Approved by Board Resolution 200/16.
This year, we have decided to renew our commitment to society and the environment through the creation of the third edition of the Socio-Environmental Balance, in order to continue the work that the Teleférico Salta S.E. Complex has been undertaking.
What aspects were taken into account for the development of this publication?
Transparency in management towards workers, society, and internal service consumers; safety as an undeniable value for users; and finally, economic and labor aspects. Producing a socio-environmental balance complements and strengthens the annual economic balance conducted by the complex. It allows the integration of environmental and social aspects into the economic facet.

Mindful of its responsibility towards society and the environment, Teleférico San Bernardo has produced the second edition of the Socio-Environmental Balance.
To achieve this, an interdisciplinary team worked on the following guidelines: the strategy - based on the commitment to carry out our activities adhering to quality standards; the vision and respect for values that society has embraced as its own: kindness, commitment, transparency, solidarity, and teamwork.
This constitutes an unavoidable obligation to continue being accountable for the management being carried out, convinced that it is necessary to reconcile economic, environmental, and social balance.

The Professional Council of Economic Sciences of Salta and the Observatorio de Responsabilidad Social Foundation provided technical and professional support for the implementation of the project.
