At the heart of what we do is the desire to improve the lives of our clients and the communities in which we live. For this reason, Allnorth Ingeniería sought to obtain the ESR 2023 Distinctive award offered by the Mexican Philanthropy Centrer (Cemefi), which supports our philosophy and helps us improve as a socially responsible company.
Allnorth Ingeniería is proud to announce that after going through an extensive process of gathering information and documents required by Cemefi, we’ve been awarded the ESR® Distinctive 2023. We are committed to continued work to achieve this goal yearly and improve as a socially responsible company.
Kudos to the Allnorth Ingeniería team for this achievement!
ESR® Distinctive Background
The Mexican Philanthropy Center (Cemefi) was established in 1988 as a privately-run, non-profit organization with the primary objective of fostering and activating citizen engagement to create social value that revolves around individuals.
Corporate social responsibility has evolved into a critical element of Mexican companies' business strategies, enhancing their competitive edge by integrating social responsibility management into their overall approach, thereby fostering sustainable development.
The ESR® Distinctive represents a methodology for evaluating the advancement of social responsibility within businesses.
In 2023, Cemefi adopted a new model for the ESR® Distinctive, guided by strategic pillars, which include:
Governance and Global Context
There are several competitive advantages of receiving the ESR® Distinctive, such as:
Reputation: The company's sustainability and competitiveness in the market heavily relies on its public image and how it is perceived by various stakeholders, including its environment, shareholders, suppliers, citizens, competitors, and others.
Responsible Consumption Growth: Over recent years, there has been an increase in the consumption of products associated with addressing social and environmental needs.
Regulatory Changes: New laws have emerged concerning the use of packaging and labeling materials containing harmful substances in various everyday consumer products. Additionally, international regulations like the Green Agreement and the United Nations' Sustainable Development Goals have come into play.
Human Capital: There's a shift in the composition of the workforce, with individuals now seeking out companies that provide them with a sense of purpose and address social issues such as labour inclusion and gender equality. This shift has been further accelerated by the changes triggered by the Covid-19 pandemic.
Investment: Sustainable and innovative companies are gaining the trust of investment groups, fostering reliability and confidence among them.
