Madrid, June 23, 2009.- Abengoa was awarded the prize for Corporate Social Responsibility by the Dossier Empresarial financial journal in recognition of the company's commitment to its employees, in addition to the social, cultural and assistance efforts channeled through the Focus-Abengoa Foundation.

Furthermore, the judging panel of the Dossier Empresarial Awards, presided over by Guillermo Fernández Vara, president of the Regional Government of Extremadura, highlighted the strength of Abengoa's renewable energy-based business model, which the company has managed to develop while upholding its deep commitment to the communities in which it operates by carrying out assistance, educational, cultural, scientific and R&D&i projects.
