Corporate Responsibility

Philanthropic initiatives

Carefully identified and targeted sponsorship projects are at the core of the Group’s social policy. In 2010, as in previous years, these have been focused mainly on children and young people in the areas of healthcare, access to education, promotion of talent, sport and physical fitness, and the creation of opportunities.

Notable recent projects have included sponsorship of youth equestrian clubs, support for the preparation and publication of a book of children’s drawings, and organization of charity events in support of the local children’s hospitals. The Group also actively supports local veterans of the railway industry and disabled people.
