Opening up to the region, partnerships with organizations and local stakeholders and good citizenship with respect to the community are important aspects of local integration. At Arkopharma, this local integration is conveyed by active support for local charities for real, citizen action.
Acting in Favor of Respect with Solidarsport
Passing on messages and building bridges, establishing codes for living and acting together – such are the aims of SOLIDARSPORT, a charity from Nice, with a program of actions based on respect.
The charity organizes citizen days on a local level, uniting school children and sometimes children with disabilities; giving the youngest members of society a chance to reflect on what Respect means, whether that is respecting others, oneself, rules, the environment, your word, a commitment, citizen duties, or simply, life.
As Respect is also part of the founding values of the company (Audacity, Respect, Creativity, Humanity and Excellence), Arkopharma is proud to be a partner of this charity and help foster a young, responsible citizen-focused generation. In 2016, 17 days were organized, involving 31 establishments and 4,900 participants (pupils, teachers and sometimes parents).

Supporting the Action of the Lenval Foundation
The Lenval Foundation for children was registered as a charity in 1893. It has over 20 sites in Alpes-Maritimes, a pediatric hospital, social and medical-social centers and a training center for early childhood.
As such, it benefits from very good local integration and it therefore seemed like a natural choice for Arkopharma to lend its name to some of the charitable action organized for the Lenval Foundation.
For example, organizing charitable concerts enables the Lenval Foundation to collect the funds required to purchase new equipment for the various hospital departments, fund plays for infant care homes and contribute to a lot of other useful action.
Supporting a human cause, more importantly in the area of healthcare, revealed itself to be a clear duty for Arkopharma.
