The Oscars of Sustainability
“For those of us who are part of the PuntoSeguro Program, being selected among the 500 best projects in the Green Awards in 2019, 2021 and 2022, has meant support for the work we do from the eyes of sustainability experts. However, being chosen as finalists in our category consolidates the positive evolution and the strengthening of the culture of environmentally responsible disposal of unusable medicines that we have proposed”, assures Dr. Gustavo SáenzGarcía, executive director of the PuntoSeguro Program.
“Year after year, the entire team is invaded by a feeling of gratitude and enthusiasm every time we make the Ranking of the 500 Best Projects official. This is the reflection of people with the drive to be agents of change. It is synonymous with the fact that sustainability is not a matter of ideological flags but of human beings who choose to place themselves on the right side of history, in which they work to reduce inequalities and build environmental and economic progress in all sectors”, highlights José Javier Guarderas , CEO of Green Awards.
