Eurofins Scientific (EUFI.PA), the world leader in bioanalytical testing, plans to mark its 30th anniversary by donating €1 million to 40 charities selected by its global workforce. This donation will be in addition to its long-term and ongoing support for several non-governmental organizations (NGOs) including UNICEF and Plan International.
The €1 million donation will target charities that work in areas that, like Eurofins’ testing of foods and pharmaceutical products and of the environment, help make the planet a safer and healthier place to live. The recipient charities fall into five categories: better nutrition, protecting ecosystems, improving health, social entrepreneurship and local communities.
In addition to this financial support, many members of Eurofins’ 30,000-strong workforce will pledge time to volunteer, offer pro bono work and organise events to support their chosen good causes. In each country, volunteer committees were actively involved in choosing organisations that are important to their local area and close to their hearts.
