Agroganadero Ltda. - Colombia

"We are always motivated to find environmental programs to apply in our business and region," says German Escudero, crop engineer for Agroganadero Ltda. "Respect for the environment is the key to life."

The company demonstrates this through meetings with clients in which they highlight the importance of environmental conservation and assistence in helping its customers maintain product application records. It is in constant communication with clients about illegal and low quality chemicals, and consults with the National Industrial Association (ANDI) about controlling such products.

Employee safety is also a top priority for this Ipiales-based company, which provides emergency equipment and training on safe handling procedures.
