Our commitments: working hand in hand with employees and NGOs

The Alstom Foundation supports projects that have been conceived, presented and supported by Alstom employees who team up with international and local partners to make a positive impact on their local community.

“The Alstom Foundation has been created to improve the living standards in the communities close to where Alstom has a presence around the world. It supports projects that meet the needs identified by Alstom’s employees. All these projects are focused on raising living standards within local communities and all of them have a sustainability dimension.”
