  • The recognition of ‘Exceptional Companies’ was awarded for the activities carried out by the Community Development department, which aim to improve the quality of life of its residents.
  • Grupo México achieved this distinction among the 137 submissions made to a council comprised of chambers of commerce and business organizations.

Grupo México received the ‘Exceptional Companies’ recognition, awarded by the Coordinating Business Council, the Institute for Quality Promotion, and the Communication Council, for maintaining social practices that address the needs of the communities where it operates.

According to the jury that, from a social perspective, evaluated the 137 submissions from companies across various industrial sectors throughout the country, Grupo México’s Community Development Model stands out for its implementation, results, and how its activities contribute to improving the quality of life in communities where the company operates.

In Mexico, the model translates into 17 community centers called ‘Casa Grande,’ where the population has the opportunity to engage in artistic, cultural, entrepreneurial, as well as sports, physical fitness, health, environmental activities, among others, for people of all ages. “Furthermore, in addition to the value that this recognition holds for Grupo México in terms of the daily work carried out in the communities through Casa Grande, it also represents an award for all those who, as volunteers, participants, students, and family members, make it possible for these efforts to become actions that have a lasting impact on the quality of life of each of the residents in the areas where we are present,” stated Irma Potes, Director of Community Development at Grupo México.

The flagship projects of Grupo México that received recognition for ‘Good Practices’ include: Casa Grande Móvil, which takes the aforementioned activities on the road to different parts of the country; also The Community Care Service, which addresses the concerns, questions, and issues of the population through various communication channels; The Youth Orchestras and Choirs project, which originated in Nacozari de García, Sonora, four years ago and has expanded to 10 communities in Mexico and Peru, providing music education to children as young as 4 years old and young people up to 22 years of age.

With this distinction, the Mobile Documentary Film Workshop received a new recognition for becoming a program that gives a voice to the residents of mining communities through audiovisual language and the participation of local members who learn about filmmaking and create short films and documentaries.
