Our commitment to community development
Our most important goal is to care for and protect our neighbors and nature, as only in this way will we achieve the success of our business. As we develop we want to leave a legacy of social progress in each place where our operations are welcome. Then we will be sure that our present-day decisions and actions will contribute to increasing well-being and making a fairer and more equal future for all.
Community Development is essential in our SPEED Integrated Value System to achieve business growth and sustainability in the long term. Securing a participatory social license with a differential approach that privileges the voice and decisions of our neighbors allows us to progress towards the objective of sustainable development.
We are a key player in territorial development and because our social commitment should contribute to the fight against social inequality and poverty, SPEED also reflects our commitment to the 2030 Agenda through which, in partnership with governments, civil society and communities, we work hard to give substance to the dream of a better planet for future generations.
