, we determined the main focus of activity and the establishment of strategies and investments.
Grupo Libra is a signatory of the Global Compact, an initiative promoted by the United Nations (UN) which has a membership of about 6500 enterprises and institutions in 135 countries.
The Social Investment Policy directs the contributions of Grupo Libra for the development of the surrounding communities, strengthen their sustainability strategies and consolidates its responsibility to society.
In 2011, Grupo Libra was the winner of the ECO Award, sponsored by the newspaper Valor Economico and the American Chamber of Commerce (AMCHAM), with one of their sustainability projects.
