Social commitment

Sequana’s social commitment has been focused on cultural and outreach initiatives for several years now.

Sponsorships

The Group provides the Louvre museum with its expertise and premium quality papers since 2005, thus enabling access to art and its disseminetion to as many people as possible. It also partners with the FIAC international contemporary art fair since 2009.

Communities

RéciproCité, Sequana’s community project, gives headquarters’ employees the opportunity to support community initiatives in partnership with local associations in five areas:

  • Academic support,
  • Help with developing employability
  • Combating loneliness,
  • Providing associations with expertise
  • Organising cultural and sports outings with young people from underprivileged backgrounds.

In 2015, more than 20 employees were involved in activities offered by ReciproCité, representing a total of more than 250 hours donated to outreach projects.

With the goal of embedding their actions into the local economic, social and cultural fabric, Antalis and Arjowiggins lead various outreach initiatives focused on culture, education and health in their countries of operation.

Examples of actions led in 2015
