Our Initiatives to Preserve Biodiversity

Our Initiatives to Preserve Biodiversity

AgroAmerica is committed to helping maintain ecological balance and ensuring the necessary conditions for life to exist. We focus on producing food sustainably while contributing to the protection and preservation of biodiversity. In this article, we will highlight the actions we take to preserve biodiversity.

Solid Conservation Practices

Our contribution to biodiversity conservation is reflected in our regenerative agriculture practices, our sustainable landscapes and clear no-deforestation, no-extraction, no-peat and no-exploitation policies. We also actively work to restore any affected areas, which has a positive impact on local flora and fauna.

Ongoing Positive Actions

We face this challenge, hand in hand, with other organizations that are also concerned about maintaining ecological balance and preserving species of flora and fauna. We have built strategic alliances to promote specific conservation projects and work with partners to identify and implement concrete actions that protect biodiversity within our sphere of influence.

Rigorous Identification of Species

We have identified more than 50 species of flora and more than 70 species of fauna in our areas of operation, including some on the Threatened Species List, the IUCN Red List of Threatened Species, and the CITES International Trade List of Endangered Wild Fauna and Flora Species. The identification of these species is the basis for the design and implementation of specific actions to protect them.

Measurable Impact

We quantify every action we take to protect and preserve biodiversity. We have:

  • Preserved 70.62 hectares of forests and riparian zones in our operations.
  • Reforested extensive areas by planting more than 27,560 trees.

Our commitment is not limited to our operations. We form strategic partnerships to strengthen our efforts, lead a broader movement toward preserving biodiversity, and protect each species of flora and fauna found in our operating areas.

Code of Ethics of AgroAmérica: The Cornerstone of Our Organizational Culture

As AgroAmerica’s Legal Compliance Manager, I want to address the importance of Code of Ethics of AgroAmérica. This Code is the foundation on which our organizational culture is built rather than just a set of rules.

Our Core Values, Not Just Rules

Our Code of Ethics is more than a document mandating legal compliance. It is a set of principles that defines how we conduct ourselves in business and how we interact as members of AgroAmerica. It goes beyond legal compliance and demands honesty, integrity and transparency in our actions.

Transparency and Respect

Transparency is critical in the realm of legal compliance. We ensure that our operations are understandable and fair for our team members and those outside of our organization. What is more, respect for human dignity is an unwavering pillar of our organizational culture.

Positive Impact on Communities

Our commitment to the Code of Ethics aligns ethically and coherently with our sustainability strategy at every stage of our collection, production, and marketing processes.

How Does the Code of Ethics Function in Our Operations?

The Code serves as a mechanism for stakeholders to report violations or irregularities in our value chain processes. Concerns can be reported through the ethics line, where the responsible department will address any incident within one month of the date of the reported irregularity.

Our Commitment to Ethics

Everyone in the organization embraces the Code of Ethics as an active commitment. In my capacity as the Legal Compliance Manager, I urge everyone to view this Code as the framework that defines our business conduct. It serves as a constant reminder that at AgroAmerica, we act with integrity and responsibility and conduct our actions in a transparent and appropriate manner while continuously aiming for improvement.
