Accor Heartist Solidarity was created in 2008. Over the years, its form has evolved, its impacts have multiplied, but one thing has remained unchanged: its mission, dedicated to the fight against the economic and social exclusion of the most vulnerable, through training and professional integration.
Discover its 13 years of actions in a few key dates:
10 YEARS OF COMMITMENT
Creation of the Accor corporate foundation to promote training and employability of the most disadvantaged people. A dedicated Board of Directors and Selection Committee were formed to choose projects proposed by employees and evaluated by the permanent team.
As part of Solidarity Week, the first Christmas Market of handicrafts made by the beneficiaries of charitable organizations was set up at the parisian head office of AccorHotels. The Solidarity Week takes place every year in December and brings together, around the world, employees who are mobilizing for a local organization.

The Foundation changed its status to become the Solidarity AccorHotels endowment fund. This evolution made it possible to raise funds from a larger number of stakeholders and thereby further mobilize employees and guests to support more projects and beneficiaries.
End of 2013
Le Club AccorHotels is committed to the fund: guests with loyalty cards can now turn their points into donations (2,000 reward points = €40).
