Prada Group has today launched its Corporate Social Responsibility initiative, while not directly calling others int he industry for action the Italian Fashion House has done so with its work on various projects in the previous years. Regular Design SCENE readers most likely know the recently opened Fondazione Prada in Milan a space which after years of work is now an engaging new hotspot displaying art and various exhibition projects. Moreover the Group also worked on the restoration of Milan’s unique landmark Galleria Vittorio Emmanuele, other projects also celebrated craftsmanship and green architecture through businesses developments.
Corporate Social Responsibility by PRADA is shown in various stories archived on the specially set up page csr.pradagroup.com, where you can read in detail, see videos and photography introducing the effects of those endeavors.
“Beauty, creativity and superior quality have always been the Prada Group’s guiding principles. Nature and humanity are the cornerstones of those principles. Respect for the environment and for individuals underpins our behaviour at all times, both within our company and in the relationship with our partners, suppliers, clients and institutions. This is the way we set about our work – and it is only made possible through the unique contributions of all those who collaborate with us day in and day out” – shared Carlo Mazzi, Chairman of the Board of Directors of Prada Spa
Fondazione Prada as part of the group’s CRS initiative is currently introducing new exhibitions, see on Design SCENE the latest RECTO VERSO.
We believe that corporate social responsibility means broadening one’s scope, becoming aware of the effects of doing business, and of the fact that our actions can contribute to establishing more harmonious relationships with the community. We invest in a unique working environment so that people can develop their competences and their personal expertise, by preserving artisanal skills and supporting innovation. – from Prada Group
One of the projects celebrating the renovation of the renowned Galleria Vittorio Emmanuele in Milan during the now ending 2015 was Caleidoscopio – see more of it on Design SCENE Magazine Pages.
