MEXICO CITY – March 17, 2010 – Softtek, a global provider of IT and business process solutions and the largest private IT service provider in Latin America, announced that it has been recognized by the Mexican Center for Philanthropy (CEMEFI in Spanish)  as Socially Responsible Company (ESR® in Spanish).

As part of their socially responsible initiatives, Softtek created its “Go-Save” and “Go-Recycle” programs, both of which promote the sustainable, environmentally-conscious use of water, electric energy and office consumption. These programs also helped Softtek to achieve significant savings in the use of water and energy, while preventing water contamination.
