GROUPE GéOTEC COMMITMENT
The purpose of the Géotec Foundation is to support the actions of associations recognised as being of public utility by financing projects whose main objectives are to help people in difficulty with a view to better integration into society, to help underprivileged populations in West Africa and to combat global warming.
Created in 2019 under the umbrella of the Fondation de France, the Géotec Foundation is an initiative by Géotec, which is convinced that the company must play a role that goes beyond its usual activities (geotechnical surveys and environmental studies).
The company, established in several regions of France and in several countries including West Africa, wants to get involved in order to help meet the challenges posed by today's world.
Its executive committee, made up of company representatives and qualified figures from the philanthropic sector, selects and supports several projects each year. The committee also monitors the social impact of each mission.
In France, the Géotec Foundation has chosen to focus on the fight against all forms of exclusion from society (health, disability, lack of training or exclusion/distance from employment) and promotes local solidarity and professional integration.
In West Africa, the Geotec Foundation supports projects providing access to literacy, developing access to water, electricity and sanitation. Often implemented at the local level, these initiatives make it possible to act at the heart of the development challenges in these territories.
In order to play a part in the development of the world of tomorrow that takes into account issues associated with global warming, the Geotec Foundation is committed to supporting projects with this objective.
