On Thursday, June 15, Universidad San Ignacio de Loyola (USIL) was once again named a Socially Responsible Company (SRC) by PERÚ 2021. This honor is a reflection of our effort and commitment to socially responsible management geared toward sustainable development, in line with USIL’s Institutional Pillar of Social Responsibility.
Representing our university at the ceremony were Juan Manuel Ostoja, USIL CEO; Felipe Sparks, vice president of Human Resources; Miu Huang, vice president of Social Responsibility; and Marcela Palacios, head of the Environmental, Social, Occupational Health and Safety Unit, who accepted the distinction received for the third year in a row.
In the 2016-2017 edition, the SRC distinction took into account three key aspects: first, organizational values and culture, comprising factors such as corporate governance and business ethics; second, development of the surrounding environment, focusing on indicators related to the value chain and community relations; and third, risk and impact management, consisting of a company’s practices and policies aimed at minimizing risks and negative impacts of its operations.
This honor is awarded annually to companies and institutions that demonstrate good practices in relation to social responsibility, business ethics and environmental conservation, as well as real ties to the community and a commitment to it.
Through its different areas, USIL will continue to stand firm in its commitment to engage in socially responsible practices.
