Corporate Social Responsibility
“Our quest for excellence and our passion for beauty provide the foundation for all the PRADA Group’s endeavours, and from the outset these have been allied with our commitment to civil society’s fundamental values: respect for the environment and observance of ethical principles. Our determination to pursue these objectives is expressed in our corporate culture, in our relations both with institutions and with our partners all along the chain of production, and in the cultural projects we undertake for the benefit of the community in every place where our Group has a presence.
Our distinctive approach to all our design, development and manufacturing combines attention to detail with a never-ending quest for solutions that transcend the everyday by marrying tradition with innovation to make products that are universally recognized as embodying a unique style and quality. This the way we set about our work – and it is only made possible through the irreplaceable contributions of all those who work with us day in, day out.
The communities and local areas where we work are a very rich source of inspiration, which is why we respect and protect them, always looking for ways to operate in harmony with the spirit of the place. We aim to stimulate the same sensitive approach throughout our sector – and with all our own partners in particular – so as to help develop a culture of sustainability in our industry.
We consider it one of our social responsibilities as a business to broaden our horizons and consider the consequences of what we do, so that our activities steer economic development in the direction of a more sustainable balance. This is an ambitious goal, one which we intend to pursue not only by constantly taking the greatest care in running the business but also by promoting culture in all its various forms: culture as a source of inspiration, the opportunity for free expression, and the harmonizing of interests among individuals and peoples.
Our objective is long-term growth, something we can only achieve by careful maintenance and continuous improvement knowledge and skill, by meeting the strictest international standards and by coming up to the expectations of all our stakeholders. In 2014 we have made further progress in giving the PRADA Group new ways of listening and responding to these various stakeholders. Our recently established Social Responsibility Committee is charged with defining and promoting our culture and strategy of attending to the environment, sustainability and compliance with ethical principles within our own organization, with our partners throughout the value chain and in the communities where we are at home. With this in mind we have begun various projects intended to foster a debate on sustainability and intercultural relations, especially as concerns our own field. We intend to develop a channel we can use to provide constant updates and further details on these matters, for they are ones we consider particularly important.”
