The general secretary of CREEX has stressed that there is greater awareness in society about the importance of the work carried out by Third Sector entities, "for their contribution to improving the opportunities of those who would be at risk of socially excluded, and, why not say it, because the very action of these entities also generates an economy induced in the form of employment and creation of wealth ".

" For the business leader, "for a long time now, the business community has assumed that its job is not only to create jobs and wealth, which is already a lot, but also contribute to improve within their possibilities the social environment in which they operate, and this is a good medium ".

In addition, he has insisted that With this possibility "free and voluntary" everyone wins, since the company increases its social value and its responsibility to the environment and third sector entities can have funds to develop social projects that benefit everyone.
