In celebration of the company's 40th anniversary, PAMP joined with the municipality of its hometown of Castel San Pietro, Switzerland to launch a new service initiative for the benefit its local community. The Corporate Volunteer Initiative gives PAMP employees the opportunity to provide vital assistance to Castel San Pietro in the areas of ecology, childcare and elder care.

    As part of this initiative, the precious metal refinery has offered its employees the opportunity to dedicate part of their work hours to a variety of volunteer activities in the area. Over 100 PAMP employees have taken part in the local initiative.

    Many of the activities proposed focused on the municipal technical office and the local homes for the senior residents of Castel San Pietro. The tasks included providing recreational activities for the seniors and performing general maintenance of the technical office's footpath and playground.

    According to Alessia Ponti, mayor of Castel San Pietro, the initiative and its response surpassed all expectations.
    "For our part, we are very pleased that a company on our territory has decided to invest for an activity of this kind, making themselves available to the community and becoming acquainted with the population,” Ponti said. “I am struck by the accession by such a large number of employees, and by the professionalism with which they have carried out the assigned tasks."

    PAMP CEO, Nadia Haroun was very pleased with the outcome of the intiative and found that PAMP's collaborators in the community and municipality appreciated the support.

    "For our 40th anniversary we wanted to do something that went beyond our consolidated collaborations with AS Castello and Istituto Sant'Angelo di Loverciano, and that involved the whole company,” Haroun said. “We are very happy with the response from the collaborators and the spirit with which they have dealt with the various activities.”

    PAMP has been unwavering in its desire to remain an integral part of its surrounding community and that commitment remains a top priority of its social and environmental responsibility efforts.
