Action Innocence Genève
May 2013: Piaget participated in the annual gala to support the association Action Innocence Geneva.
Piaget has supported Action Innocence since its creation over 10 years ago and it is with great pride that the CEO, Philippe Léopold-Metzger, lends his support to this cause. Since its creation in 1999, Action Innocence has fought to preserve the dignity and integrity of children on the Internet. The association actively participates in the fight against the trafficking of child pornography files on the Internet by participating in the development of police initiatives and efficient solutions for the detection of child pornography suppliers. The combat, first initiated by the founding president, Valerie Wertheimer and his colleagues in Switzerland, has since spread to Brussels, Monaco and France. The association promotes and raises funds at events and galas supported by many celebrities who are committed to this fight.
Association for Bateau Genève
May 2013: Piaget participated in the annual gala to support the Association Bateau Genève.
Bateau Genève is a ship docked at the commercial port of Eaux-Vives. Often viewed by its passengers as an "island within the city," it is a harbour for people in difficulty. The organisation is managed by the Association pour le Bateau Genève, which distributes nearly two hundred breakfasts every morning, Monday through Friday. Since January, weekly computer classes have also been on offer thanks to Piaget's donation of ten computers. The classes are full every week!
Our employees’ well-being is a key part of Piaget and Groupe Richemont’s CSR policy. This means good working conditions on both our own premises and those of our commercial partners.
