We became a B Corporation because we truly believe that all businesses can evolve their practices to be equitable and just towards society and the environment. Our certification as a B Corporation is important to us to demonstrate our commitment to sustainable value creation and shared prosperity and set an example for the companies that works with us. SVX Mexico is part of the B Corp Community as it seeks to generate systemic changes that tackle inequality and we are aware that this could be achieved through systems thinking, collaboration and multiple forms of capital: human capital, intellectual capital.

SVX México es parte de la comunidad de Empresas B porque creemos que todas las empresas pueden evolucionar sus prácticas para producir prosperidad compartida para la sociedad y el medio ambiente. La certificación como Empresa B es importante para nosotros para subrayar nuestro compromiso a la creación de valor sustentable, creación de prosperidad compartida y ser un ejemplo para nuestros clientes y aliados. Buscamos generar cambios sistémicos que reduzcan la desigualdad, y estamos conscientes que esto se logra a través de pensamiento sistémico, colaboración y múltiples formas de capital.
