Carrefour Foundation: a better quality of life for all.
A major company such as the Carrefour Group plays a vital economic and social role in the countries in which it operates.
tyIn 2000, the Carrefour Group set up a Foundation so that it could provide an adapted response to problems arising in the 19 countries where the Carrefour Group* is present, by supporting non-profit associations carrying out concrete actions on the ground. The Foundation is thus able to act legitimately and effectively, using the skills of local teams.
In order to achieve this ambition, the Foundation has developed three missions, specifically linked to the Group’s areas of expertise:
- Food programme: as a producer and retailer, food represents 75% of Carrefour’s sales. Our food donation programme aims to provide the socially and economically vulnerable with access to safe and varied food provisions.
- Professional Integration: as the leading private-sector employer in France, and ranking seventh in the world, offering a wide range of employment opportunities, Carrefour is an impressive vehicle for social mobility. And, to extend its role even further, the Carrefour Foundation hopes that, by supporting microcredit initiatives, rural development programmes and professional reintegration projects, it will help to improve the employment prospects of those suffering from social or economic exclusion.
- Solidarity: as a local stakeholder, with an understanding of the logistics of distribution, Carrefour is able to rally the support of its clients, by appealing for donations, by contributing to humanitarian aid or responding with donations of products adapted to the needs of those left vulnerable after an emergency.
