In the context of the World Day for the Eradication of Poverty, which was celebrated last October 17, Arteche and Caritas have signed the necessary agreements to start supplying energy to families in disadvantaged situations that the NGO has determined after studying each case individually.
On the occasion of Arteche's 75th anniversary, we organized the Sumando Energías Solidarity Race, a flexible race, without a circuit or route, in which people could participate on foot, by bike or running. The goal of the event was solidarity: to provide electricity supply for a whole year to 75 disadvantaged families in the different regions where Arteche is present. The participants logged kilometers in a mobile application and, thanks to the effort and involvement of everyone, the kilometers needed to go around the world were achieved.
Between October 10 and 19, we held signing ceremonies in Mexico, Brazil, Argentina, Madrid and Bilbao, with the participation of Caritas and Arteche officials from each geography, as well as the people who had completed the most kilometers in each place.
To carry out this solidarity initiative, in addition to the commitment of Caritas, the sum of energies of Iberdrola as gold sponsor has been essential, as well as Jema Irizar Group, Hitachi, Shemar, Krempel, Atlantic Forwarding Spain, Nynas, DSV and Urrutia Logistika as silver and bronze sponsors.
We thank Caritas, all these companies and the participants for their involvement. #SumandoEnergías, we've done it.
