At MG Public Relations we value natural resources, the beauty of our beaches, the diversity of our flora and fauna. We believe that as responsible corporate citizens we must take a more active role in the preservation and care of our environment. In this sense, we have created the green practice called “Futuro Verde” (Green Future) with the commitment to promote both internally and externally sustainability and social responsibility initiatives that contribute to raising awareness about the care of our resources.
We assume the challenge of operating in a responsible and efficient manner, using the natural resources available to us, taking into account their preservation and the sustainability of the business.
We adopt tools and make our resources available to raise awareness and act in favor of our communities on issues related to the importance of the rational use of water, recycling, and preservation of resources, climate change, avoiding unnecessary waste. It is our way of actively participating by supporting initiatives that contribute to the cause, whether it is cleaning beaches, rivers, and seas, reforestation, preservation of endangered species, environmental education, among others.
In 2010 we became a collection center for recycled materials for Green Love, collecting paper and cardboard for members of the communities closest to our operations.
We see the United Nations Global Compact as a guide to orient our business vocation, which is why we have adhered to it and support it in our journey.
We value our reputation, image, and professional ethics as our main corporate assets. Transparency and integrity are the hallmarks of our way of doing business.
We strive to improve our performance on a daily basis, seeking alternatives that allow us to make a positive impact through our operations, with a view to being seen as leaders and role models in the strategic communications industry.
Under the commitment made in 2010, we have complied with the requirements established through the “Communications in Progress Reporting” (COP) during 2014, 2015, 2015, and 2018.
That is why we are committed to the Sustainable Development Goals, aligning our actions and efforts to the fulfillment of the objectives:
SDG5 – Ending all forms of discrimination against women and girls is not only a basic human right but also crucial for sustainable development.
SDG8 – Promote sustained, inclusive, and sustainable economic growth, full and productive employment, and decent work for all.
SDG13 – Take urgent action to combat climate change and its impacts (taking note of the agreements reached in the forum of the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change).
SDG17 – Strengthen the means of implementation through building local, regional and global partnerships for sustainable development.
Bullying (also known as harassment or bullying) is any form of psychological, verbal, or physical abuse that occurs between students repeatedly over a period of time. Statistically, the dominant type of violence is emotional and occurs mostly in the classroom and schoolyard. The protagonists of bullying cases are usually boys and girls in the process of entering adolescence (12-18 years old), with a slightly higher percentage of girls in the profile of victims.
On many occasions, bullying or mistreatment at school can turn into violence, since it is a kind of systematic torture in which the aggressor submerges the victim, often in complicity with others.
Due to the growth and negative effects caused by bullying and intimidation in Dominican schools and colleges, ACME – Acciona Contra el Maltrato Escolar, Dile no al Bullying (Say no to Bullying) was born.
It is a non-profit organization, which aims to raise awareness about the problem of school abuse in schools, educational centers, and society in general, as well as to educate about the consequences of it.
How was ACME born?
ACME was born out of experiences of bullying both on a personal and peer-level and the increase of bullying in schools nationally and internationally. It is an issue that has become very important in other countries, and the Dominican Republic is no stranger to this problem.
We are committed to working towards achieving gender equality and women’s empowerment and protecting our girls. Through SmartWE we designed a program that promotes women’s empowerment and equality through which we provide workshops that allow them to recognize their value and potential, especially those in vulnerable situations.
