The continuous improvement of our environmental performance is an essential pillar in our business operations. We work on measuring, reporting and reducing our negative impact in the environment.
Managing our Environmental Impacts
Our Environmental Management System is aligned with national objectives of adaptation to climate change. Its purpose is the reduction and mitigation of GHG and to contribute to the sustainable development of the organization. This system is based on our Environmental Policy, signed by Banregio’s CEO .
We have implemented the process of measuring our Carbon Footprint every year since 2017. The results allow us to measure our impact and design new strategies against climate change .
In accordance with the Regulation of the General Law on Climate Change regarding the National Emissions Registry, the NMX-SAA-14064 standard and the GHG Protocol, an organizational approach was considered to establish the limits of the analysis and calculate the carbon footprint of scopes 1, 2 and 3 .

Connecting our community with nature
We promote the education of preservation and care of the environment among our employees and the community through: all year awareness campaigns, volunteering, training, and employee recognitions. Also, we created permanent awareness campaigns about climate change, recycling, and on how to have a more sustainable life.
Thinking of new measures to mitigate the effects of climate change, in 2019 we organized for the first time a reforestation volunteer program in partnership with Pronatura. We planted more than 900 stone pines in the company of more than 250 volunteers from Banregio.
Since then we adapted to the new reality through remote activities, such as online workshops and environmental volunteering from home, hand in hand with Construyendo una Sociedad Sostenible (SOSAC), with the intention that our employees continue implementing sustainable practices from home .

On our training plan for all employees we have a Sustainability course with the intention of presenting the initiatives and projects of the department and inviting employees to learn on issues related to our Social and Environmental Impacts so they can identified how they contribute to a sustainable business as well as how they can get involved and propose new projects.
We recognize those employees who stand out for their participation in environmental activities with the Environmental Wink.
