According to a report by the World Health Organization, 15% of the world population lives with a disability. And the figure could well rise in the coming years. The employment of people with disabilities is vital to inclusion. What are companies doing in this respect? To find out, we talked to Oliver Faust, Director of Corporate Social Responsibility and the Groupe Renault Foundation.
Renault encourages diversity in order to promote equal opportunities and prevent all forms of discrimination. Mobility and access to the labour market are major obstacles to the social integration of disabled people. Renault is implementing solutions in its capacity as a vehicle manufacturer, by adapting its vehicles, and also in its capacity as an employer and economic player, through its social policies.
