A commitment to a better world
We believe that we have a responsibility that stretches beyond business.

Today, the Foundation concentrates its efforts on two main areas: promoting research into sustainable technologies and supporting education of children in need.

Most of the Foundation’s work focuses on education of children in need. Currently, it actively supports more than 20 educational projects around the world, helping more than 40,000 underprivileged children get a better education, so they can build a better future for themselves, their families and society.
