Integrating social and environmental concerns in our firm's business operations and interactions with all of our stakeholders is a key concept which runs throughout our value chain. We implement effective resource management and energy efficiency practices, engage in charitable philanthropy activities and provide for the fair and ethical treatment of our employees in a healthy workplace. The 3 pillars of our company’s CSR activities can be summarized in three words: Education, Children and the Environment.
All students are like seeds, if nourished and educated, they will grow into fruitful trees that can bear the fruits of knowledge and wisdom for generations to come.
In order to help create the leaders of tomorrow, we collaborate with educational institutions at every level, including junior, middle and high schools as well as universities.
For junior and middle school students, we have established a partnership with Gianni Rodari Middle School in Cappelle sul Tavo, Teramo University.
We provide scholarship opportunities to the winners of the competition, “The Italy That I Wish For” which is a theme for the students of the last year of junior school to draft an essay in order to express their vision of how Italy can and should be. The two competition winners shall receive a scholarship to purchase books for their first year of high school.
Our firm has concluded important agreements with educational institutions over the years, including the Italian Università di Teramo, Shanghai Jiao Tong University, Nanjing University, and Sichuan International Studies University – Department of Italian Language and Nanjing Normal University – Department of Italian Language connecting Chinese students with Italian companies’ community and helping them find internship and working opportunities.
Students Exchange Program
Our firm concluded an important agreement between the Italian Università di Teramo and Shanghai Jiao Tong University for an exchange program that will enable Italian students to come to Shanghai Jiao Tong University and Chinese students to go to Università di Teramo. Two of the students will also receive a scholarship from D’Andrea & Partners Legal Counsel.
Our firm has also collaborated with D'Annunzio University of Chieti in Pescara and the University of Yancheng in Jiangsu Province to promote educational cooperation and person-to-person exchanges between Italy and China by facilitating opportunities for the exchange of students and professors between the two institutions.
University Course Program
Our firm holds the course “Introduction to Italian Civil and Commercial Law”: 16 classes that will give credits and will include also special guests from Italian Institutions and Italian firms’ top managers.
The best students of the course will also earn a scholarship provided by D’Andrea & Partners Legal Counsel and the possibility to have an internship in our firm.
The creation of such courses, scholarships and internships are aimed at fostering a better relationship between Italy and China, driven by the belief that greater awareness of the legal framework of the two countries can lead to increased cultural understanding.
