As part of the relaunch of the Punto Verde (Green Point) awards, the Ministry of the Environment gave Corporación Quiport the Ecuadorian Environmental Award certifying the socio-environmental management model that Quiport implements at the airport, concerning its community work. The award was received by Francis Segovia, CFO of Quiport.
To grant this award, the Ministry of the Environment evaluated the environmental and social benefits that Quiport´s social responsibility program, Nuestra Huerta (Our Garden), has provided to the local community. It also evaluated the shared value of the program and Quiport´s sustainable development model.
The accolade accepted last night is the second to be received from the Ministry of the Environment. Last year it gave the Green Point award to the airport´s Rescue and Fire Fighting Service Building for its good environmental practices.
This award is a reflection of Quiport´s work to take care of and protect the environment and its role in stimulating community development.
