We are excited that the location of these corporate offices allows us to generate new partnerships to help the Ensenada community and the environment,” said Tania Ortiz Mena, president of Sempra Infrastructure for Mexico.

In the past ten years, Sempra Infrastructure has provided funds in support of environmental education programs and workshops, including a Nature Photography Forum in 2022 and the production of environmental documentaries, among other activities. Sharing the same location will further facilitate the implementation of new programs and initiatives that promote environmental education and protection of the State.
