We support and are adhered to the Global Compact, the biggest global Corporate Sustainability initiative.
The Global Compact gives us the possibility to embrace universal principles and to partner with the United Nations on major development issues. In November 2012, Grupo Herdez signed its voluntary participation in this initiative.
The Corporate Social Responsibility award is granted annually by the Mexican Philanthropic Center (CEMEFI) and recognizes Companies that are committed with social responsibility management as part of their culture and strategy. Grupo Herdez has been a recipient of this award every year since 2008.
The Clean Industry certification is given by the Environmental Protection Agency (PROFEPA) and acknowledges companies that comply with the environmental legislation and have a commitment to improve their environmental performance. Currently, seven of our plants have received this certification.
The Sustainability Index of the Mexican Stock Exchange was created in order to monitor the Mexican market in environmental, social and corporate governance topics.
Grupo Herdez qualified for this Index in 2012 by incorporating international best practices in terms of social responsibility, environment and corporate governance.
