Grupo Salinas Fosters Sustainable Development

Through its Sustainability Area, Grupo Salinas participated in the international Making Global Goals Local Business (MGGLB) Mexico meeting in Cancún, Quintana Roo, organized by the office of the UN Global Compact in our country.

This was the first time Mexico has been the venue for this important event, which brought together 19 countries (Argentina, Bangladesh, Bolivia, Brazil, Canada, Colombia, Costa Rica, Chile, Ecuador, El Salvador, Spain, the United States, France, Guatemala, Nicaragua, Paraguay, Peru, South Africa, and Thailand). Also present were more than 100 experts on issues such as technology, innovation, inclusion, and climate change. The meeting’s aim was to reinforce efforts by the public and private sectors and to foster development according to the 2030 agenda guidelines and the Sustainable Development Goals (SDG).

In his speech, César Cano, Grupo Salinas’ sustainability manager, pointed to the importance of collaboration among companies, utilizing their already existing infrastructure, and the use of institutions like the Global Compact to achieve alliances that can push forward sustainable development.

Grupo Salinas participates in the Global Compact’s Young SDG Innovators Programme, designed to accelerate entrepreneurial innovation in order to achieve the UN Sustainable Development Goals. The program activates future business leaders and challenges them to rethink traditional business models and open up new business opportunities.

Today, businesses have turned into real institutions and agents of social change; besides creating jobs and wealth, they are an important medium for transforming the communities where they operate. Because of the enormous influence they have in society, they must be recognized as fundamental actors for the creation of inclusive prosperity.
