The LAQI is a private non-profit organization located in Panama City. With more than 2,900 members from 19 Latin-American countries, the LAQI is the booster of Quality Management and Sustainable Development in South and Central America. In 2014 the LAQI provided training to no less than 550 companies. The knowledge gained is shared in the magazine, Quality Management, which has a worldwide circulation of 150,000 copies. In brief: the LAQI plays a key role in the development of sustainable business in Latin America.
Under the header ‘40 + 10 acciones’ the LAQI published a Charter with a new standard for Total Responsibility. In this, five ambitions come together:
Improve4all and LAQI together, will put their backs into promoting Quality Management and Sustainable Development. The two go hand in hand: Sustainable Development is essential for Total Quality and vice versa. The challenge is to make businesses aware of the power of cross-breeding. In addition, Improve4all and LAQI will exchange extensive knowledge and tools with each other, and with interested companies.
Improve4all wants to introduce Latin America to, among other things:
Improve4all believes in the power of collaboration. We are all stakeholders of our planet and that brings responsibility with it. But sharing knowledge and expertise, Improve4all supports businesses towards future proof enterprise. Excellent entrepreneurship based on sustainable principles, because that is good for the business and the planet. Sustainability is not an obligation, sustainability is a chance.
‘Through the agreement LAQI-Improve4all, we want to address in the responsible development of companies both America and Europe. This partnership represents our commitment to further enrich business decisions under a sustainable approach to achieve higher levels of productivity and effectiveness.’ − Dr. Daniel Maximilian Da Costa, CEO and Founder of LAQI
