The goal of the Carmeuse Foundation is to create partnerships to offer underprivileged children possibilities of education, training or assistance in order to improve their chances of success in life. We believe that it is essential to invest in the life of children today in order to build the next generation. We make this a reality with financial contributions and the enthusiastic support of Carmeuse employee volunteers.
Our Foundation concentrates on projects close to our plants or our offices because it allows us to create stronger links and channels of communication between our employees, the associations in the field and the communities in which we operate.
Since its creation in 2010, the Carmeuse Foundation has supported many projects in multiple regions (50 in the USA and Canada, 20 in Europe, including 8 in Belgium, and 1 in the Middle East). The Carmeuse Foundation also promotes local solidarity. For this, Carmeuse employees regularly organize days which they devote to underprivileged children: gardening, construction, painting, works for the associations and the partners.
They are initiatives that our company wishes to encourage and develop in order to support important projects for the community and in which employees can get involved.
The purpose of Carmeuse Foundation:
- Ensure a long-lasting and trusting partnership with sponsored organizations
- Reinforce the human aspect of our company internally and externally
- Develop a sense of pride among employees
- Enhance our company values within our neighbouring communities
- Promote communication to create stronger bonds between our company and the community
