Faurecia aims to strengthen its commitment to local communities by initiating or contributing to projects and programs that address local needs.
In 2020, Faurecia officially launched the Faurecia Foundation, supporting employee projects in their local communities in the fields of education, mobility and the environment. Through the Foundation, employees are invited to submit their ideas once a year for projects that have a concrete social impact. In 2020, the Foundation selected three employee programs in Mexico, India and Morocco from over 300 initiatives submitted:
Faurecia volunteers will support two girls’ schools located in the Pune area with the provision of basic equipment ranging from books and pens to uniforms and bicycles, while contributing to the renovation of one of the schools' buildings.
Children living in 15 remote villages around Azilal city will get 100 bikes, helmets and necessary equipment to go safely and autonomously to school every day.
This social business initiative supports reforestation in Puebla, Mexico while helping a children’s charity get regular funding through the creation of a greenhouse of oaks on its unused land.
Each year, several solidarity and community-focused initiatives are led by employees worldwide, such as the FUELS program including fund-raising for local vulnerable populations in Brazil, road safety awareness days in Mexico, life saving actions in Poland and recycling and environmental protection in China.
During the pandemic, many sites chose to support their local communities through the donation of masks and other protective equipment.
