The Chiesi Foundation was established in 2005 to celebrate the 70th anniversary of Chiesi Farmaceutici SpA.
The Foundation's mission is to spread scientific knowledge in the research sectors that are of special importance for the company, such as neonatology, respiratory and some niche diseases, and to support the company's interests in Social Responsibility. www.fondazionechiesi.org Chiesi commitment in Spain Chiesi Spain has developed a CSR project based on three factors: Commitment to the way of doing Business, Commitment to the organisation's People and Commitment to Society, because “Our Commitment is Yours”.
Each of these points is led by different committees that propose and organise activities consistent with each area: Commitment to the way of doing Business: Work in line with good governance, communication and transparency in the way of doing business. Commitment to the organisation's People: Focused on caring for employees, such as, for instance: healthy habits, promoting internal relations through gamification, etc. Commitment to Society: Fostering collaboration with the nearest social REALITY.
The goal is to involve people from throughout the organisation who voluntarily wish to participate in the proposed activities, with their time, their energy, their efforts and their commitment.
