Air Liquide Foundation
Created in 2008, the Air Liquide Foundation shows the Group’s commitment to being a responsible company, engaged in long-term action. The Foundation has been supporting research programs on the environment and healthcare, and has been contributing to local development by encouraging micro-initiatives in the regions in the world where the Group is present.
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 194 projects in 42 countries:
- 27 scientific research programs in the environmental and medical fields
- 167 micro-initiatives in education and training, social sector, access to healthcare, to energy and water, micro-entrepreneurship, disability…
More than 200 Group employees involved in the projects supported by the Group
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.
