IBSA’s concept of Corporate Social Responsibility lends itself to a broader concept of sharing, creating a stimulating climate aimed at improving life both within the group and in the surrounding region.
CSR develops mainly at international level and is then established locally, with social projects and activities that interpret the motivations and needs of the different regions in which the company operates.
With this in mind, IBSA has set up three FOUNDATIONS:
- IBSA Foundation for scientific research: an international non-profit organization set up in Lugano in 2012, which promotes research, spreads scientific culture and educates young students through forums, workshops, study grants and publications. It plays an active role in increasing public awareness of healthcare issues, quality of life and care of the individual. www.ibsafoundation.org
- IBSA Foundation for children: the main goal of this foundation is the management of the Primi Passi IBSA nursery for 30 children aged 4 months to 4 years old, created to offer practical help to IBSA employees and the local population in the Lugano area, where IBSA’s headquarters are located. www.nidoprimipassi.ch
- IBSA Foundation for the pension fund of employees: the aim of this foundation is to manage the assets in the pension fund of IBSA employees in Switzerland and offers superior services to those required by local law.
