Corporate Social Responsibility
Bâloise Luxembourg assumes its role as a corporate citizen by supporting various associations in the social, cultural and sports fields. We are proud of this long and strong tradition and therefore constantly looking to expand and strengthen our social commitment.
Corporate Social Responsibility is indeed important to us!
Instead of a simple sponsorship, we would like to further intensify patronage and have already started various partnerships where we actively assist associations by other means than only monetary donations. These aids are often more important than a financial support and help to discharge the organisations.
For about ten years now, Bâloise has been supporting the Luxembourg Cancer Foundation which informs about how to prevent and combat cancer and sustains any initiatives, scientific research or information campaigns in the context of the fight against cancer.
By means of actions and various services, the Foundation not only tries to reduce the number of victims but also tries to help people suffering from cancer to improve their quality of life.
Right from the beginning, we have been actively supporting the "Relais pour la vie" (relay for life) the Cancer Foundation's flagship event, thus allowing us to show our solidarity towards people having cancer.
The Luxembourg Athletic Federation (F.L.A.)
The development and the sponsoring of the Luxembourg Athletic Federation is yet another Bâloise commitment. It seems to be a perfect means of promoting sports, in particular among the youngsters. Since 1928 the F.L.A. has been organising and developing athletics in the Grand-Duchy of Luxembourg. It coordinates the efforts of the athletes and the associated clubs and includes the promotion of related sportive activities.
In 2015 we initiated a collaboration with "natur&ëmwelt" (nature and environment), the main organization for the protection of nature and environment in Luxembourg. This patronage is not limited to a pure financial aid but offers interested people the opportunity to hit the ground by actively participating in concrete field actions.
Every year, since 2012, Bâloise organises its proper Christmas market in the Atrium Business Centre at Bourmicht/Bertrange. The collaborators prepare lunch for the public and sell self-made cookies, Christmas decorations, phantasy jewels, paintings, etc. at the market stalls. The funds raised during this convivial event are entirely paid to charities.
So far, the beneficiaries have been the following Luxembourg associations:
- 2015 : "Schrëtt fir Schrëtt a.s.b.l.", a conductive education association
- 2014 : "Autisme Luxembourg a.s.b.l.", welfare to persons with autism
- 2013 : "Le rêve du petit prince a.s.b.l.", supporting children suffering of serious diseases
- 2012 : "Blannenheem", Berschbach, a home for visually impaired and blind people
