Universidad del Valle de Mexico (UVM) will receive the badge of Socially Responsible Company (ESR) for the fourth consecutive year. This recognition proves that UVM is an institution that is committed to the welfare of its students, employees, suppliers, authorities and the general community. ESR is awarded by Cemefi, in collaboration with the Alliance for Responsibility in Mexico (AliaRSE) and Forum Empresa, to publically recognize those groups that make a voluntary commitment to being socially responsible.
The ESR is awarded based on a review of the actions taken by companies on ethics and corporate governance, quality of work life, community outreach, and environmental protection. "The Socially Responsible Company Badge, the most prestigious recognition in Mexico in terms of social responsibility, has been an opportunity to document, organize and unify policies and processes within UVM," said Dr. Bernardo Gonzalez- Arechiga, UVM’s Institutional Rector.
The Socially Responsible Distinction will be awarded this year to 786 companies that are actively and voluntarily dedicated to undertaking actions to improve the social, economic and environmental state of Mexico. Dr. Sandra Herrera Lopez, UVM’s Institutional Social Responsibility Director said, "this is an achievement of the whole UVM family, but especially our employees who strive daily to provide better service to Mexico through the education of future professionals committed to solving social problems."
