Renault Mobiliz, a comprehensive program set up to deliver mobility for all
Renault Mobiliz is the first social entrepreneurship program set up by a vehicle manufacturer. Its aim is to contribute to the integration of people in difficulty by providing easier access to mobility. The program was developed in cooperation with partners from associations, the academic world and public-sector players. One of its main components is an investment company, Renault Mobiliz Invest s.a.s, which provides capital or debt financing and supports innovative entrepreneurs developing mobility solutions with a strong social impact. Renault Mobiliz Invest s.a.s. is endowed by Renault with an investment budget of €5 million. Further, Renault employees who wish to give greater meaning to the use of their savings can allocate part of their employee savings plan to the social entrepreneurship projects supported via the socially responsible company investment fund, Renault Mobiliz. Six companies are currently receiving support.
