The Regenerative Practices of AgroAmerica: Innovating for a Sustainable Future
At AgroAmerica, we understand the importance of working today to ensure a better tomorrow. Our focus on regenerative practices sets the standard for responsible performance. These practices guarantee the production of sustainable and healthy foods and seek a positive impact on our environment and the surrounding communities.
Environmental Management and Commitment Policy
Our Environmental Management and Commitment Policy is framed by this approach and prioritizes the preservation and restoration of ecosystems. Below, we detail how we are implementing each area of our policy:
Environmental Quality Management
Through proactive and responsible practices, we work to minimize and prevent negative environmental impacts and enhance positive impacts. We achieve this through comprehensive solid waste management, functional wastewater treatment systems, water recirculation for various processes, and employee awareness training, among other practices and processes.
We also avoid damage and ensure the regeneration of affected areas with tools for environmental assessment, control and monitoring. Our aim is to engage our stakeholders by transferring knowledge and sharing experiences to promote best practices at all levels.
Sustainable Management of Natural Heritage
The conservation of biodiversity in watersheds near our areas of influence is essential to maintain the balance of the ecosystem. In order to promote long-term intersectoral sustainability, we are committed to the protection and restoration of natural areas of interest, such as riparian zones and coastal marine ecosystems.
Our regeneration projects are designed to promote biodiversity in protected forest areas. We create green spaces that serve as a home to various species of flora and fauna and are also of interest to environmental institutions and communities.
Ongoing Training and Development
AgroAmerica knows that in order to transform our environment we need to strengthen the skills of our employees so that environmental management becomes an integral part of their daily work. In 2022, we trained more than 5,230 employees in environmental practices and policies through 17 environmental training workshops.
Certifications and Audits
Last year we demonstrated our dedication to best management practices through 24 audits conducted and approved by government agencies. We also carried out 33 internal environmental monitoring processes to ensure our commitment to ecological preservation.
The Future Is Regenerative
On our path to the future, our focus on regenerative practices will remain our guide, using a strategy that seeks to preserve, revitalize, and restore. We place people and nature at the center of our operations every step of the way. We promote social, environmental and economic development while increasing productivity to provide the world with sustainable, high-quality food.
