The money raised is paid to four associations; Adie (Association for the Right to Economic Initiative), PlaNet Finance, Planète Urgence and Vaincre Noma, the latter having been founded in 2013 at the initiative of Group employees.

- Leading the way to better food
The Group’s endowment fund encourages and supports employees committed to socially inclusive initiatives in France and worldwide. Among them: the installation of vegetable gardens in Cambodia, in the Bayon school located within the grounds of the Angkor Temple and open to underprivileged children. The Fund financed their facilities so that pupils have access to healthy and locally produced food. Twelve families have been trained to manage these vegetable gardens independently, allowing them to generate an income through the sale of cultivated vegetables.
