BMI In order to continue generating actions to reduce the deterioration of the environment and contribute to social well-being, we decided to generate a positive impact by starting a transformation process that began in 2021. We created various digital initiatives to significantly reduce the amount of resources we consumed. as a company and, thus, we have been able to decongest some points of our value chain that have led us to self-management processes, including the control and reduction of energy consumption, the use of materials such as paper printing and the development of self-management channels using platforms such as Salesforce.
It was also created BMI Suite which is an exclusive self-management portal for policyholders and soon, the exclusive Community Cloud portal for agents will be launched where claims requests, new business and inquiries can be made through access to the web application.
These actions have allowed us control the use of materials, but, above all, focus on sustainability.
We decided to move in this direction because we are sure that our company could not continue if we did not join forces to protect our planet and the health of our policyholders. The challenge is great, but we assume it with confidence because we will generate a positive and lasting impact.

Individual actions and good practices to improve our ecosystem will generate big changes and create links with future generations.
