INTERAMERICAN and Sustainability / CSR
Interamerican in 2006 has considerably strengthened its environmental / sustainability pillar though a number of initiatives, both internal and external.

At the same time it has developed the necessary structures for the implementation of its renewed participatory environmental policy.
