City of Guadalupe, Mexico receives WCCD ISO 37120 Platinum Certification in Virtual Presentation

For Immediate Release

August 28th, 2020

Joining Mayor Cristina Diaz, in a virtual certification ceremony, the WCCD President and CEO, Dr. Patricia McCarney, officially presented the City of Guadalupe with WCCD ISO 37120 Platinum Certification. As the WCCD network of data-driven Mexican cities continues to grow, Guadalupe becomes the seventh City in Mexico to become ISO 37120 certified. Reporting over 90 of the 104 indicators within ISO 37120, Guadalupe's Platinum certification is the highest level of WCCD ISO certification.

Speaking today, Dr. McCarney highlighted the commitment of both Mayor Diaz and the City of Guadalupe in harnessing WCCD ISO 37120 to drive a more sustainable, smart, resilient, prosperous and inclusive future for the City.

"It is truly a pleasure for me to join you today. As the newest member of the growing WCCD Network in Mexico, Guadalupe's commitment to standardized city data is an example to other Mexican cities, and cities across the globe, as to the power of data in driving evidence-based decision making, while improving city services and quality of life," stated Dr. McCarney from Toronto. "This occasion is also an opportunity to personally extend my congratulations to Mayor Diaz, who has been a long-standing supporter of the WCCD. Mayor Diaz, I look forward to the possibility of visiting your beautiful city soon and the WCCD is standing by to support you in any way that we can, as we continue to grow the WCCD network across Nuevo Leon and Mexico."

Guadalupe, which lies adjacent to the City of Monterrey, is the second-largest city in the State of Nuevo Leon, with a population of 720,743. Mayor Cristina Diaz has been a long-term supporter of the WCCD, and was instrumental in welcoming some of the first members of the WCCD network of cities in Mexico in 2014.
