“Every day it is more important in international markets that exporting companies comply with standards associated with sustainability and that it is present throughout the chain. In developed countries such as Europe and the United States, this is very important, as consumers look for products that are sustainable. This is an increasingly relevant factor for international trade, “said ProChile CEO Jorge O’Ryan.
For his part, the head of the ProCasis Sustainability Subdepartment, Catalina Cuevas, explained that “this new tool is very valuable, since it generates a double result. On the one hand, it provides concrete recommendations to companies to advance their sustainable management and, on the other, it allows us to guide future actions to support their promotion and development, in a more demanding and challenging context. ”
To enter the test, companies must answer the email sent to them from ProChile or enter the website www.prochile.gob.cl/sostenibilidad. The deadline to do so is August 31. Those who participate will be able to assess their degree of progress in the matter and, in addition, they will have practical guidance to improve their sustainability management.
