From 2017, as part of its ESG strategy, Abenex selected several charities which it has supported over the long term.
In order to formalize further our donations and charitable giving approach, Abenex created the Abenex Foundation, under the umbrella of Fondation de France. The aim of the Foundation is to support associations in the fields of training and education, as well as retraining and professional integration.
In 2023, we supported 6 associations and donated around €100,000.
The associations were selected for the alignment of their mission with Abenex values, their outstanding work in supporting local communities, and their ability to measure and report on the social impact of their actions.
