Camposol has announced the completion of a pilot programme to improve sustainability within the agri-export sector.
Developed by the International Labour Organisation (ILO), the SCORE (Sustaining Competitive and Responsible Enterprises) programme supports small and medium enterprises (SMEs) in becoming more sustainable through being cleaner, more productive, and competitive, and by providing more sustainable and decent employment.
Camposol submitted results on the Pilot SCORE application to the agro-exporting sector from the regions of Ica, La Libertad and Piura at an event held at ILO’s headquarters in Peru, where company representatives had the chance to share their experiences and testimonies about the programme.
Camposol’s ethical and sustainability systems superintendent, Karen Ortega Ampudia, said the implementation of the system, which seeks to improve productive processes, reduce accident rates, produce a better working environment and increase the organisational productivity, was very important to the company.
Omar Moreno Tume, blueberry production superintendent, and Delmer Flores Laguna, head of frozen production, were responsible for the report of results carried out by Camposol. Both of them led the teams that were trained by ILO specialists in order to efficiently implement this methodology.
The SCORE programme is funded by the Swiss State Secretariat for Economic Affairs (SECO) and the Norwegian Agency for Development Cooperation (NORAD).
