Garrigues Mexico receives the “Socially Responsible Company” distinction award for the third consecutive year
It is the third year running that the firm’s Mexico office has been recognized as a Socially Responsible Company (ESR® 2018), which is a distinction awarded in that country by the Centro Mexicano para la Filantropía (Cemefi) and Alianza por la Responsabilidad Social Empresarial (AliaRSE).
The ESR® Distinction is awarded following a diagnostic process based on indicators which are reviewed and validated annually by a committee of experts in different areas of CSR, supported by documentary evidence. The process differentiates between companies based on size and the stage of maturity reached, and there is external verification of the findings. According to the organization, the process “is an exercise in trust, honesty and transparency”. This is a highly prestigious award in the Mexican business world, which is given each year to a select group of companies in recognition of their efforts to “commit themselves voluntarily and publicly to the implementation of policies aimed at socially responsible management and continued improvement as part of their business culture and strategy”.
