Arricano social projects are among the top 25 Best CSR programs in Ukraine
The team of the business publication "Power of money" (Vlast deneg) has prepared a rating of "Top-25 best CSR programs" implemented by companies in Ukraine. According to this publication, "the rating includes programs initiated by large Ukrainian companies, whose goal is to meet high international standards.". All CSR programs are implemented in Ukrainian society, for Ukrainians and are the embodiment of the practice of global trends in business responsibility. When compiling the rating, we used data from open sources, official information of the company, media reports and opinions of industry experts, as well as achieved positive results of implemented CSR programs.
Arricano's social projects were noticed, analyzed and included in the rating "Top 25 Best CSR programs in Ukraine". After all, the company's CSR portfolio includes a number of educational, cultural, artistic and eco-initiatives. Only in 2020, the company implemented Сool School educational studios with teachers and schoolchildren of the Desnianskyi district of Kyiv and the exhibition "For children about Art&Fashion" in the RayON shopping mall, the social survey "Modern Woman" in the City Mall and Sun Gallery shopping malls, discussions "On Culture and Social Space" in Prospekt shopping mall. Arricano also supported the creation of a technological 3D design of "Sofiia Kyivska" with relief signs in Braille.
"This year, Arricano adopted the environmental, social and corporate governance (ESG) policy, which is a key component of the company's strategy. Even during lockdowns, we continued to develop social initiatives in communication and charity, responding to the needs of communities. In the spring of 2020, we purchased special equipment for the hospital in Kryvyi Rih, helped pensioners in Kyiv and Zaporizhzhia. It is important for me to direct social initiatives for children and adolescents, to promote their harmonious upbringing and development. This year we held a crowdfunding project in City Mall shopping centre in Zaporizhzhia. By the end of the year, several socially influential initiatives have been planned. The sites of our shopping malls serve as spaces that unite communities. It is inspiring that Ukrainians vividly support our initiatives and are ready to help those who need them," said Anna Chubotina, CEO of Arricano.
"At the moment, Arricano is the only company in this rating of the top 25 CSR programs representing the development market in Ukraine. I am convinced that the responsibility of business to the public is a powerful force, with intellectual, analytical, communication and financial and investment assets to improve the quality of certain aspects of life in society. I appreciate all the initiatives of companies that invest in educational projects, landscaping, and environmental initiatives. I am pleased that this rating has demonstrated multi-vector nature and a wide geography of social responsibility. We will continue the company's planned CSR path in cooperation with communities in the cities where the shopping malls operate and develop our social portfolio, including humanitarian innovations," added Olena Obukhivska, Communications Director at Arricano.
Arricano expresses its gratitude to the "Power of money" publication for its analysis, rating and drawing the attention of the Ukrainian business community to the importance of CSR-programs.
