Social Responsibility

Caring enough is the commitment to ‘do things better’ – not just for the business but for the world at large. We undertake multiple initiatives to strengthen communities.

- Mrs. Sandra Shroff, Vice Chairman, UPL

To see a need and to take the initiative to answer it. To see an opportunity and to develop solutions. That's what we do.

Social Investment

We, at UCPL, Columbia, believe that by promoting the integral development of the communities neighbouring our plant in Barranquilla, we add more value to the business, making it increasingly competitive. Therefore, the scope of our social responsibility programs includes a continuous and two-way dialogue with neighbours, financial contribution to non-profit entities, the support for the development of emergency plans and the voluntary participation of employees.

Our active presence offers diverse benefits directed to children and their families, supports the local economy and sensitizes our employees to participate in the formation of human capital, with special emphasis on:

  • Education
  • Commitment to sustainability
  • Sharing our philosophy of prevention
  • Nutrition and integral development of children
  • Pedagogy and recreation to promote breastfeeding
  • Support for culture and sports
