Our foundation

Through our foundation, we want to have a positive impact on the areas in which we operate by financing projects around Linkbynet’s geographical sites.

OUR LINKTOGETHER FOUNDATION

Created under the aegis of the Fondation de France in 2016, our foundation aims to :

  • Reduce the carbon footprint of human activities by funding ecological projects
  • Promote educational digital projects and foster equal opportunities.

Finance projects are selected in 3 stages:  

  • Internal call for projects,
  • Instruction of projects by employees,
  • Linktogether selection committee. 

The foundation is financed by: 

  • The eco-participation of customers,
  • The rounding up of French employees’ salaries,
  • Linkbynet which matches 100% of these contributions and completes them with its own eco-participation

The projects supported 

Since the launch of the LINKTOGETHER foundation in 2016, we have already supported various projects around the world. 

We support projects in the countries where LINKBYNET is located, having at heart to be able to participate concretely in the projects and to involve the employees.
