Our commitment in this sixth Sustainability Report is to inform clearly and transparently the achievements, impacts and main challenges of Genomma Lab Internacional in economic, environmental and social matters. The content of this report is based on the principles of materiality, completeness and participation with stakeholders, to ensure the transparency of our information.
We reveal through the three principles of materiality, aspects that reflect the economic, environmental and social effects of the Company. We also share information on issues that impact our stakeholders’ decisions and assessments and on our practice to their expectations and interests.
