ASECAM has awarded the company because of our actions committed to the environment and society. At Alianza Logistics we have been following a Corporate Social Responsibility strategy aligned with the Sustainable Development Goals for years. These goals are part of the 2030 Agenda approved by the United Nations. There are 17 goals established by the UN to alleviate global inequalities, among which we can find multi-sectoral actions to end poverty, protect the planet and improve the lives and prospects of people around the world.

In terms of environmental work, we can point to the creation of the Alianza Logistics forest, internal sustainability campaigns and measures, and our management of energy and resources. Thanks to these actions, the company has been awarded the Calculo y Reduzco seal by the National Carbon Footprint Register.
In terms of socially committed work, at Alianza Logistics we have created workshops in regions of Africa to encourage the economic independence of impoverished women. At the national level, the company has managed aid to non-profit organisations and institutions and solidarity actions with people with functional diversity and hospitalised children.
During the presentation of the Social Business Award, some of the representatives of Alianza Logistics came up to the stage. Among them: Alexis Dasca, Director of Business Development; Juan Miguel Dasca, CEO, and María González, Head of Management Systems.
