Since 2018, Wendel has extended its scope of action to include solidarity. In this approach, the Group’s employees were asked to present the associations in which they are personally involved. The Philanthropy Committee then selected the organizations most in line with Wendel’s values. In this way, associations working in France and the United States, the Group’s investment territories, received Wendel’s support.
These include the Helen Keller Europe association, which works to combat blindness and malnutrition. Since 2018, Wendel has been supporting the Plan Vue program, whose mission is to raise awareness, identify and treat vision disorders in schools. The Group is also mobilized alongside the Protection Civile Paris Seine. This partnership has resulted in the ﬁnancing of the renovation of a first aid vehicle for the branch in the 11th arrondissement of Paris. With the new vehicle in service, the association’s volunteer first-aid workers will be able to increase the number of their interventions and respond to more requests.
