SUSTAINABILITY

Sustainability

In Santo Tomas Dasa we work hand in hand with collaborators and suppliers, especially with those from the Mexican countryside. We take care of the quality and safety of products, comply with our customer requirements, and support the community where we operate. Our plans and programs measure and reduce the use of water and energy to properly manage waste in order to incorporate innovation in company management.

Thanks to our sustainability model, since 2009 we have complied with the principles of the Global Compact, we have been recognized since 2010 with the ESR Distinctive and we participate in SEDEX and EcoVadis.
