Pousses d’Avenir – Phase 2

France

Social and business context 

The Chablais region in France faces social inclusion problems as some parts of the region are very remote. The problem is exacerbated because unemployed people also have trouble accessing the services that could help them.
Evian’s watershed is located in Chablais and the Evian (SAEME) plant has a history of commitment to various economic and social development initiatives in the region.

Solution
With the support of the Danone Ecosystem Fund, Evian (SAEME), Le Réseau Cocagne and local authorities co-created the “Pousse d’Avenir” project comprising an organic vegetable garden and training center offering 12- to 18-month rehabilitation contracts for long-term unemployed people.

Social and business impacts
The project offers work training to people facing social and professional difficulties such as  unemployment, drug addiction, or depression, to support them in re-entering the labour market.
Evian (SAEME) is strengthening its relationships with local authorities and enhancing its general reputation while also reinforcing the commitment of its employees. 
This project contributes to combating unemployment in the Chablais region and promotes organic agriculture.
