Components of the Environmental Management System

At Grupo Bancolombia, we have a system aligned with ISO 14001. This includes our Environmental Management Policy,, which establishes the framework, structures, principles, and guidelines for planning, organizing, executing, monitoring, controlling, and improving the system. In this way, we promote the achievement of sustainable development objectives thanks to strategic planning that we carry out annually with the participation of the areas that are part of the system, and we also have: 

  • Legal-environmental matrix: It complies with national government requirements, the Ministry of Environment and Sustainable Development, regional environmental authorities, and customer and supplier commitments.

  • Environmental impact matrix: It identifies our environmental aspects and impacts and allows us to prioritize our action plans.
