A Foundation, 3 Missions

With a budget of nearly 3 million euros over five years, the Air Liquide Foundation's ambition is to accompany projects in France and abroad.

Since its creation, the Air Liquide Foundation has been supporting 264 projects in about 50 countries:

  • 34 scientific research programs in the environmental and medical fields
  • 230 micro-initiatives in education and training, social sector, access to healthcare, to energy and water, micro-entrepreneurship, disability…
More than 300 Group employees involved in the projects supported by the Foundation

The Foundation carries out its action by notably relying on Air Liquide employees who sponsor micro-initiatives. In this way, the Foundation provides the opportunity to those who wish to get involved in solidarity actions to express their social and human commitment by participating in the evaluation and follow-up of projects.

Our employees are also invited to recommend projects.
