They are an important vehicle for delivering corporate results in the gender equality dimensions of the 2030 agenda and the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals.

    By joining the WEP community, the company expresses a goodwill commitment to the gender agenda at the highest levels of the company and works collaboratively in multi-stakeholder networks to foster business practices that promote equality and empowerment of women. These include equal pay for work of equal value, inclusive supply chain practices, fostering training and opportunities for women, and zero tolerance against sexual harassment in the workplace, among others.

    With this adhesion, PPC will be a key partner in generating efforts, alliances and, above all, in promoting equality and empowering women in order to generate structural changes in an integral way the organization.

    Equality and non-discrimination are fundamental human rights and gender equality is the essential basis for achieving more sustainable development and societies. Women represent the breadwinner of millions of families and communities, so empowering them carries the possibility of them reaching a greater degree of prosperity.

    PPC is fully committed to enhancing gender equality not only in its ports, but must also transcend our supply chain, stakeholders and the communities where we live and operate to bring about the changes the world needs today. These efforts should not only be applied in the workplace but also everywhere. We truly believe that the gender equality gap needs to be closed, simply because it’s the right thing to do for everyone and it’s the right thing to do for companies.
