Could the Groupe Renault Corporate Foundation help you?


Reducing the carbon footprint of everyday travel". This is the theme of the Groupe Renault Corporate Foundation's new call for projects. Read on to find out everything you need to know to take part.

The Groupe Renault Foundation has a long history of supporting programmes of excellence in universities. The foundation has recently broadened its scope to include philanthropic activities in favour of inclusion and sustainable transport.

This year, the new external call for projects is: "Reducing the carbon footprint of everyday travel".

Are you an association that works to protect the environment in relation to transport in small and medium-sized cities or in peri-urban and rural areas?  You have until midnight on 19 April to submit your application and dream of following in the footsteps of Led By Her, the 2018 winner.

If you are selected, you will be awarded a grant of up to €50,000 per year for a period of three years.

What are the rules for participating?

Your project must focus on reducing the impact of transport in the region (exhaust emissions, noise pollution, adaptation to the consequences of global warming, eco-driving, etc.) or propose alternative solutions to single-passenger car journeys.

This sustainable transport activity must take place in France and/or in a country where Renault has a strong presence.

If you meet these criteria, you can submit your application by filling in the form available online by clicking here

What is the selection process?

First, the Groupe Renault Corporate Foundation team will check that the applications meet all the required criteria.

The selected candidates will be invited to Boulogne-Billancourt on 14 or 16 May to meet the members of the Foundation and present their projects to them (Skype possible from abroad).

Five finalists will be chosen and will present their initiatives (a 20-minute pitch) on 22 May to the sponsorship committee's panel, who will choose the winner.

Good luck everyone and see you on the 23 May to find out the winner.
