m3 GROUPE’s different sectors of activity are at the heart of major human challenges related to sustainable development. It is our responsibility to act in order to move towards an ethical mode of operation from both an environmental and a societal point of view.
We are aware that each of our activities has an impact on the environment and on society, and we are convinced of the importance of moving towards sustainable practices. m3 GROUPE therefore aims to put the principles of responsibility and solidarity at the heart of its activities.
In order to contribute to the local community of the canton, m3 GROUPE has been helping numerous associations active in the social field for several years. In January 2021, it was decided that each group entity would in time establish a three-year partnership with the aim of boosting support for these players, who are essential to the strengthening of Geneva’s socio-economic fabric.
The majority of these partnerships go well beyond corporate sponsorship and are based on the following principles:
Each group entity selects an association or foundation. From management to employees, every person is involved in this selection.
The selected association or foundation ideally has a link with the entity’s sector of activity. The aim of this positioning is to maximise exchanges and to enable the stakeholder concerned to benefit from the strengths and skills of m3 GROUPE.
Three areas of action are possible with regard to these partnerships: social, environmental, and applied research (support for a university or a college, in particular).

The partnership with John Taylor will last for three years and in 2021 will include financial support for the “Permanent Social Welcome” programme, which offers emergency assistance to people in precarious situations and thus enables thousands of people to benefit from psychological support, food, material and/or financial aid.
