BOWLING GREEN, Ky.- Fruit of the Loom receives the Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) Seal from FundaciÃ³n HondureÃ±a de Responsabilidad Social Empresarial (FUNDAHRSE). The 2017 award marks the ninth consecutive time the company has earned this distinction.
Based in Honduras, FUNDAHRSE annually awards the CSR seal to recognized companies for their efforts in community relations and business practices related to operations and labor. Fruit of the Loom notes these attributes are “an integral part” of the company’s business strategy in the Central American country.
“We are proud to be recognized as a FUNDAHRSE CSR seal recipient,” says Melissa Burgess Taylor, CEO of Fruit of the Loom. “Corporate social responsibility is a key focus of our company and to be awarded for these efforts shows we are on track to continue significant, responsible, and sustainable growth in Honduras.”
The company’s contributions to the local community include programs such as health fairs for more than 50,000 employees and families, education services for local children, and an annual walkathon that benefits the area’s public hospital, Mario Catarino Rivas. Fruit of the Loom also participates in reforestation programs in the region.
The company also took home the award in Nov. 2016 following a ceremony in the capital city of Tegucigalpa.
