Approach and Objectives

One of LUMIN's main objectives is to implement a Social Responsibility policy to develop and maintain appropriate levels of communication and participation with the environment in which we operate, sustainably, throughout the project lifecycle.

Approach and  Objectives

The company's approach is to actively participate in the community. The company does not seek to become a process leader, nor does it expect to have a leading role in initiatives that impact the communities. LUMIN seeks to provide support to the community, demonstrating good faith and without neglecting its core business. 

This reinforces our commitment to the use of renewable energy in line with our environmental sustainability policies.

Organization and decision-making procedures

We have established procedures, mechanisms and instruments to organize the area and make decisions. Support requests are submitted in writing specifying the details and characteristics of the request, as well as the applicant's information.

The request is analyzed by the CSR team and a response is communicated back to the customer in writing. The primary criteria that guide our analysis and decision-making are the following:

  • Impact of the action in the company's area of influence.
  • Number of actions previously supported in the same area.
  • The applicant has previously been supported by the company.
  • Impact on the LUMIN brand.
  • Cost – benefit analysis.
  • Availability of resources.

Lumin y los objetivos de desarrollo sostenible

LUMIN ha venido reportando sus actividades desde una mirada de triple impacto: económico, social y ambiental; mostrando a su vez el impacto que dichas acciones tiene en el cumplimiento de los Objetivos de Desarrollo Sostenible, que constituyen un llamamiento universal a la acción para poner fin a la pobreza, proteger el planeta y mejorar las vidas y las perspectivas de las personas en todo el mundo; dentro de la Agenda 2030 para el Desarrollo Sostenible promovida por Naciones Unidas.

Dentro de esta Agenda 2030, las empresas se constituyen como  agentes claves para el desarrollo de los países, los sectores y las personas, sin el cual los ODS no se alcanzarán. Es así que las empresas, como es el caso de LUMIN,  fomentan alianzas entre los sectores y contribuyen al cumplimiento de los ODS a través de diversas actividades como por ejemplo: medición del aumento en el nivel de ingreso local de las comunidades donde desarrolla sus actividades, horas de formación y capacitación invertidas en sus colaboradores, protocolos implementados en el lugar de trabajo en contra del acoso sexual y la violencia de género, inversión en energías renovables, desarrollo de inversiones e industrias locales, procedimientos para evaluar y controlar los riesgos medioambientales  y sociales, alianzas con otras partes interesadas para alcanzar los objetivos.

LUMIN refleja periódicamente su contribución a los ODS a través de las actividades apoyadas en el marco del Programa de Responsabilidad Social Empresarial y en su Memoria Anual, poniendo de manifiesto el modelo de empresa impulsada por LUMIN, que equilibre el propósito social y los beneficios económicos, utilizando la fuerza empresarial para generar un impacto positivo para sus empleados, la comunidad y el medioambiente.
