Corporate Social Responsibility
UHY Fay & Co has introduced different CSR measures that translate into a number of economic, social and environmental commitments that add value to the firm’s compliance of all its legal obligations, and has the objective of contributing to the social and economic progress within the framework of a sustainable development.
Our CSR policy takes into account the needs and expectations of our interest groups:

- Society: supporting programs and projects directed to help those social groups that need it the most.
- Environment: optimizing resources and developing recycling processes.
Our CSR policy goes beyond the legal obligations as it voluntary establishes a number of norms and procedures that benefit society and allows the continuous economic growth of the firm.
Three are the responsibility areas assumed by our CSR policy.

We have established recycling procedures with great results. All internal communications and memos, and many external ones too, are sent electronically to save great amounts of paper.
