Organized by the French Senate, the Corporate Citizen Award (Trophée de l’Entreprise Citoyenne) is awarded each year to companies having carried out general interest measures. At the 6th annual awards ceremony, held on November 5, Renault won in the “Large Company” category for its social entrepreneurship program, “Renault Mobiliz”.
One of the leading Renault Mobiliz initiatives is the implementation of a network of socially responsible garages, comprising volunteer dealerships and agents that offer maintenance and repair services at cost price to people whose incomes fall under the poverty threshold.
Accepting the award, Claire Martin , Director of Corporate Social Responsibility for the Group, said: “One and a half years after the launch of our social entrepreneurship program, it is Renault as a whole that is being rewarded for the relevance of the initiative and the sincerity of the approach. Some 200 people have already benefitted from the services of our socially responsible garages. Much still needs to be done across all the company’s business lines to maximize the impact of the program with beneficiaries, too many of whom continue to face mobility problems on a daily basis .”
