For the last five years EOLE-RES has been supporting the national charity "AFM TELETHON" (French association for muscular dystrophy and genetic disorders). We organise each year visits and events on our sites (presentations to disabled children, as well as to staff children, treasure hunts, giant turbines...) The EOLE-RES employees manifest their solidarity by selling products in collaboration with the AFM for the profit of the TELETHON foundation, in their childrens schools or to friends and family.
In 2011, for the 25th edition of the Telethon, on Tuesday, November 29th 2011, EOLE-RES organized the "FlashMob of Renewable Energies" on the famous St. Bénézet Bridge with the support of RMG, the managing association of the Saint-Bénézet bridge. EOLE-RES donated to the AFM Charity 70€ for each person who took part in the choreography. 80 people participated so 5600 € went to the Telethon ! We have put together a video of the event which was broadcasted on France Télévision during the 48 hour Téléthon marathon and was also posted on the web.

EOLE-RES renewed, for the third year, the indoor football tournament, which took place in Avignon on December 3rd, 2011. Twelve local companies participated, each of them having donated 100€ or more to the AFM Charity. We have also renewed our participation to the Transporthon, a sporting event organized by local transport companies from the Vaucluse region, for the Telethon.
In 2010 EOLE-RES sent its seasons' greetings by email, instead of printing them. The money saved by this action was donated to the Good Planet Foundation (www.goodplanet.org), foundation dedicated to the promotion of environment education, that aims to place ecology at the heart of every individual conscience.
EOLE-RES has been supporting the ElémenTerre Association (www.elementerre.org) for 4 years now. This association aims to raise children's' awareness as far as ecology and environment are concerned, by organising educational interventions, animated by professionals in colleges throughout France. The purpose of this operation is to develop a reflexion around citizenship and ecology, as well as to develop their curiosity and make them change their habits and those of their parents !
|The 4L Trophy|
The 4L Trophy is a popular European sporting event, with a humanitarian purpose, which EOLE-RES has been sponsoring over the past five years. It gathers hundreds of students and 4L's (Renault 4) every year who are ready to travel 6000 kilometers throughout France, Spain and Morocco, to the dunes of Merzouga, where dozens of tonnes of school supplies will be distributed amongst Moroccan children.
In 2012, for two consecutive years, we chose to sponsor the team 4 Ailes from the INSEEC in Paris. We maintain a good relationship with this school because a group of students studying a Master in Audit and Management control have asked us to perform an audit on one of our photovoltaic farm projects, which we are currently developing in the South-Western region, a mission which consists of the evaluation of the local residents and elected representatives' expectations regarding the project.
also sponsored Elisa Houdry, world champion in
paragliding, with more than 14 years of experience and holder of 3
titles: France, European and world champion. This ecological sport
that uses wind as a means of propulsion corresponds entirely to our
choices and to our activities.
sponsored the Athletics Club of Villeneuve les
Avignon and invites its employees to participate at a 10
km (running) course. In 2010 EOLE-RES renewed its partnership with
the athletics club of Villeneuve les Avignon for another three
years, which shows its implication and its commitment to reinforce
EOLE-RES also sponsored the football teams of Roussas and Marsanne in the Drome County, and of Murat sur Vébre dans le Tarn, as well as the Chateauneuf de Pape - Orange Rugby Club.
For the last two years EOLE-RES has been sponsoring the Ruffey Les Echirey Bike Club in Cote d'Or during the ATB championship in Bourgogne, and the Association « Cyclos Cardiaques » (about 30 cyclists that have in common the fact that they all had suffered heart surgery).
Each year the Jeune Canoë Kayak Club of Avignon organizes a special day dedicated to introducing kayaking and canoeing to the public. This club also encourages local firms to support this initiative and participate at a challenge entitled "Entreprise". EOLE-RES participates every year since 2007.
