Mexico City, October 12, 2021 – Today Iberdrola Mexico was awarded the Exceptional Companies Recognition by the Communication Council and the Institute for the Promotion of Quality, for its Pandemic Mitigation and Safe Return to Work Plan implemented in response to the challenges of the COVID-19 pandemic.

This award recognizes companies and institutions that have contributed to the country’s economic reactivation through outstanding practices to ensure an agile response to the pandemic, emphasizing solidarity, leadership, and business innovation.

The award was granted to the Pandemic Mitigation and Safe Return to Work Plan implemented by Iberdrola Mexico in the Social Support and Commitment category and includes preventive measures for its employees and suppliers, measures to guarantee energy supply for its customers and support programs for the communities where the company is present.

“During this health crisis, Iberdrola Mexico managed to guarantee the electricity supply to our customers, at all times prioritizing the health and well-being of our employees. In addition, we reinforced our commitment to the communities where we are present with donations of medical supplies and food packages to public institutions and vulnerable families throughout the country”, said Iberdrola Mexico CEO, Enrique Alba.

“Exceptional companies are the ones that stand out because they have certain capabilities, skills or talents that differentiate them from the other companies and, when they come into play, these qualities transcend and benefit others,” said Francisco X. Casanueva, chairman of the Board of Directors of Instituto para el Fomento a la Calidad (Institute for the Promotion of Quality).

The plan implemented by Iberdrola Mexico in response to the pandemic featured different spheres of action, such as the creation of local, national and global emergency committees, the appointing of medical personnel at each work center and the modification of processes to guarantee efficiency in power plant operations without putting the health of staff at risk.

During the pandemic, the company also donated 15,000 packages with food and hygiene products along with two million units of medical supplies, such as surgical masks, N95 respirators, medical coveralls, antibacterial gel, face shields and intensive care ventilators, in 20 states throughout Mexico.
