Para estar a la altura de este compromiso, las empresas hablan ahora de Gestión Ambiental Responsable, en la que incluyen sus principios y valores corporativos al interior y exterior de sus organizaciones, contribuyendo de manera voluntaria al mejoramiento social, ambiental y económico, que implica ir más allá del cumplimiento normativo obligatorio y que contribuye a generar una posición competitiva en el mercado. Este nuevo reto en Gestión Ambiental exige contar con profesionales preparados para participar activamente en un nuevo campo de juego en el que la creatividad y la innovación tienen un papel importante para la toma de decisiones estratégicas.
