The CEN approach to Corporate Social Responsibility is to contribute to a sustainable society, preserve environmental resources and promote education and culture throughout all social classes.
Our initiatives include:
-The College Horizons Scholarship Program, which was developed in conjunction with the United States Embassy, has benefited 218 students between 14 and 16 years old that are from under privileged provinces. The program objective is to expand each student’s horizons so that they may have the opportunity to participate in university projects that can improve their living conditions.
