Safran is an international high-tech equipment manufacturer that is a market leader in the fields of aerospace, defense and security. Our technologies help to underpin safety and security in daily life and to satisfy the aspirations of mankind today.
The Safran patronage commitments reflect this outlook and contribute to the Group’s Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) strategy.
Whether in terms of social or professional integration programs, helping people who are disadvantaged by their handicap or disability, or else supporting exceptional young musicians, the 250 or so actions that we have run since 2005 are intended to respond to two key challenges: social cohesion and equality of opportunity for all.
The lasting benefits of what the beneficiaries may expect to enjoy are a fundamental criterion for every choice we make. We also encourage cross-fertilization between our social and cultural commitments, as testified, for example, by our major solidarity partnerships with the Orchestre de l’Alliance and the French Ministry for Education.
As far as all our initiatives are concerned, the guiding principle is "rigor". This is as true for our two corporate foundations as it is for the sustained construction of our direct patronage policy. Rigor is essential in ensuring the respect of our partners and the trust of the Group’s employees. All are now of the conviction that our patronage initiatives, as different as they may be from our industrial activities, nonetheless form the basis of a more promising future.
