The ArcelorMittal Foundation was created in May 2007. It is a non-profit organisation, focused on formalising and developing ArcelorMittal’s responsibility towards communities.
Within the framework of the Corporate Responsibility strategy defined by the ArcelorMittal Group, the Foundation focuses on the communities around the group. We concentrate efforts to better identify specific priority needs in every place where ArcelorMittal operates. Through the priority areas of activity: Education, Health, Safety and Social Promotion, the Foundation strives to ensure the economic wellbeing of these communities. It favours projects that become self-sustainable after initial support, in order to reach a maximum number of beneficiaries.
Our social strategy is to set up projects to maximize the potential of each community, respecting their specific needs and empowering local resources. We promote entrepreneurship in the communities by helping people to develop their own talents. This is the surest way to enhance quality of life and to make a sustainable contribution to ongoing development.
