Self-observation of corporate sustainability

 


Written by Diana Nicol Garzón , Project Management Coordinator Colombia.


We could start by asking ourselves why companies, social constructs with economic and value-added interests, are called upon to integrate into their philosophies concepts related to sustainability, sustainable and human development among other areas until now more related to the public sector and the third sector (non-governmental organizations)?

To address this question, it is enough to understand that companies base their essence on people, from any logic as a group of interest. With this understanding, from ALLCOT we recognize that as agents of change we deserve our stakeholders (customers, employees, collaborators, partners, suppliers, shareholders, among others) to continually rethink our practices with a comprehensive approach and continuous improvement, as well as making
sustainability a pillar of our organizational strategy.

As a result of the above, within our good practices we can observe: the calculation and compensation of our carbon footprint, the broad portfolio of strengthening our corporate social fabric that promotes a good work climate, good labor practices beyond those established by law, among other activities in each of the areas of sustainability as a broad concept.

During our decade of existence in the market and the continuous relationship of ALLCOT with other market players, we have had the chance to identify opportunities and challenges of corporate social responsibility and sustainability itself, which have allowed us to rethink for our clients, services more in line from the perspective of process improvement and corporate environmental strategy, offering specialized services of high added value such as mapping and quantification of the Sustainable Development Goals (SDG), SDG label, Life Cycle Analysis, among others.
