THE DECATHLON FOUNDATION: SHARING THE VALUES OF SPORT TO HELP PEOPLE OVERCOME CHALLENGES IN THEIR LIVES
Since 2005, the Decathlon Foundation has provided support to teammates who wish to take part in initiatives by non-profit organisations with the aim of forging an alliance between sport and employability.
Believing that sport is an excellent driver for access to employment, the Foundation helps build lasting connections between teammates, the people they help and organisations that are making a difference in their communities. By making sport accessible to people in difficulty and by helping teammates create long-term ties with their neighbours, the Decathlon Foundation is putting our company’s values and purpose into practice.
Serving all our Decathlon teammates, the Foundation supports any country that is interested in developing their own local Foundation team. Today, four countries have autonomous teams. This aligns with our commitment to develop projects as closely as possible to local concerns.
In addition to these community-focused activities, the Foundation also works to assess our environmental and social footprint, especially in India, so we can calculate the overall regional impact of Decathlon’s activities.
