Vitro Shares Corporate Social Responsibility Strategy
April 9, 2012

Hugo A. Lara García, CEO of Vitro, recently offered a presentation on the company's sustainability practices as well as the challenges on this issue in a global environment at the Business Leaders Forum hosted by the Mexican Center for Philanthropy and the Alliance for Social Responsibility in Mexico, according to information provided by the company.

"The main challenge we have faced to continue working on this topic is the scarcity of financial resources," says Lara. "Thus, we look for every initiative we support to be financially self-sufficient in the short term."

In 2011 Vitro trained 100 percent of its employees to comply with its code of Business Conduct and Professional Ethics, according to the company. The company also collected 192,506 tons of glass for recycling, where 80,172 tons represented flat glass and 112,334 tons glass containers.
