OMA Receives Certification as a

“Socially Responsible Company”

 

Monterrey, Mexico, March 12, 2008 -- Grupo Aeroportuario del Centro Norte, known as OMA, received recognition for the first time as a Socially Responsible Company (ESR) for 2008 from the Mexican Center for Philanthropy, or CEMEFI, and the Alliance for Corporate Social Responsibility, AliaRSE. The delivery of the certification took place as part of the ESR 2008 awards ceremony in Mexico City yesterday.

 

According to CEMEFI, “The ESR logo certifies a company to its employees, investors, customers, public officials, and society in general for having publicly assumed the commitment for management practices that are socially responsible as part of their culture and business strategy, and for having supported compliance with the standards proposed in four areas of Social Responsibility: quality of life within the company, business ethics, community ties, and care for and preservation of the environment.”

 

Rubén López, OMA’s CEO, said, “The recognition of OMA as a Socially Responsible Company motivates all of us to continue developing programs that benefit our people and the communities where we operate.”

 

OMA’s vision of Social Responsibility has been turned into integrated policies, practices, and actions that result in an express commitment to:

employees and their families,

the communities where we operate,

airport users and business partners, and

protection of the environment.
