Group & values
The Group inherited a tradition of guild orders for employees initiated by Francis Bouygues who created the Minorange guild in 1963. It promotes the values of team spirit, responsibility and respect. As of 2013, the Minorange guild has 1,064 members divided into fifteen orders. They are volunteers who advocate constructive labour relations and act as an alternative to unions.
Social and environmental commitment
Since 2006, Bouygues has participated in the United Nations Global Compact which promotes and ensures compliance with a set of ten principles in areas such as human rights, labour standards, the environment and the fight against corruption. The group sponsors The Shift Project think tank, with several other companies such as EDF, BNP Paribas or Saint-Gobain, which promotes sustainable economic development.
Bouygues focuses its patronage on education, social issues and medical research.
Each subsidiary supports its own foundation:
- The Francis Bouygues Foundation sponsors deserving high school students with a scholarship.
- Terre Plurielle, Bouygues Construction’s foundation, grants financial support to projects selected by employees. These projects concern access to health, education, and the social insertion of people facing major difficulties.
- The Bouygues Immobilier Corporate Foundation created in 2009 aims at raising awareness about the need of sustainable construction and urban planning.
- The Colas Foundation supports contemporary arts through the acquisition of paintings.
- The TF1 Foundation helps young talents from underprivileged neighbourhoods to succeed in the broadcasting sector.
- The Bouygues Telecom Foundation is committed to environmental protection, helping people in social or medical difficulty, and promoting the French language.
