WE WORK TOGETHER

Being sustainable

The energy we produce grows together with the community and remains sustainable over time. We are convinced that the right solutions are those that last. We work alongside our communities to develop the tools enabling us to satisfy the needs identified as priorities by its members.

As training and knowledge are our principal development drivers, we focus our best efforts on supporting technical education.

In education, health, art and culture, we implement projects designed with low-income rural and urban sectors as well as indigenous communities to help them grow and develop.

Our idea is to encourage and empower the members of these communities to identify their needs and propose projects to fulfill these. Tecpetrol offers communities and individuals the tools they need to achieve their objectives.

Knowledge underpins development

Education

  • Technical Gene

    We are driving the development of 4.0 Industry Skills in technical secondary schools, providing equipment, training and industrial practices.

    This is how we can contribute to strengthening technical education in secondary education, reducing the gap between industrial requirements and the level of technical knowledge acquired by students.

Developing culture in our communities

Art & Culture

  • Film festivals

    We encourage a greater appreciation of our communities’ culture, diversity and identity through Latin cinema, with the aim of sharing a fresh and youthful take on different themes.

    Photo library

    The history of our communities comes to life through photography exhibitions. The idea is to encourage people to revalue the local identity of their communities by collecting, digitizing and cataloguing the photographs making up their history and heritage.

    Fundación PROA

    Tecpetrol supports the Fundación PROA, taking its contemporary art and culture programs on tour to visit the communities neighboring the oil and gas fields where it operates.

COVID-19

Health

  • Together with the communities

    Right from the outset of the pandemic, we began work on a support scheme designed with the local health authorities, taking into account the full range of their health needs. We contributed our efforts to the common fight against the disease, to strengthen health systems and support medical personnel in their daily work. We provided biosafety kits and made ourselves available so that we could together be stronger to tackle the situation caused by COVID-19.

TEAMING UP

Volunteers in action

Our employees are regularly involved in volunteer activities, which is fundamental for forging long-term ties with the communities where we live and work. The initiatives we've carried out together with members from the community include projects such as improving infrastructure, revamping furnishings and upgrading paintwork at schools and other public spaces. We also support the Reading Marathon organized annually by the Fundación Leer.
