On 26th February 2016, Damiani collected the Ethical Company Prize in the prestigious setting of “Roma Eventi” Congress Centre in Piazza di Spagna.
At its eighth edition, the ‘Congress on the Criminal Liability of Bodies’ annually attracts nearly 700 participants. The event is organized under the patronage of the European Commission, Ministry of Home Affairs, Ministry of Justice, Ministry of Economic Development, Ministry of Simplification and Public Administration and Lazio Region.
The convention marked the distribution of ‘Award 231’ that aims at recognising companies and professionals who have distinguished themselves for their conduct in business.
Damiani has bagged the prize “for having proved that passion, seriousness and constant endeavour in work spawn excellence. Such perfection has made its presence felt even in the global charity sector: to name a few, the efforts in favour of the tsunami victims, supplying drinking water wells in Africa, and raising funds for the reconstruction of Nepal after the earthquake that wrecked the country on 25th April 2015. All evidence of the high-level commitment that makes Damiani stand out both in its field of work and in the domain of solidarity.”
Moreover, in order to guarantee the highest level of transparency and information to consumers, in 2011 Damiani became the first ever hard-luxury company in the world to publish its prices on the website, now available online in as many as 8 currencies.
“It’s a great honour to receive this prize which is an additional confirmation of how much Damiani is liked not just for its creations but also for the humanitarian commitment which it manages to lavish alongside its core business. Damiani prides itself on a long tradition of support and commitment towards social and women’s issues”. Furthermore – adds Guido Damiani President of the Group and representative of the third generation now running the company – “We are firmly convinced that a transparent governance as well as corporate social responsibility are imperative for the company to be in synch with the environment it wishes to do business with, and to ensure itself and the society at large conditions worthy of its history and its century old tradition.”
