Oscar photo 1For the 10th consecutive year, Navistar Mexico had been recognized by the Mexican Center for Philanthropy (Centro Mexicano de la Filantropia – CEMEFI) as a Socially Responsible Company (Empresa Socialmente Responsible Award- ERS).

After complying with the established standards in the set areas of economic, social and environmental sustainability, Navistar Mexico has once again demonstrated that it is an organization committed to social, responsible management as part of its culture and business strategy.

The company earned this award through various activities including:

  • Donating gifts and clothing items to children during the holiday season.
  • Collecting different school supplies to help local schools update their classrooms.
  • Planting trees within the community, cleaning up local rivers and donating plastic bottles to a local charity.

Not only has Navistar Mexico supported the surrounding community, but it has also made the company’s employees a priority. Over the past year, the company has offered new opportunities for employees to voice their ideas, proposals and be celebrated more.

Oscar Ruiz, Escobedo Assembly Plant manager, received this award on the company’s behalf on Wednesday, May 15 in Mexico City.

While other companies based in Mexico can receive this award, it’s specifically important to Navistar and the Escobedo plant because this award shows how the company continues to implement new programs to positively impact its community and employees.

The Mexican Center for Philanthropy has been established since 1988 and has offered this award since 2001. CEMEFI is a non-profit association that aims to promote a culture of philanthropy and a high value and social commitment with its collaborators and community.
