VENTUS

VENTUS

 

SOCIAL COLLABORATION PROGRAM

Ventus comes from the Latin wind, an element that not only prevails over the sea but also moves over the land. Inspired by the power of the wind, at Cancun Sailing we have adopted this term as a driving force to act in favor of social causes.

Two of the main characteristics of Ventus is that it helps us define ourselves as a socially responsible and sustainable company.

 

SOCIAL RESPONSIBILITY

According to the ISO 26000:2010 standard of the International Organization for Standardization, Social Responsibility is defined as the responsibility of an organization for the impacts that its decisions and activities have on society and the environment, through ethical and transparent behavior that contributes to sustainable development, takes into consideration the expectations of stakeholders, complies with applicable legislation and is integrated throughout the organization, being carried out in all its relationships. 

 

SUSTAINABLE DEVELOPMENT

According to the definition of the United Nations (UN), Sustainable Development is a development model that meets the needs of the present without compromising the ability of future generations to meet their own needs, ensuring a balance between economic growth, environmental care, and social well-being.

 

Cancun Sailing's Ventus social program is responsible for reinforcing our commitment to civil society and we work every day to expand our range of activities, collaborations, badges, and badges that will put us on the map as a company focused not only on the care of the sea and the species that inhabit it but also in taking action to permanently improve our society.

 

OUR COMMITMENT

Today there are many social problems that transcend borders and it is everyone's responsibility to do our bit to prevent, reduce and even eliminate them. Although it sounds like a difficult task, it is not impossible to accomplish. 

"OUR COLLABORATION IS REFLECTED THROUGH ACTIVE PARTICIPATION WITH CIVIL ASSOCIATIONS AND INITIATIVES THAT GENERATE A POSITIVE IMPACT ON PEOPLE AND SOCIETY'S ACTIONS."

 

Environmental education plan
At Cancun Sailing we want to participate and leave our mark through sustainable strategies that help prevent and attack practices that negatively affect our society. Some of these strategies are:
  • Compliance with legal, social and internal company standards in the performance of daily operations.
  • Participation in activities and programs of social awareness and the elaboration of informative chronicles that invite the public to take action and be part of them.
  • Constant training for both employees and visitors to raise awareness and promote habits and actions in favor of society.
  • The generation of alliances with governmental institutions, civil society organizations, and other companies that agree with our sustainable development objectives.
It is important to mention that these actions represent a small part of what we all, as committed citizens, have to do. Adding efforts, even if they are small, is extremely important to generate large-scale changes.

At Cancun Sailing we are proud to add this proposal to our Corporate Social Responsibility scheme and to share our love for the sea and sailing with the visiting public and the community.

SOCIAL ADVERSITIES

There are many problems that afflict our society. Governments, the private sector, civil associations, and individuals, coordinate their efforts every day to ensure the sustainable development of our community, especially at the local level in the state of Quintana Roo. 

In Cancun Sailing we are proud to be a company committed to the development of society and to achieve this it is important to identify and define those issues that affect our society to generate awareness strategies to target groups.

Pobreza

Poverty

A person is in poverty when they have at least one social deprivation or do not have sufficient income to satisfy his/her needs. If a person has more than three deprivations and does not have sufficient income to purchase a basic food basket, he/she is considered to be in extreme poverty. According to CONEVAL (National Council for the Evaluation of Social Development Policy) statistics, as of 2018 in the state of Quintana Roo, 42% of the population is vulnerable due to social deprivation.

Food

The population in households with a moderate or severe degree of food insecurity is considered to be in a situation of food deprivation due to lack of access to food. In Mexico, there is a large amount of varied and nutritious food. However, the problem lies in the accessibility to these foods and in the quality of the diet of the population groups with fewer resources.

Derechos humanos

International Law and Justice

The UN promotes justice and international law in its three pillars of work: international peace and security, economic and social progress and development, and respect for human rights and fundamental freedoms. It is important to put an end to corruption, lack of information, and inequalities of power.

Problemas de salud

Health

Health is recognized by the World Health Organization (WHO) as a state of complete physical, mental and social well-being, and not only as of the absence of disease or illness. At the same time, it is a determining factor in a person's quality of life, since it conditions his or her educational and work performance, as well as the performance of daily activities. The CONEVAL identified that in Quintana Roo 18.5% of the population does not have access to health services.

Educación

Education

Educational backwardness is a condition presented by people who do not have basic education and do not attend a formal education center. In addition, due to the pandemic, many people living in poverty have seen their studies affected because they do not have the resources to continue with online classes.

Desempleo

Unemployment

Informal jobs, the gender wage gap, unfavorable working conditions, poorly (or not) paid work and few job opportunities for those just entering the labor market and people living in poverty are just some of the problems related to the social crisis of unemployment that is growing along with the world's population.
