Sustainability Quality and Environment

Our Commitment

The commitment to sustainable development that Prado established is the result of the growing awareness of its stakeholders in this area. Your integrated management policy is the reflection of this commitment.

Prado has established over the years guidelines that govern the way we engage and interact in terms of environment, social, and governance (ESG).

In 2021, Prado took the next step toward formalizing the established principles, policies, and practices by adopting an environment, social, and governance (ESG) framework and creating a reporting mechanism in the form of our first Sustainability Report.
