Who we are
A commitment towards local communities
Established in November 2007, the Alstom Foundation supports and funds projects which serve to improve living conditions in, and economic prospects of, communities located near Alstom’s facilities and sites around the world. All projects are conceived, presented and supported by Alstom employees who team up with expert partners and look to the Alstom Foundation to make a positive impact on the local environment. All projects are conducted in strong partnership with local or global NGOs with a proven ability to implement the projects on the ground.
Objectives and roles
The Foundation seeks to:
- share Alstom’s success and expertise
- encourage, recognise and highlight Alstom employees’ citizenship and engagement
- position Alstom with respect to local communities and give back to those impacted by our presence
The projects supported by the Alstom Foundation must meet local needs and be developed in close cooperation with local bodies.
Alstom is a signatory of the United Nations Global Compact and commits to human rights, labour rights, the environment and anti-corruption to ensure its activities benefit economies and societies everywhere. The Alstom Foundation is also bound by this commitment.
