Our social and solidarity commitment

POMA Foundation

a connexion we share
Fondation POMA

With a view to structuring its social initiatives and creating connections between people in its areas of operation, the POMA Group created the POMA Corporate Foundation, an independent, non-profit legal entity, at the end of 2019.

 

In a context of profound changes (environmental and societal challenges, growth of the Group), the Foundation finds its purpose by epitomising the Group’s values of Solidarity and Commitment. It also embodies the wish of the employees from its various entities to take part in a unifying, meaningful project, to act together for the common good.

Our mission and our actions

The mission of the Foundation is to: Encourage and develop mobility, a field in which the Group has substantial expertise and experience, in the fields of sport, disability, solidarity and the environment.

The Foundation supports non-profit organisations and project leaders through financial sponsorship, but above all through skills sponsorship, and the involvement of its teams in the field, by organising a Day of Solidarity Action open to all employees.

The Women and Men

of the POMA Foundation

“For many years, our employees in France and in our international entities have carried out pragmatic social initiatives in favour of our environment and with our Partners.

We wanted to give this a boost in the POMA Group by setting up “our FOUNDATION” based on sharing and the commitment of many of us, a unifying project which is expressed in particular through skills sponsorship.

This project is fully in line with our Corporate Social Responsibility approach and meets our objectives of civic and community engagement and local development.

Since December 2019, we have therefore been operational and our first initiatives have been successful and widely appreciated. Long live the POMA Foundation and to all the participants”

The Administrators

The Foundation is placed under the control of a board of directors comprising twelve members: four Group employees, four managers and four “external experts” who guide its strategy and approve the budgets.

By bringing an outside perspective and offering their sound advice in their respective areas of expertise, in connection with the various missions of the Foundation, our four specialists, external to the company, participate in the orientation of strategic choices, alongside of the internal team.
