Mahavir Kmina received theBusiness Recognition in Sustainability of the Metropolitan Area of the Aburra Valley by complying with all the requirements related to good practices in social and environmental management, also taking into account their economic and competitive aspects.

The entity won the award in the categoryActive, thanks to the implementation of the water recirculation system in the Corporation's Production Area, to later make the sludge available to an outsourced company.

According toMaria del Pilar Restrepo Mesa, environmental deputy director of the Metropolitan Area, what was sought through the three established categories (Active, Advanced and Leader), was to "review and look at which companies had been greatly improving their environmental performance and those are the ones that entered an active category, which were already in a level that they still had to improve processes, but that they were already making a very significant effort”.

"Mahavir Kmina is increasingly committed to the sustainability and quality of the territory's environment."



The recirculation system was implemented through the ProSUR Business Corporation, which supports Mahavir Kmina in its environmental commitment, and was donated by WATA Compañías de Aguas SAS, an organization specialized in this type of machinery.Laura Zapata Restrepo, project manager of ProSUR, says that "through the Sustainable Productivity Table to which several ProSUR organizations belong, Mahavir Kmina is increasingly committed to the sustainability and quality of the territory's environment."

This process, beyond complying with the established regulations, avoiding environmental contamination, brings advantages for the Corporation, since in addition to reducing water costs, it also reduces the costs of public services._cc781905-5cde-3194-bb3b -136bad5cf58d_ 

The entity intends to continue contributing, positively, to caring for the environment and to continue participating in future calls made by the Metropolitan Area to renew its recognition. "We want to be a Corporation that is increasingly responsible for the environment and innovative, improving our practices, thinking beyond legal compliance," he says.Yeni Meneses, Mahavir Kmina Management Systems Coordinator.
