We generate renewable energy, mainly hydroelectricity, through small-scale plants. Additionally, the protection and management of our watersheds has resulted in the development of agroforestry projects that protect the soil and rivers while providing local families with job opportunities.
We are committed to the environmental conservation, holistic development in general, and the responsible and sustainable use of our natural resources.
The Secacao, Candelaria, and Choloma power stations are located in the municipality of Senahú, in the Guatemalan department of Alta Verapaz, while the Guayacán distributed generation station is located in the municipality of Taxisco, in the department of Santa Rosa.

Code of Ethics and Professional Conduct
GRUPO SECACAO is committed to carrying out its activities correctly and according to the highest legal and ethical standards. Who we are isn’t defined by what we do or by our name; it’s defined by the way we act, the values we represent, and the way in which we relate to our interested parties, society, and the environment in which we live.
Our operations are located mainly in rural areas, within a markedly underdeveloped context characterized by strong poverty indexes that reflect inadequate levels of human development and great deficits in education, health, and infrastructure. The current state of our nation and its rural areas also reflects a high degree of environmental degradation in general, including serious problems related to deforestation, river pollution, and erosion.
Furthermore, we participate in an industry that is globally complex and competitive, one that requires us to apply the best and most advanced engineering and management techniques to not only survive but also stand out in a sector that is increasingly complex.
Our main challenge is to define a management model that allows us to develop our activities as good citizens within our society and environment, under high levels of excellence. With this in mind, we have managed to become a leader and reference point in the national electric power industry, a position we wish to keep and strengthen.
GRUPO SECACAO has developed a strategic management plan, the Strategy for Sustainability and Corporate Social Responsibility, with the goal of developing principles, criteria, and policies that guarantee that our business model, as well as our social and environmental impact, is sustainable and that any negative impacts are minimized and eventually lead to positive effects.
At the heart of this strategy is our Code of Ethics, through which we concretely express our values and principles and establish our methods and obligations.
Thanks to the orientation provided to us by this Code, along with common sense, encouragement, effort, and enthusiasm, we trust that GRUPO SECACAO and every member of our great team will continue to contribute to our successful career while promoting and enjoying a great reputation.
Grupo Secacao is based on the following thirteen policies, which determine and guide our line of work and our social efforts for the benefit of our environment, neighbors, and collaborators.
