Social
Responsibility

Euro Cosmetic has long been committed in supporting territorial realities, considering them essential elements for the business development. Each sponsored activity was chosen based on ethical and social values, paying particular attention to the weakest or most vulnerable groups.

In December 2018, Euro Cosmetic was awarded the title Ambassador of the territory for economic development and enhancement of the territory of the Lombardy region at the Senate of the Republic.

Over the years, many activities have been undertaken to support the values in which it believes.

Always a strong advocate of youth training, the company has provided several Scholarships over time, in collaboration with the Intercultura association, to guarantee the possibility of having a study experience abroad for the children of its employees and/or to young Trenzanese and/or neighbouring organizations.

The management’s strong belief in supporting young people’s talent and sport has led Euro Cosmetic for years, as main sponsor, to take the field with the Champions of Brescia Calcio Femminile (Brescia Women Football team). Quality and commitment are the elements that unite the two realities.

Euro Cosmetic is in support of the socially vulnerable groups, for this reason it has chosen to allocate the Customers Christmas gift 2018 to the “La Zebra Onlus” association committed in the creation of the new “Paediatric Magnetic Resonance” department at the Children’s Hospital of Brescia.

Furthermore, considering the strong female component employed in the company, it has chosen to support initiatives in supporting women. On Women’s Day, Euro Cosmetic supported the foundation Doppia Difesa Onlus (Double Defence Onlus), for the consultancy and assistance activities that the Foundation carries out for women victims of violence.

Every year RACE FORE THE CURE is supported, a running race with charitable purposes, organised by the SUSAN G. KOMEN Italia. Association. The association deals with breast cancer prevention by stimulating training, research and innovation in the female health field.
