Today, within the PQE Group, the CSR Committee was born. A team of professionals whose task is to follow corporate social responsibility projects internationally. Safeguarding water and the marine environment and actions to eliminate gender diversity are the two objectives that PQE Group has set for 2022. Thus, the projects proposed by committee members need to be aligned with these themes. Each team member will be assigned a reference territory and responsible for finding associations to collaborate with to initiate CSR activities that will have to be approved by a Board established for this purpose.

Corporate social responsibility is increasingly crucial for companies. The numbers say it, not the words. Companies that prioritize purpose perform better than others. According to this report, 58% of organizations with a strong and clear sense of purpose experienced 10% or more growth during the last three years. And also, from the perspective of talent detainment, recent research reveals that nearly 70 % of employees say they wouldn’t work for a company without a strong purpose. PQE Group has always been committed to corporate social responsibility activities. But now, these activities are aligned to create an international strategy that can consistently help communities worldwide.

Here are some of the statements made by the members of the CSR-Committee team following their nomination:

Kimberly Alfonso – USA

CSR is the representation of what it means to give back in 2022: it is the perfect combination of business and meeting societal needs and it is an incredible way to keep team members engaged while making a difference.

Lizeth Zuleima Escorza Aguil – Mexico

I love being part of a company that not only cares about its employees, but also about others. Being part of the CSR Committee at PQE and creating a positive impact on society makes me feel proud of the place where I work, and even better, to do it together with people who seek the same goal: a better world.

Maria Jose Jaramillo – Europe

Being part of the CSR Committee is not only about participating in activities to give back and benefit the communities we serve, but it is also an opportunity to rethink long-standing challenges, reflect and connect with peers.

Nadia Procopio – Europe

I firmly believe that all of us are the mirror of the future. When we take both a decision and start with action, at that moment, we’re beginning a path that will take us somewhere. In my life since I was a teen, I’ve been actively collaborating with different Associations supporting the weakest. I remember my first shy steps and the others, one by one, which always became a significant result that made me stronger. Today, I’m so proud and happy to be a CSR Committee member, where I have the opportunity to walk with an ambitious team that will surely obtain success in Social Change and Environmental Sustainability too. So, let’s get the ball rolling…the first step toward Change has been taken!

Felipe Dal Belo – Brazil

CSR plays a great strategic and sensitive role for every company worldwide nowadays. And PQE Group is no different. Despite the committee, in representing the Brazilian subsidiary, we have already developed a lot of initiatives and concrete and substantial results projects that impact not only local society, environment, and economic aspects but also give impact and visibility to the worldwide business community. That’s why I’m so proud to work at PQE Group.
