Commitments

Creation of the Foundation

 

Created in June 2020 and sheltered by the Fondation de France, the Setec Foundation, is dedicated to funding initiatives that directly contribute to the environmental transformation in the fight against climate change, biodiversity restoration, and marine environment conservation.

 

Aware of the significant social and societal problems associated with environmental change, the foundation considers fight against poverty (precariousness, energy sovereignty, food, transparency, access to education and treatment, …) to be an important corollary of its action.

 

The Foundation supports cultural activities that raise social questions about these themes. And the Foundation is particularly responsive to projects with social vocations such as integration, training, and education.

 

Financial support for projects of general interest

 

The Setec Foundation is sheltered by the Fondation de France. In this context, it has committed to an initial endowment of 200,000 euros over 5 years (2020-2024).

 

This sum can be supplemented by contribution from other partners, development of co-financing and individual contribution.

 

The Setec Foundation has awarded 76,000 euros to the winners of the 2020 call for projects and 112,000 euros to the 2021 call for projects winners thanks to the additional contributions of the Setec Group’s subsidiaries to its endowment.

 


Missions

An annual focus

To reinforce the impact of its action, the setec Foundation chooses to work on one theme per year among the five areas of activity in which is committed between 2020 and 2024 (see “commitments”), and to fund one to four initiatives annually.

 

In 2021, the setec Foundation launched the second call for projects on sustainable construction in France and in Africa. Click here to discover the winning projects.

Local actions with public interest structures

We fund structures that are of public interest and non-profit (associations, NGOs, cooperatives, social enterprises, etc…) and support projects led by student organizations that are of general interest.

 

In addition to the funding offered by the Setec Foundation, projects can benefit from the involvement of the employees of the Setec group through the skills sponsorship of its subsidiaries. To this end, we encourage projects that are located close to the subsidiaries’ sites.

 

Multiple measurable impacts

Along with the financial leverage on the projects it funds, the setec Foundation also seeks to assess the social, societal, and environmental impacts of its actions.


Organization
