- The association won the 2022 Social Value Awards for this initiative that combines social action with the circular economy
Fundación Cepsa visited the Apropadis 2.0 headquarters in Algeciras, recognizing them as the 2022 Social Value Award winner for their Sustainable Physiotherapy project.
The initiative entails supplying essential material and personal resources to maintain a highly sought-after service: physiotherapy. The goal is not only to enhance the quality of life and health of people with disabilities, but also to promote environmental awareness and align with the principles of the circular economy. This involves reusing and recycling materials, as well as upgrading lighting in the therapy room to enhance energy efficiency at the headquarters. Thanks to the Sustainable Physiotherapy program, approximately thirty users are now receiving the care they need.
During her visit, Fundación Cepsa head Estrella Blanco praised “the efforts of an organization like Apropadis, which has successfully reshaped a fundamental and necessary service to combine social action with a just energy transition. They haven’t simply maintained the physiotherapy service; their headquarters is now more energy efficient, thanks to the Social Value Awards.”
The Social Value Awards
These awards are one of the stand-out initiatives of Fundación Cepsa. The aim of the awards is to provide support to individuals, associations, and underprivileged sectors of society so as to foster a spirit of solidarity and promote educational and sustainable development through the involvement of Cepsa staff, who sponsor the programs that the associations of the Campo de Gibraltar region submit as candidates to receive the Social Value Awards. The 2023 call for submissions is currently underway and will close on September 28th.
