Schréder - Sustainability Report 2022


3. Schréder Together Fund As part of our ambition to align our actions with the United Nations’ SDG 11, we regularly help towns and cities to implement lighting solutions that improve safety for vulnerable users at crossings and protect flora and fauna. Over the years, we have continually donated street lights to improve the quality of life in economically disadvantaged areas or to help disaster-stricken zones. In 2021, we took a decision together with the Schréder family, to take a more structured approach to our philanthropic purpose by setting up a global fund in cooperation with the King Baudouin Foundation: the Schréder Together Fund . Our goal is to work with non-profit organisations to support the communities in which we live and operate by:

protecting vulnerable users on the road and in the city

promoting entrepreneurship among young citizens in less privileged areas

helping to train engineering and technology students and professionals in disadvantaged communities

improving lighting or safety in public or private spaces, particularly disadvantaged areas

preserving the environment and acting against climate change

Schréder employees are closely involved in the operation of the fund and can make suggestions to help us decide which projects to support.
