Projects for local communities

Prysmian Group “gives back” to the communities where it does business through cash donations, in-kind donations of cables or equipment, and through the Business Volunteer projects, activating a series of social initiatives that are supported by the contributions of employees who “donate working hours.”

 

Here is a look at some of our community initiatives in 2022:

Support for Ukrainian refugees

Prysmian donated Euro 500,000 to 5 philanthropic organisations (Save the Children, the Salesian Young Volunteers of Krakow, Soleterre, the Sovereign Order of Malta and Progetto Quadrifoglio) and promoted a fundraising campaign among employees with “Rise Against Hunger”, a non-profit organization.

Initiative with CREDA

an Italian non-profit organisation dedicated to preservation of the environment, as part of which Prysmian employees — equipped with pick-up sticks and gloves — collected waste from the gardens in Monza Park.

Donation to Soleterre

Prysmian donated Euro 125,000 for the treatment of paediatric cancer patients. This donation was for the purchase of an ultrasound scanner, now in operation at the San Matteo Hospital in Pavia, and to enable children in need of cancer treatment and their mothers to stay at the hospital.

5. “Women in Manufacturing” (SHE STEMS)

This initiative helps unemployed women in Oman, aged between 18 and 30, who have completed their secondary education. The objective is to help the women to create an opportunity for future employment in the manufacturing sector, including the possibility of recruitment by Oman Cables Industry following the normal selection process.

Energizing your future

The project takes place in Bogotá-Colombia, where the Group has both a factory and offices, and aims to support every year 15 students between 17 and 23 years old coming from problematic background (families victim of the civil war, children with single mothers). Prysmian sponsors to the candidates the fees for a two year and a half school at the Central Technical Institute of Bogotá, after which the students will have access to technical roles.
