Honduran Company Recognized Again for CSR initiatives, Outstanding Commitment to Local Communities and Sustainability
Dinant has funded 12 teachers in the Leán and Aguán valleys of Honduras since 1997.
TEGUCIGALPA, HONDURAS, 18 October 2019: For the 11 th year running, Dinant has been recognized for its outstanding commitment to local communities and its sustainable operations. At a recent awards ceremony in San Pedro Sula, Dinant was one of only 70 companies in Honduras to receive the title of Empresa Socialmente Responsible – or “Socially Responsible Business” – presented by FUNDAHRSE, a non-profit organization that promotes respect for ethical values, local communities and the environment throughout business.
Dinant Spokesman, Roger Pineda, commented, “People are at the heart of Dinant’s success and at the core of our values. Social responsibility is embedded as a principle of our business model. Everyone at Dinant is delighted, but not surprised, that the company has received this prestigious award yet again. It is an honor that our 7,500 hard-working staff thoroughly deserve.”
For several years, Dinant has used its size and scale to drive transformative changes in many parts of Honduras. Recent highlights include:
Mr. Pineda continued, “The key to Dinant’s success is engaging peacefully and respectfully with local neighboring communities. As well as making significant contributions to many communities, we also listen to local people via our regional Community Grievance Mechanisms. These enable people impacted by our operations to communicate with us in a variety of ways, and we in turn do our best to provide constructive solutions to problems that people identify, such as alleviating dust caused by trucks carrying African Palm fresh fruit bunches or providing some community members with better access to their properties. I am delighted that our staff’s tremendous efforts have been recognized yet again.”
In addition, at a separate ceremony last month, SUMMA magazine and Korn Ferry, the global management consulting firm, presented Dinant with an award in recognition of the company’s efforts as a leader in sustainability.
