To our stakeholders:
For the second consecutive year, we are very pleased to present the sustainability report of
the companies, Agrovision Peru and Arena Verde, and to present the first sustainability report of the newly incorporated, Agrovision Mexico, belonging to Agro Vision Corp. This report uses the Global Reporting Initiative (GRI) methodology.
This document sets out the goals and achievements realized from January 1 until December 31, 2021, with respect to our economic, social, environmental, and corporate governance performance. These goals reflect our foundational principle, “Transforming land, Transforming lives,” which is aligned with our management of the Company and our firm commitment to ten of the United Nations’ Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).
We began the year 2021 with a great corporate milestone: the operations of Agrovision Mexico began. Headquartered in the state of Jalisco, our 79 hectares of blueberries, raspberries, and blackberries generate employment for more than 240 people.
In Peru, with the companies, Agrovision Peru and Arena Verde, we grew our sales by 47%, breaking our 2020 annual growth rate of 50%. Additionally, we consolidated our strong competitive positioning in the export category, due to our vertical integration, advanced genetics, and our commitment to
more varied and quality-assured products.
Regarding environmental management, we are proud to have obtained the Alliance Water Stewardship (AWS) international certification for our companies, Agrovision Peru and Arena Verde, which exemplifies the high standards we have for the efficient management and protection of water
resources. This is particularly impactful in the Lambayeque region, where clean water
access is otherwise limited.
