BPCE - 2020 Universal Registration Document


Since 2019, Natixis has been offering its employees a simple and participative generosity scheme: salary rounding. With it, they can support one of the five selected associations. The monthly microdonation is deducted directly from the payslip, and Natixis doubles the amount of donations. One year after its launch, more than €64,000 had been paid to the five beneficiary associations. During the Covid-19 health crisis, a large number of Natixis employees mobilized around the world to combat this pandemic. The specific fundraising operation organized in France raised nearly €100,000 to support caregivers, research and the most disadvantaged people. In 2020 the Natixis Foundation – a corporate foundation – was created. Its aim is to facilitate the commitment of all Natixis employees to a just transition. Natixis Foundation will support projects and public-interest initiatives that address both environmental protection and solidarity, with the goal of lasting impact.

Natixis Foundation was created on December 1, 2020, and the first proposals for international projects were submitted to employees for a vote. Two projects were selected and will be supported by the foundation: a water access project presented in partnershipwith the NGO • Action Against Hunger, which aims to build and/or rehabilitate wells in rural communities in Liberia; a project called Santé & Energie solaire (Health & Solar • Energy ), presented in partnership with the NGO Électriciens Sans Frontières (Electricians Without Borders), which aims to improve care conditions in rural African villages through solar energy equipment. The implementation of these projects will begin in the first quarter of 2021
