Santiago de Compostela hosted the awards ceremony of the three winning entities of the Deja Huella! solidarity Contest at the Hotel Monumento San Francisco.
From there, Amador Castro, president of Fomento de Iniciativas, wanted to stress the idea of “the importance of focusing on what we can do, each one of us, for the society in which we live, a basic question that from Supervision y Control we also formulate in what we can do for our country. And this contest is the result“, he said.
“As we are ambitious, we think the company should be the protagonist in setting out solidarity initiatives, but not only as a key to aid, but getting involved in charity projects”
Carmen Bouso, general director for Work and Social Economy, also stressed that “all those initiatives that can benefit society, workers and the environment are good examples of corporate social responsibility to follow in all companies“, as SYC itv has been carrying out for over 15 years.
Finally, Francisco Conde, Regional Minister of Economy and Industry, said that “solidarity is not a moral requirement, but it should also be a productive one. The people who have stood out the most throughout history are those united in all aspects, like a united fabric“, he noted. In the words of Conde, “Supervisión y Control is a company that uses NGOs to help, a great example when it comes to transforming societies by common pressure“. He also wanted to mention that “corporate social responsibility is a great opportunity to build better companies that meet the social demand of companies by using collective commitments. And SYC is an example of how these commitments should be assumed“, he said.
Finally, Conde congratulated Guillermo Soto, who presented the project of the Meniños Foundation which was the winner in an initiative that, in the words of the Regional Minister, is “a symbol of business ethics that Galicia aspires to achieve“.
