CULTURE AND LOCAL ENGAGEMENT
Danone people actively supporting local communities.
The revolutionary vision outlined by Antoine Riboud in his 1972 Marseille speech, what we at Danone call, “the dual economic and social project”, became a milestone in Danone company culture. This is what makes Danone a unique company with “something special inside”. Since then, our employees have shared the strong values of Humanism, Openness, Proximity, Enthusiasm and Self awareness (what we call HOPES), It’s these values which are translated into projects that are rooted in local communities, thanks to the commitment of our teams everywhere.
LA DANONERS WORLD CUP : more than just football competition
Every two year since 1998, the Danoners’ World Cup brings together Danoners for an international football competition that embodies our open and collaborative corporate culture, as well as our commitment to promoting healthy lifestyles for our employees. More than a football competition, it is the story of a joyful encounter.
Danoners expressed a wish to have greater opportunities to volunteer their time, expertise and engagement in order to help others. As a result, the Danone Volunteering Month was created and is an optional program that will take place for the first time in June 2016 in Danone local subsidiaries all over the world. All Danoners will be invited to start or develop local community initiatives where they live and work. These actions will be connected to their mission and to the ambitions of Danone 2020.
