Groupe BPCE’s companies mobilize their efforts to bring aid to Ukraine
Groupe BPCE’s companies are taking concrete steps to help provide humanitarian aid to the populations affected by the conflict in Ukraine. A total of nearly €7 million will be channeled through two solidarity schemes.
The Banques Populaires, Caisses d'Epargne, Natixis CIB, Natixis IM, Banque Palatine, and all the subsidiaries of Groupe BPCE and the Natixis foundation will be donating almost €5 million to the French Red Cross.
These donations will enable the Group to contribute to the solidarity actions coordinated by the International Red Cross and Red Crescent Movement in favor of the civilian population and refugees both within Ukraine, in neighboring countries, and in France. At the same time, Groupe BPCE has also launched a fundraising campaign aimed at its 100,000 employees for the benefit of the Red Cross.
In addition, the Caisses d'Epargne and the HLM rent-controlled housing companies belonging to the Habitat en Région group, a major player in the social housing sector in France, have decided to make an exceptional €1.8 million contribution to the Habitat en Région solidarity fund to welcome the victims of the crisis in Ukraine and to provide them with emergency accommodation.
