Volunteer Day 2017

More than 300 Iberdrola Mexico employees participated in our 2017 Volunteer Day

Our 2017 Volunteer Day was a special day for Iberdrola Mexico, since it was the first time staff from the La Laguna (in Coahuila State), Dulces Nombres, Monterrey and Ramos (in Nuevo León State) and the Altamira region (in Tamaulipas State) plants participated in this event.

More than 330 employees participated with their families in a variety of activities, including reforestation, farm construction, painting in public areas and public lighting installation and repair activities, benefiting more than 2,000 people.

The company greatly appreciated the energy and effort contributed by each and every one of the volunteers and their families. Volunteer Day is only as big as the people who participate in it, who put on the Iberdrola team shirt and share the Group’s commitment to improving quality of life for the communities where we conduct our operations.

Here is how Iberdrola Mexico’s Volunteer Day looked:
