Global Power Generation fosters a permanent relationship of collaboration with local society in the areas where it operates through its social action strategy.
In this line of commitment, GPG is developing an ambitious support plan to contribute towards the fight against COVID-19 by supplying medical supplies and food items in the towns of Tuxpan, Hermosillo, Durango, Agua Prieta and Juchitán de Zaragoza. This plan has been made a reality through 10 collaboration agreements with a variety of local institutions (including hospitals, nursing homes, town halls and the Red Cross).
To date, medical materials approved by the Mexican Institute of Social Security have already started to be distributed to a total of 14 hospitals, shelters and nursing homes, and food items have been given to some 6,000 vulnerable families.
Thanks to our awareness of the social environment (resulting from the trusting relationship between our colleagues in Mexico and the communities, previously established in the development of each facility’s social action strategy), we have been able to detect needs and sign collaboration agreements at an early stage. Moreover, the supplies were purchased and distributed in record time given the currently complicated market and logistical conditions, thanks to the coordination and teamwork of all Naturgy units involved.
In addition to this initiative, GPG is also carrying out a variety of social development projects as part of each facility’s annual social action strategy in order to promote equal opportunities and boost socio-economic development. This activity is in line with its corporate responsibility policy, which promotes the creation of shared wealth with a positive social impact in the regions where it conducts its activities.
In Mexico, GPG has four combined cycle power plants (2,210 MW) located in the states of Durango, Sonora and Veracruz, in addition to a wind farm (234 MW) in the state of Oaxaca.
