- The biotech company continues to develop its CSR program based on the UN SDGs, by taking action on four main axes that are part of its DNA: the planet, people, conscience and social commitment.
The Vytrus CSR project, which began with its foundation 12 years ago, goes beyond any current trend and is explained by the awareness of its founders and by the company's own activity. Its raw material, plants, and its technology, biotechnology, gives a focus on respect for nature and the environment, promoting values such as sustainability, social awareness, transparency and honesty, which form its culture and the distinguishing features of its spirit and character, the DNA.
The Vytrus project is developed through 4 central axes: people, planet, company and social commitment.
1. People are the soul of Vytrus
People are a priority and one of the main assets in the company's value chain. The company's values are aligned with its human team, which proposes them, thus sharing and participating in the CSR commitment.
2. The planet, a commitment to socially sustainable investment
Vytrus ensures that its actions are sustainable throughout its environment, enhancing the benefits provided by biotechnology. Seeking positive impacts, such as the genetic reservoir, the possibility of working with exotic plants, endangered and endemic species, which allows for recovery, replanting and repopulation.
"Returning to nature what nature has given us" is Vytrus' commitment to the planet and nature. A project in which its ingredients allocate a percentage of their turnover to sponsoring social, scientific or research projects, preservation of nature and plants, the environment and/or climate change, among others. In this way, it formalizes close alliances with entities and projects with these synergies.
3. Conscious company
