Cemusa receives award for its social commitment

Mr. Eric Marotel, CEMUSA’s Managing Director, was presented with the award by Her Royal Highness the Princess of Asturias during the official ceremony held by FEDER in the General Council of the Judiciary headquarters in order to celebrate World Rare Disease Day. Ana Mato, the Minister for Health, Social Affairs and Equality, and Carlos Divar, the Chair of the General Council of the Judiciary, were among the personalities attending the event.

Every year, the Spanish Federation of Rare Diseases presents the FEDER awards to the best initiatives, individuals or projects which help to improve the quality of life of families living with rare diseases. In 2012 edition, CEMUSA has received the “Solidarity with those affected” Award for supporting the awareness-raising and sensitizing actions carried out by FEDER to celebrate Rare Disease Day.

Vocento Group, Dia Group and the Spanish Committee of Representatives of People with Disabilities (CERMI) were among the organizations awarded in other categories.

 

 

CEMUSA began to collaborate with FEDER in 2009 and since then has helped by allowing the free use of their advertising space to promote campaigns launched by FEDER in order to raise awareness on the existence and problems of these diseases. In 2011 in particular, CEMUSA used the street furniture of many Spanish cities to advertise their awareness raising campaign using the image of football player Andrés Iniesta.

In the field of corporate social responsibility, CEMUSA, in line with the commitment of the FCC Group, collaborates regularly with organizations such as Unicef, Doctors without Borders, the Foundation against Drugs, and the World Nature Forum by enabling them to use their advertising space to disseminate their messages, showing that street furniture has a social and public service role for the benefit of all citizens.
