Eurocopter Corporate Foundation takes flight
Eurocopter recently held the first board meeting of its new Corporate Foundation, which unites the company’s humanitarian and philanthropic activities worldwide, underscoring the company’s increased commitment to social responsibility. The Eurocopter Corporate Foundation is an independent, apolitical and non-profit legal entity funded by Eurocopter, Eurocopter Deutschland and Eurocopter Group subsidiaries.
The Foundation is dedicated to the following areas of service: emergency humanitarian aid; support for developing countries; assistance for the disadvantaged including the ill, handicapped, and those living in extremely difficult conditions; and youth development through the transfer of aeronautical know-how to underprivileged youth.
“Social responsibility and providing help to those in need is a part of Eurocopter’s DNA. Many of our helicopters perform vital missions every day, and we have been involved for many years in a wide range of humanitarian initiatives,” explained Eurocopter President & CEO Lutz Bertling.
