We aim to use energy resources responsibly and to evolve to the use of cleaner and more efficient sources through:

A diversified portfolio of technology and energy sources that reduce our environmental footprint.

Strategies to reduce energy consumption in terms of production. We currently have goals and iniatives to reduce electric energy, gas and water consumption.

Emissions

We monitor our operations’ direct and indirect greenhouse gases emissions. As of 2012, Grupo Cuprum forms parts of the GEI Mexico Program which voluntarily evaluates records and reports its greenhouse gases.

We contribute to generate a positive social impact by acting responsibly where we operate and at the same time we encourage and seek the wellness and quality of life of our people.

Our people

Given our environment needs, we promote our workers and their families’ quality of life and as a result BIENESTAR X MI was born in 2016. This institutional program aims to provide information and promote practices that allow our workers to achieve an optimum state of physical, psychological and social well-being.  Through this initiative we contribute to our workers and their families’ wellness and we commit to our strategic objective to attract, develop and retain human resources to guarantee the businesses growth and continuity.  Bienestar X MI encompasses the following four branches of comprehensive development:
