Research and Health
The pandemic emergency has further strengthened the importance of investment in research and people’s health.
The scientific research progress that AIRC has been promoting and supporting for over 50 years found its biggest supporter in Banco BPM, which is convinced of the value it brings to the community and the development of the country.
That is why we work alongside AIRC as an institutional fundraising partner to support scientific research and to disseminate correct information on cancer prevention, diagnosis and treatment.
We support AVIS in promoting blood donation and a healthy lifestyle through a unique form of collaboration.
Beginning in 2015, blood donation within the company, during working hours, has continued to increase year after year in terms of the number of days, branches involved, donors and blood bags collected.
This initiative has created a virtuous circle of collective and personal responsibility.
For our partnership with AVIS, on 23 October 2018, Banco BPM received the important honourable mention at the annual AIFIn “Sustainability Awards”.
Also in 2021 the partnership with AVIS is continued and six days were organised in Milan and two in Rome, during which 150 colleagues were able to donate a total of 122 bags of blood.
