At SAAM we define sustainability as a social and environmental commitment to people and the planet.

We strive to meet present needs without compromising the capacity of future generations by integrating environmental, social and governance (ESG) variables into our operations and businesses.

As part of our CSR-based management, we are committed to implementing sustainability best practices and integrating the Global Compact principles and Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), into our corporate strategy.

Core Sustainability Areas

We are convinced that to be a successful, profitable company in the long run, we must make sustainability part of our DNA. To accomplish this we have defined five areas where we will leverage our actions and commitments.

These areas are aligned with our business strategy and set the course for efficient, responsible operations that strengthen the company’s long-term competitiveness and contribute to the Sustainable Development Goals.

Sustainability Committee

Its objective is to drive the transformation of the organization towards a sustainable global business model in all its business units. It is made up of SAAM’s corporate executives and meets twice a month. Its functions are:

  • Define the objectives of the Global Sustainability Plan
  • Make strategic decisions regarding the plan
  • Allocate resources
  • Provide executive sponsorship for program
  • Lead the organization’s transformation


SAAM identified the key factors for sustainability and, based on these, prepared a policy that lays the foundation for deciding and managing strategies and action plans for its operations and respective businesses. These factors were identified and prioritized by consulting with the company’s main internal and external stakeholders, which chose the most relevant topics for the business and the emerging issues for the logistics and port sectors.

Social Investment Guidelines

Our social investment strategy seeks to contribute to the specific needs of the communities in the countries where we are present, through projects that contribute to local development and allow us to bring the business of the company closer to its environment in a harmonious way.
