Supporting the most vulnerable as well as people in difficulty and the promotion of volunteer initiatives for disadvantaged communities are issues about which the Group feels strongly; such feelings are translated into practical help through the creation and development of numerous initiatives.
A recovery and job placement project for unemployed or disadvantaged people. It makes gadgets by reusing Fincantieri's promotional materials otherwise destined for disposal. In 2020, 1,000 art shopping bags were created for Fincantieri.
ANDREA DORIA INSTITUTE
Support for welfare activities aimed at the children of fallen sailors and who are in a particularly difficult economic situation. The institute, founded in 1917, has assisted in the last ten years on average 110 children every year, through a concrete and constant help, such as annual grants, scholarship awards and quarterly contributions.
In order to further sustain communities and based on the requirements of the territories, Fincantieri has signed a joint working agreement for charitable purposes with the Banco Alimentare (Food Bank) of the Liguria and Marche Regions and with the companies that provide catering services in the shipyards of Muggiano and Ancona. Under these initiatives, which replicate similar experiences already underway at the Sestri Ponente and Riva Trigoso shipyards, Fincantieri donates the food not eaten at the shipyard canteens in order to redistribute it to charities that support and help the poor and, more generally, people in need.
