Citizen Commitment

At Societe Generale, we put our Citizen Commitment into practice through the initiatives of the Societe Generale Corporate Foundation for Solidarity and the involvement of both our retired and current employees. We strive to demonstrate each commitment through practical actions undertaken in partnership with charitable organisations working at local, national and international levels.

Highlight on our partnership with the charity Emmaüs Défi

The Emmaüs Défi association, founded in 2007 and located in Paris, uses economic activity, with adapted contracts and intensive support, to fight poverty and marginalisation among those excluded from the job market. Emmaüs Défi has been one of the Societe Generale Corporate Foundation's major partners since 2011.

The grand final, played at the National Rugby Centre in Marcoussis on 14 June 2014, brought together 2,000 employees from 30 countries.

Citizen Commitment

Our Group encourages and promotes citizen commitment from all its employees. To share the solidarity-based initiatives undertaken through our Foundation, a dedicated website has been created. It describes all the opportunities for our employees to make personal commitments, in France or abroad.


The Societe Generale Corporate Foundation for Solidarity

Since 2006, the Foundation has supported professional integration by helping young people into employment and by tackling illiteracy. It supported 102 projects by non-profit organisations in 2014, bringing the total number of projects backed since its creation to 756. In 2015, it is widening its scope to include education and inclusion. For two years, the Foundation is choosing to extend its fields of intervention to support for charitable projects using sport or cultural activities to promote the education and/or inclusion of people facing difficulties.
