MAPFRE vice chairman and MAPFRE Iberia CEO José Manuel Inchausti presented the MAPFRE Inclusión Responsable award to Michelin General Manager, María Paz Robina.

The two executives discussed social commitment and sustainability at the 2nd Annual MAPFRE Observatory on Sustainable Finance Forum.

Michelin was the winner of the second annual MAPFRE Inclusión Responsable award for its commitment to disability policies and labor adaptability – especially in terms of recruitment and integration – and for its efforts to standardize these processes within the company.

MAPFRE vice chairman and MAPFRE Iberia CEO, José Manuel Inchausti, presented the award to Michelin General Manager for Spain and Portugal, María Paz Robina, on Tuesday, November 16, during the 2nd MAPFRE Observatory on Sustainable Finance Forum. “It gives me great pleasure to present this award to Michelin, which has had an official disability policy in place since 2010, endorsed not only in its country of origin, but in all countries it operates in, including Spain. With this award, we wish to recognize that commitment, which we share at MAPFRE and which has become especially important in the context of the ongoing pandemic, highlighting the need for sustainability policies not only for environment and governance, but also in the social sphere,” the MAPFRE executive explained.

The forum also featured a panel discussion involving the leading financial and academic experts on financial profitability and social dividend, and the closing address was given by Montserrat Martínez Parera, vice chairperson of the Spanish National Securities and Exchange Commission (CNMV).

This event was organized as part of the ongoing activities of the MAPFRE Observatory on Sustainable Finance, which was launched last year with the intention of becoming a focal point for MAPFRE and leading academic institutions to promote the development of financial instruments, insurance and pensions that meet socially responsible investment criteria.
