Bearing the foregoing in mind, UPRA formulates its environmental policy and its objectives.

In this sense, as one of the guiding principles of management, actions take into account different environmental aspects that could have negative or positive impacts or incidents against environmental protection, minimizing and mitigating negative impacts through plans, institutional actions and continuous improvement. Likewise, it promotes good practices for the conservation of natural resources, for the rational use of water and energy and for a comprehensive management of waste, following legal provisions on the matter.
