The Mexican Center for Philanthropy (CEMEFI) has recognized Bemis de Mexico for five consecutive years (2009 - 2013) for being a socially responsible company.
CEMEFI was founded in December 1988 with a mission to promote philanthropic culture and social responsibility in Mexico and strengthen the participation of the society. This award in particular covers four main areas:
- Ethics and Corporate Governance
- Quality of Life in the Company (social work)
- Linking and Commitment to the Community and its Development
- Care and Preservation of the Environment
The CEMEFI award is the first of its kind for a toilet seat manufacturer in Latin America and joins the ranks of other major corporations such as The Home Depot, Wal-Mart, Coca-Cola, and Hewlett-Packard, who have also received this award.
