Social Responsibility

Our plants operate in accordance with the most important Mexican and international standards in the industry.

We seek to promote the development of our employees and communities, and work in harmony with the environment.

We seek to create economic value, while at the same time promoting the growth and wellbeing of our associates and communities and operating in harmony with nature.

We know that our people are an invaluable asset and therefore offer the training they need to grow both professionally and personally. In 2012, we provided more than 100 thousand hours of training for our associates.

We are firmly committed to offering working conditions that guarantee health and safety. We operate with strict, safe working procedures and programs that reinforce a culture of safety.

During the year, almost 3,200 employees benefitted from our health and nutrition campaigns, which included influenza vaccination programs, informational sessions on how to prevent diabetes and obesity, and visual health support.

We also made an annual survey that covers safety and environmental issues, as well as the community’s perception of how we are doing in relation to topics such as environmental protection and risk management.

Every Alpek plant has programs to reduce the consumption of electricity and natural gas, monitor CO2 emissions, handle hazardous materials appropriately and recycle process water. As a result, all our production facilities operate in accordance with the most important Mexican and international standards for the industry.

  • ISO 9001
  • ISO 14001
