In celebration of Earth Day, Avocados From Mexico announced its recent commitment to the UN 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development. Within 13,000 signatory entities in more than 170 countries, the Association of Avocado Exporting Producers and Packers of Mexico (APEAM) is the first agricultural association in Mexico to join the United Nations Global Compact Mexican Network aligning its strategies and operations with the UN 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development.

This agenda is the largest voluntary corporate social responsibility initiative in the world in which companies agreed to commit to implementing internally the 10 Principles and 17 Sustainable Development Goals of the United Nations, and therefore, to respect human rights and labour standards, to preserve the environment and to act with transparency in their activities and operations.

“Our main objective is to generate an impact on the Sustainable Development Goal 15 “Life on Land”, as it is the one that has the highest impact on the avocado industry. This goal will directly contribute to the SDG 6 “Clean Water and Sanitation”, the SDG 8 “Decent Work and Economic Growth” and the SDG 12 “Responsible consumption and production” of the United Nations 2030 Agenda,” says Armando Lopez Orduña, managing director of APEAM.
