Several Renault Foundations are active at local level, in Brazil, Argentina and Spain.
Instituto Renault do Brasil
Set up at the end of 2010, this Foundation oversees all Renault’s societal and environmental initiatives in Brazil. Its aim is to reinforce the CSR strategy of the Renault group locally, tailoring it to the needs of the local population. Reflecting the Group’s priorities, the Instituto do Brasil focuses on four areas in its work:
- community development,
- road safety education,
- environmental protection.
These initiatives are located primarily in the cities where Renault is based, Sao José dos Pinhais, Sao Paulo and Jundiaí.
Renault Argentina Foundation
For fifty years, the Renault Argentina Foundation has supported programmes in a range of areas: humanitarian, education, health, road safety and the environment.
The flagship programme of the Renault Argentina Foundation is “Educacion ambiental para todos” (environmental education for all). It aims to teach children the fundamental principles of respect for the environment and the values of good citizenship. This programme won first prize in a competition organized by the Franco-Argentine Chamber of Commerce and Industry to reward the companies investing in human capital, the environment and civil society, beyond their legal obligations.
Renault Spain Foundations
Set up in 1963, the Renault Spain Foundation finances study grants for the children of Group employees in Spain.
The Renault Spain Foundation for Sustainable Mobility is part of the Group’s Corporate Social Responsibility policy. Its brief is to educate and raise awareness among the general public on sustainable mobility and encourage research in this area.
The second action plan will concern road safety and efforts to educate the population on responsible driving.
