DELABIE, water for life
In 2005 DELABIE, conscious of the need for better water management, decided to redistribute a portion of its profits on an annual basis. Through the DELABIE foundation, the company finances projects which provide access to safe drinking water for the poorest and most isolated populations.
Corporate social responsibility has grown through sport or culture. However, the DELABIE foundation has chosen to provide access to water, which over three billion people worldwide still do not have. Without access to drinking water, life is very challenging.
Of the many projects that are submitted to the foundation, DELABIE favours rural micro-projects whose sustainability is clearly identified. The company also finances many boreholes, wells and the installation of sanitation blocks, mostly in Africa.
A lifelong commitment to health and hygiene for all is DELABIE’s fundamental principle.
