Airbus Corporate Foundation

Social responsibility, coupled with a greater responsibility to protect the environment, has been at the heart of Airbus’ business activities for many years.

The Airbus Corporate Foundation was created to facilitate the company’s worldwide charitable activities by placing them within one organisation that brings together the resources of Airbus’ international employee network with associations and international organizations.

Established in December 2008, the Foundation’s purpose is to support programmes and projects in which Airbus employees are involved, and it focuses its support on three themes: youth development, humanitarian and community support, and the environment.

The Board of Directors has secured the support of international members that bring specific experience and know-how: Kriss Akabusi, Virginie Guyot, Birgitte Stalder-Olsen, Manuel Toharia Cortes and Eveline Metzen.
