Five years ago, CIO. Compañía de las Islas Occidentales, began its commitment to integrate the corporate responsibility actions that it carries out, into its business strategy. Thus began a process of change that soon inspired all of us.
Today I am pleased to present the CIO Sustainability Report 2016, which shows the immeasurable participation of the teams of each of the companies that make up CIO. Their enthusiasm, determination, and effort are key to achieving our goals.
As this report reflects, we are continuing for another year, as a signatory of the UN Global Compact project, subscribing to its ten principles that encourage business sustainability in the areas of human rights, labour laws, the environment and the fight against corruption.
Three are the pillars that govern our sustainability actions: commitment towards our employees, respect of the environment and contribution towards society. To them, we have dedicated all our efforts in 2016, achieving most of the challenges set at the beginning of the year.
We continue to put our hearts and passion to collaborate in the construction of a better world.
Francisco Javier Zamorano
