Abengoa gets the DERES recognition of social responsibility for the third time

March 20, 2018

  • This year, DERES has recognized the work of Abengoa on "Quality of life and employment practices"

Abengoa has received the recognition of DERES, a non-profit business organization based in Uruguay that seeks to develop best practices in Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR). Specifically, Abengoa has been awarded for the work being done in the field of quality of life and employment practices, within the practice of "Insertion in the labor market of people with increased vulnerability".

This recognition showcases Abengoa policies directed to provide opportunities for employment to people with greater difficulty of access to the labor market and who seek a safe development and a better quality of life. Thanks to this project, which is carried out in partnership with various public and private bodies, Abengoa has achieved that 255 people have found a job from 2004 to 2017.

This is the third award that Abengoa has obtained from DERES. In 2011, the Company received a recognition in care and protection of the environment, for the elaboration and report of its greenhouse gas inventory; and in 2012, the quality of life and employment practices department deserved this prize for the gym in the headquarters.

Through this program, DERES seeks to motivate and encourage companies to communicate the practices of CSR carried out internally in their organization or externally, in the society at large, demonstrating a positive impact on its stakeholders and able to add value to the business at the same time.
