Integrating social and environmental concerns in our firm's business operations and interactions with all of our stakeholders is a key concept which runs throughout our value chain. We implement effective resource management and energy efficiency practices, engage in charitable philanthropy activities and provide for the fair and ethical treatment of our employees in a healthy workplace. The 3 pillars of our company’s CSR activities can be summarized in three words: Education, Children and the Environment.
We believe that children are the hope for our future generations ahead and therefore we always try to remain close to those most fragile in our society, to assist the less fortunate, in order for them to have the same chance in life as the rest of us.
As the old proverb goes "It takes a village to raise a child." Which emphasizes the importance of community involvement in ensuring the well-being and success of all children, especially those who are disadvantaged.
In this regard, we provide periodical donations to various different NGOs which are focused on improving the lives of children, contributing to Save The Children Organization, a Global Movement to save the lives of children through better education, health care, and economic opportunities, as well as providing emergency aid in natural disasters, war, and other conflicts.
We regularly send donations to Heart To Heart (a special fund of Ren De Foundation, a Shanghai-based charity that provides corrective surgery for Chinese children with congenital heart disease, CHD, whose parents are unable to afford surgery), and the Will Foundation.
In regard to poverty alleviation, our firm also supports charitable NGOs such as Save The Children, and Medici Senza Frontiere (MSF), with periodical donations.
Fit Work Up For Charity
Health, wellness, and wellbeing are our goals, so every day all year long we participate in the Fit Work Up For Charity program.
All our employees share a picture of the physical activity they did for the day, for each picture we collect EUR 1. The goal is to collect EUR 4,000, to be donated to the Heart To Heart foundation to pay for a kid’s heart surgery.
In order to reach our goal even faster, we launched the 30*30 Challenge: the employees that join the competition have to share a picture proving at least 1 hour of physical activity or at least 12,000 steps done in one day, for 30 days without interruption. Those that at the end of the month qualify will have contributed EUR 400 to Heart To Heart foundation!
Giving our best we build a better future for our children.
