TEGUCIGALPA, Honduras - January 10, 2019 - (Newswire.com)
At Grupo Terra, the company lived a year full of challenges and achievements, always proposing to do better things in every place that we have a presence and it is through a business vision and the effort of our team, that we can successfully conclude 2018.
The dedication of a talented team allowed us to celebrate our 40th anniversary as a corporation this year, reflecting on all the goals that we set and businesses undertaken, with the main objective of contributing in the development of our communities and families.
Within the scope of our business units, in Terra Energy, we have the honorable mention by “Mexican Center for Philanthropy” (CEMEFI) to our Archaeological Park of Hidro Xacbal to protect the cultural heritage.
In Terra Petroleum, we focus to benefit more users and consumers with our excellent products. The creation of new service stations in the oil network allows us to have more than 1,500 stations in Central America and Colombia.
Through Terra Infrastructure and our effort and dedication in customer service, we helped the Ramón Villeda Morales International Airport maintain its ranking among the five best airports in the Latin American and Caribbean region, moving two million passengers per year.
In Terra Real Estate, we expanded our investments in Central America, with the acquisition of 3,908 m2 of office space, equivalent to 50 percent of a tower under construction of the new AVIA Complex located in zona 10 in Guatemala City, and closed the year with a presence in three countries of Central America.
For the tenth consecutive year, we were honored with the Social Responsible Company Seal by FUNDAHRSE, thanks to the commitment to sustainability, economic growth, social development and the environment.
Also, the constant growth and the generation of business opportunities in a responsible way, allowed us to be featured in Forbes Central America magazine among the 20 competitive companies in Latin America.
Each member of our Terra family knows the importance of the commitment we have to the environment, which is reflected in the voluntary participation in "A Day For," where we managed to plant 5,225 trees in Honduras, Guatemala, Nicaragua, El Salvador and Costa Rica. This is an effort with our employees carried out annually with the aim of contributing our grain of sand with environmental conservation.
Commitment to education
In addition to celebrating 40 years as a corporation, our social arm Terra Foundation has two decades since its creation.
In the framework of its anniversary, the third edition of Magisterial Conferences was held at a regional level, with participation from the renowned international writer Elsa Punset, with the aim of providing more than 900 teachers and authorities the opportunity to participate in the educational programs, experiences and practices that contribute to their professional life as well as that of their students.
The strategic alliances were a key element this year to complete great achievements in education.
Terra Foundation, in conjunction with “Teach a Man to Fish,” executed the program of “entrepreneurial schools,” creating 46 school microenterprises with the participation of 1,300 students participating in “Tutoring Scholarships.”
We ended the year grateful to each collaborator who made it possible to reach these achievements and we are proud to have a valuable team that every month showed passion and interest in all their work.
We are motivated to start a new year. We have the goal to continue innovating and, above all, contributing to the development of the region.
We will continue creating better opportunities for our people through new business ideas, training to grow small and medium enterprises, and we will strive to add more volunteer hours doing activities that impact the environment positively.
We know that with effort and excellence, we will achieve new goals in 2019 while always seeking the welfare of our countries.
