Corporate Social Responsibility
Our approach to sustainability at Foyer Group
Foyer Global Health fully commits to the global Corporate Social Responsibility governance of the Foyer Group and engages actively in the social actions initiated.
Foyer wants to ensure a better future
Foyer is always looking for ways to improve. The company met the Luxembourg Sustainable Development and Corporate Social Responsibility Institute (INDR) criteria, and was therefore able to renew its “Socially Responsible Company” accreditation on 4 June 2021.
Of the 100 companies that have received the accreditation so far, Foyer was the only insurer to have obtained and renewed its certification. This award is a testament to the group’s commitment to CSR.
And partnerships with governmental and non-governmental organisations…
In January 2009, the Foyer Group concluded a partnership agreement with the non-profit organisation MyClimateLux.
MyClimateLux activities are aimed in particular at making companies and the public at large, aware of climate change, the efficient use of energy and renewable energy sources, together with enabling voluntary compensation of CO2 emissions by investing in high-quality climate protection projects.
Since 2015, Foyer Group is also a partner of Microlux, leader in Luxembourg in microfinance activities.
In January 2020, during its CSR Fair, Foyer Group launched a new award, the Foyer Microfinance Award, for microfinance projects in Luxembourg.
For the second time in October 2021, Foyer Group supported micro-entrepreneurs through My Microbusiness Awards, with the presence of Pierre Gramegna, the Minister of Finance.
Foyer Group also collaborated with Payroll Giving Luxembourg, Infogreen, AEIN…

Our actions to build a better place
Charity project in Nepal: building a school for children
With the NGO AEIN, Foyer supports the education of children with the rebuilding of a primary school. This school will be able to accommodate around 120 students. Foyer collects donations through Payroll giving and various auctions, which amount so far to €30,000. This amount will be donated to the AEIN association. We give a warm thank you to all staff that were involved in this cause.
International Women’s Day 2022
Foyer Global Health joined Foyer to celebrate International Women’s Day on 8 March 2022 to speak up for a more diverse, equitable and inclusive world. A series of short videos and interviews were created to raise awareness around gender equality in the workplace.
Collecting goods for Ukraine
In collaboration with several Luxembourgish companies, Foyer has organised several collections of goods for the Ukrainian population. The goods were sent to the associations LUkraine and Echanges Lorraine Ukraine, to be then shipped to Ukraine, or distributed at collection centres.
Mets tes baskets! (Put your sneakers on!)
On 16 June 2022, Foyer’s collaborators put their sneakers on to clean the Leudelange area in support of the ELA Association to fight against leukodystrophy. About 13 bags of 100 litres were collected in 45 min by all the staff present that day.
