What is our intention?

AENOR is a professional services company that identifies and helps correct gaps in the competitiveness of the economic fabric of the societies we form a part of. The added value that AENOR contributes to filling these gaps is to generate trust between the economic agents of a society based on knowledge, values, and competitiveness. When the economic fabric reaches a sufficient critical mass in the incorporation of these values and knowledge, it acquires levels of efficiency that allow it to compete on equal terms with other international actors.

This means AENOR is a knowledge management company that acts in the area of competitiveness gaps; both across the entire economic fabric and in individual sectors. AENOR also works with companies and organisations to help them overcome their own specific competitiveness gaps.
