Crédit Agricole Assurances has developed several corporate sponsoring programmes (providing financial, human or material support at no direct charge) on social and environmental issues. These actions are wholly consistent with our policy of operating as an actively responsible company.
Call for Caregivers’ Projects
Since 2010, Crédit Agricole Assurances has been committed to working alongside public-interest organisations involved in caregiver-support projects. We finance local non-profit projects on issues that vary from year to year. The participation of Crédit Agricole’s Regional Banks enables us to cover the entire country.
Since its launch, Crédit Agricole Assurances has financed more than 170 projects for family caregivers and distributed more than €2.5 million. The applications are selected by a jury of experts from civil society and the Crédit Agricole Group.
More than 170 projects have been supported throughout France
« Plantons pour l'avenir » - Let’s Plant for the Future!
Since 2019, Crédit Agricole Assurances has been involved in environmental sponsoring through the “Let’s Plant for the Future” (“Plantons pour l'avenir”) endowment fund, dedicated to promoting reforestation.
To offset the CO2 emissions linked to the company’s operations, Crédit Agricole Assurances has pledged to plant 200,000 trees in France each year. This is equivalent to planting 200 hectares of forest and offsetting 29,000 tonnes of CO2.
Since 2011, the “Helping Hand” (“Courte Echelle”) programme has been designed to provide financial support for the implementation of projects promoted by public-interest organisations in which Crédit Agricole Assurances employees are actively involved. The fields of intervention include solidarity, the environment, health, research, education and culture in France or abroad.
Each year, our employees are given the opportunity to apply for the programme. A panel of judges is then convened to vote for the projects to be subsidised. Since 2014, an additional subsidy has been awarded in the form of the "Employees’ Choice” prize.
