Quiénes somos

We are a company that generates and markets energy, envisaged as a group of people that seeks to satisfy the needs of other groups of people, and we work together with them to bring about wellbeing and development for the country.

Our management efforts are aligned with the highest ethical standards, integrating social and environmental responsibility, and reflecting sound economic sense and a customer focus.

LWe bet on sustainability in order to create value for the business and to contribute to building trust-based relationships with our stakeholders, making real contributions to protecting the environment, economic growth and social development.

We joined the Global Agenda for Sustainable Development through sustainability initiatives:

  • Sustainable Development Goals 

    In 2015 we committed to these 2030 global goals, which were agreed on by 193 counties and are the new challenge for the international community to fulfill actions pending from the previous Millennium Development Objectives (MDO). These are aimed at structural, comprehensive and balanced changes, based on universality, equity, commitment and sustainability principles.

    Opposed to MDOs, SDGs include new challenges such as economic inequality, climate change, peace, justice and sustainable consumption.

    At ISAGEN we prioritize six of them, which are related to our business and philosophy, and strive for achieving them within our Company's core activities.

  • Global Compact 

    This United Nations approach recognizes that the development of humanity depends largely on achieving sustainable global dynamics based on universal principles that contribute to build a more prosperous society.

    We adhered in 2005 and implemented in our management the ten principles of this initiative in areas such as human rights, labor standards, environment and anti-corruption. Since then, we have participated actively in actions of the Global Compact local network, and have promoted these principles among our stakeholders.

    Human Rights

    We are committed to the respect and promotion of human rights, addressing the following principles of the global initiative:

    • Principle 1: Businesses should support and respect the protection of internationally proclaimed human rights.
    • Principle 2: Businesses must make sure that they are not complicit in human rights abuses.

    Labor practices

    Our commitment with good labor practices extends to the value chain. We have implemented the Human Management Integral Model to promote building employees' competences as well as the Policy on engagement with suppliers to promote ethical and collaborative relationships. We thus embrace four Global Compact principles related to labor standards:

    • Principle 3: Businesses should uphold the freedom of association and the effective recognition of the right to collective bargaining.
    • Principle 4: Business should eliminate all forms of forced and compulsory labor.
    • Principle 5: Business must effectively abolish child labor.
    • Principle 6: Businesses must eliminate discrimination in respect of employment and occupation.

    Environment

    We promote good environmental practices among stakeholders, for example through the Environmental Management Plans developed with the communities in the areas of influence. Furthermore, our projects are aimed at the generation of renewable energy, clean development mechanisms and energy efficiency, thus abiding by the three principles of this initiative:

    • Principle 7: Businesses should support a precautionary approach to environmental challenges.
    • Principle 8: Businesses should undertake initiatives to promote greater environmental responsibility.
    • Principle 9: Businesses must encourage the development and diffusion of environmentally friendly technologies.

    Anti-Corruption

    We join this initiative through instruments to promote, assess and secure compliance with ethics as a core value and with corporate governance practices. We evidence our support to the last principle of Global Compact:

    • Principle 10: Businesses should work against corruption in all its forms, including extortion and bribery.
  • Agreement for Sustainability 

    We subscribed to this Agreement in 2014, recognizing that public utility and communication companies influence the construction of ethical, innovative and responsible businesses that drive progress in Colombia, and are also committed to implementing good practices for its achievement.

    Learn how we have contributed to the compliance with this Agreement.
