We act today

To create positive impact in partnership with our suppliers

As a team, we have accomplished our goal alongside more than 2,000 companies that make up our supply and service chain*. Thanks to the work of strategic partners in logistics, shipping, infrastructure, and consulting, we have successfully overcome geographical, cultural, and financial barriers to quickly and safely reach those who choose us.

We have created a virtuous cycle within the value chain: as these companies help us implement our ecosystem of solutions in the region, growth and development opportunities multiply for those who are part of it. As a result, we can identify at least 17 economic activities that indirectly benefit from the growth of our ecosystem*.

We are mindful of the social and environmental impact of our value chain. Therefore, we have developed a Sustainable Procurement Policy that encourages the hiring of suppliers committed to making a positive impact. Additionally, we provide support for suppliers who want to advance their socio-environmental agenda through training and support for B certification.

“To us, 'Mide lo que importa' was a fantastic ‘alarm clock’ that gave us the opportunity to ask ourselves how we did what we were doing. At that time, we started our journey to improve our enterprise, measuring our impact and becoming a certified B Corp in 2021.”

"Ever since I became a partner at Trasix, getting BCorp Certification has been a goal. Along with the obvious positive impacts on the environment and society of our work, we also wanted to show our firm commitment to Corporate Compliance and Governance. Trasix's participation in the Measuring What Matters program gave us the necessary push to formalize the entire process and get our BCorp certification."
