“Oscar per tutti” Charity (Oscar for everyone)
Since its very beginning, the Group’s commitment has been dedicated to an ambitious project: to spread the Culture of Welfare and Social Wellbeing, while always beginning with the local community.
Thus, in February 2007, in memory of Oscar Venturato, Oscar per tutti, the Group’s non-profit organization was founded with the aim of financing valid research projects to support the professional specialization of young doctors in the oncology field.
Oscar per tutti is: commitment to the future, help for scientific research, prevention, care and hope.
100% Clean Energy
Ongoing innovation also translates into sustainable choices that aim to respect the environment and the local community. All production plants use electricity from renewable sources. Ecological and recyclable materials are also used in production.
All packaging is marked with the Green Dot, which identifies an ecological disposal system for packaging.
