During the Sustainability Business Meeting, organized in Monterrey by the Global Compact Network in Mexico , the company ratified its determination to continue generating an environment of equal opportunities in its work centers, as well as to continue contributing to the mitigation of global warming through the reduction in the carbon footprint of its operations.

"We are committed to promoting the incorporation and development of the best talent, regardless of their age, gender, sexual orientation or any other condition inherent to the person," he added, before signing the commitment to the Principles of Female Empowerment.
