Forética celebrates its 20th anniversary in 2019. In these 20 years it has become the reference organization in the practical incorporation of the social responsibility and sustainability agenda for hundreds of companies, organizations and public institutions in Spain and Latin America.

It is an honor and a great responsibility to assume the presidency of Forética at this time and my first words are of gratitude for the trust and recognition of a legacy that has allowed us to modernize business practices, understand global trends, establish policies and enable us to adapt products, services and operations to the most important challenge we face today: sustainability.

Just over three years have passed since the adoption of the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) and the Paris Agreement. Two decisive frameworks that have made governments, companies and civil society aware of the ability to work together to respond to social, environmental and governance challenges. Despite these commitments, we are witnessing that the speed of technological change, the urgency of climate change and the need for employability are continuous demands from society, which is increasingly looking to companies to question their purpose and whether it includes the search for the greatest positive impact on people and the environment.

It is precisely this understanding of their responsible purpose, this determination to minimize risks and maximize their positive impact, and the realization that responsible and sustainable companies are better in every way, is at the core of Forética's daily work. We will never tire of repeating that companies that incorporate responsible and sustainable management attract the best talent, repay the trust of their investors, resist market shocks with greater strength, are more successful in the long term and contribute to social cohesion, to making a better community, a better country and a better planet.

It is true that the sustainability agenda is increasingly complex. It speaks of climate change, biodiversity and circular economy. Of transparency, integrity and good governance. Of social impact, health, human rights and the future of work. It speaks of each of these aspects individually and all of them combined.
So, in the face of increasing complexity and uncertainty, there has been no more important time than now to collaborate. For organizations and professionals who are leaders in social responsibility and sustainability to contribute, together with Forética, to champion responsible leadership in response to the new challenges and opportunities that arise.

We know that on many occasions this is not the easiest or most comfortable path, but we have the vision, teams and determination to move towards a sustainable future where companies are key players.
I hope to count on each of you in this task and of course you will have me at your disposal from today so that, working together, the road to sustainability will be a success.
