Reading Time: 2 minutes

CSRBuenos Aires, July 2011. – Since its early beginnings, Hexacta has been committed to various corporate social responsibility (CSR) programs, granting resources and more than 1600 hours per-year of its staff to carry them out.
Hexacta’s corporate social responsibility programs group all the actions taken in order to improve the quality of life of the community in which Hexacta operates as well as to contribute to social equity and environmental awareness.
The engine of these programs are Hexacta’s people, since the staff volunteers either to be part in the development of the projects that fulfill specific needs of non-profit organizations (NPO), or to become a member of the committee that assesses the scope and impact of the different projects.
Despite of the difficult global economic situation, in 2011 the company decided to continue and expand the program. These are the projects that had been awarded with budget and staff time to be carried out during the present fiscal year:
