As part of FORVIA’s Corporate Social Responsibility, we launched in 2020 the FORVIA Foundation, to support innovative and forward-looking initiatives focused on 3 themes: Education, Mobility and the Environment.
The FORVIA Foundation aims to help build a fairer, more mobile and more environmental-friendly society to ensure that we preserve the planet for future generations. Every year, FORVIA employees are invited to submit projects with a social impact and in need for time or financial resources. The projects can be managed by our employees themselves or in partnership with non-profit organizations.
Over the past two years, the Foundation has also taken action as the world was facing a major health crisis, providing financial donations to support research projects, local social professionals and charities working with the most vulnerable populations.
Oceans, which cover 70% of the Earth's surface, are the planet's main reservoir of biodiversity. According to the latest IPCC report, preserving and restoring them is a key factor in the fight against climate change. Through two partnerships with the Maud Fontenoy Foundation and Plastic Odyssey, two renowned organizations dedicated to protecting marine biodiversity, the FORVIA Foundation will encourage the education of young people in the protection of marine biodiversity, a better understanding of the challenges of plastic pollution in the oceans, and ultimately the development of industrial applications that are more respectful of the environment.
