ENVIRONMENTAL PROTECTION

Aware of the environmental impact, in URREA we have made investments in facilities and programs for the use and utilization of the resources of the environment in a responsible way. This has led us to be recognized with important Incentives and Certifications.

Over the years, URREA has participated and collaborated in different events promoting and generating awareness of the care of the vital liquid, water; in addition it improved its facilities to generate a greater use, we collaborate with the State Water Commission of Jalisco (CEA, Comisión Estatal del Agua), in environmental projects and promoting the "Culture of Water". These efforts have managed to position the organization as one of the companies responsible for environmental actions.

Some of the actions that have been carried out in Urrea focused on environmental care are:

  • Eco-efficiency
  • Environmental education
  • Reforestation
  • Water Treatment Plant
  • Recycling

CEA
JALISCO

During 2010 there was an approach with representatives of the State Water Commission (CEA) Jalisco, who attended the facilities of URREA Dando Vida al Agua to evaluate the practices that carried out in the responsible care of this vital liquid, In order to integrate it into its population awareness programs on responsible water care and use. Since then, URREA participates with the Commission in the promotion of water care.

REFORESTATION

As part of Urrea's Social Responsibility strategy in the Environmental pillar, since 2012, a reforestation is carried out annually in one of the forests located in the metropolitan area of Guadalajara. For this, it has a synergy with Extra A. C, an association responsible for managing the logistics of reforestation and donating the specimens that will be planted. Urrea, on the other hand, invites all its collaborators and families to join this action in order to strengthen their environmental education and reduce air pollution in the city.

WATER TREATMENT PLANT

URREA takes care of the environment through its practices. Our new water treatment plant allows us to eliminate discharges into the drainage network. Treated water is in equal or better conditions than it was taken from nature, and it is used to water gardens at our facilities.

SPONSORSHIP OF THE NATIONAL WATER YOUTH PRIZE

Urrea, along with the Swedish Embassy in Mexico, participates as a sponsor of the Water Youth Prize, in which students from public and private Universities in our country present innovative projects related to the care and good management of this vital liquid. Our company provides monetary support to the winning team to go to Sweden representing Mexico and present their Project before the contest to the Swedish Government

WIND ENERGY

Currently, 90% of the electric energy used by URREA comes from wind farms free from contaminating gases, that is to say sustainable clean energy, thus maximizing the profitability of the company and minimizing the environmental impact, as well as reduce up to 681 tons of CO2 per month.

GEI

GEI Mexico is a voluntary nationwide program for calculation and report of greenhouse gases and promotion of projects to reduce greenhouse gas emissions.

BUSINESS ETHICS

In URREA we live the business ethic as a daily practice of the company; its greatest expression and pillars are in the Code of Ethics that we constantly update and promote with our collaborators and suppliers.

Similarly, we implement our Code of Conduct to guide each one of our collaborators towards best practices. In addition, we have policies that complement and strengthen ethics as a constant in daily coexistence within the organization.


Additionally, we know the importance of the relationships with chambers for continuous improvement and proactive action of our value chain. It is thus that URREA is currently partner of COPARMEX, COMCE de Occidente and the Chamber of the Metal Industry of Guadalajara, to keep working closely and to promote improvements in the industry.

Communication is an important pillar in ethics. Transparency and participation create a more harmonious working environment. Thus, year after year the annual convention is held, where the efforts and achievements of the collaborators are rewarded and the results obtained in the previous year and the objectives of the year, as well as the developments and plans of the company are announced, motivating the whole working group to grow and support the success in the expectations of this great organization.

Finally, and in an integral way with our business ethics, we complement our ethical actions fulfilling the obligations and commitments with third parties, we invest in external audit for a professionalized growth, we have the Clean industry certification, we participated in the training before the Secretariat of Labor and Social Welfare (STPS, Secretaría del Trabajo y Previsión Social) and express the importance of our organization accepting and disseminating the SRC Decalogue. These efforts place URREA with its collaborators, stakeholders and shareholders as a solid company committed to Corporate Social Responsibility.

For Urrea, "Tecnología para vivir el agua", the voice of our human factor is very important, that is why “Urrea te escucha” was created, support tool to make reports related to inappropriate behaviors by any collaborator, who put both human and material values of the organization at risk.

This program is managed by the firm Deloitte, which receives all the allegations anonymously and channels them to the URREA’s Ethics and Culture Committee, formed mainly by the General Coordination.

Its objective is to monitor and procure ethical conduct within the organization. Similarly, it seeks to improve the working environment and generate confidence among the collaborators that integrate the organization.
