Solidarity Day mobilizes 6,000 Group employees

Each year, the Group unites the actions of 42 subsidiaries around a day dedicated to solidarity dubbed Ideal care Day. This year, employees could vote for an international project of their choice.

Three worthy causes were presented to Edenred employees in December 2015:


Help reforest areas in France, Peru, Haiti and Senegal, by allowing local people to plant trees and so protect biodiversity from the consequences of climate change.

The employees had 9 days to give their vote on the Group’s collaborative Intranet.
The ReforestAction project came top by attracting 46% of votes from employees and will be financially supported by the Group.
