The Honduran subsidiary was rewarded for its commitment to corporate social responsibility and the wellbeing of its workers and their communities.

In July, Fundahrse carried out an audit of Sol Group’s operations in southern Honduras to evaluate the company’s compliance with seven key indicators of its Indicarse tool, an international guide on corporate social responsibility, obtaining an average score of 96 per cent.

Fyffes said that since 2021, Sol Group in Honduras had gone through an ”exhaustive transformation process” in which social responsibility, including labour relations, the environment, surrounding communities, and human rights had been the centre for implementing new practices and developing new policies.

“We are very proud for being recognised as a socially responsible company for a second year,” said Michael Fletes, sustainability coordinator of Sol Group. “This demonstrates our commitment and our progress in integrating sustainable practices in the different areas of our organisation.

“We will continue working each day to further contribute to the wellbeing of the world, our workers, communities, and other stakeholders.”

Genivaldo Pereira, general manager of Fyffes/Sol Group, added: “This recognition reflects our policy to act as socially responsible company together with the communities in the different areas where we operate in Honduras.

“It also demonstrates our commitment to driving sustainable economic development in Honduras through the creation and promo-on of an inclusive, equitable and prosperous environment.

”Fundahrse’s Seal renews our commitment to continue working on the three fundamental pillars of corporate social responsibility that encompass economic, social, and environmental responsibility,” he added.
