How we operate

The Alstom Foundation is headed by a Board of Directors, which sets the strategic targets of the Foundation and selects the projects to be funded.

A voluntary engagement

The Members of the Board of Directors work on a voluntary basis and do not receive any compensation for their involvement. The external members are each recognised experts in one or more fields relevant to the Alstom Foundation. The Executive Committee’s role is to make sure that projects are properly executed and in compliance with the contract terms. The Executive Committee also decides on natural disaster emergency aid donations. The Alstom Foundation has appointed a statutory auditor and an alternative auditor to ensure the probity of its financial statements and report to the Board of Directors.
