Partnership with SNL
The Eiffage Foundation’s board of directors has decided to initiate a new action in 2010, involving a special partnership with the SNL (Solidarités Nouvelles pour le Logement – new solidarity for housing) association, which is based in Yvelines, near Paris. More than 1,000 people work for the association on a voluntary basis, mainly in the Paris region. Their mission involves creating – or acquiring and refurbishing – housing units for individuals or families in difficulty, who will pay a nominal rent.
Through its actions, SNL aims to put environmentally-efficient housing within everyone’s reach. It also makes economic solidarity a concrete reality by recruiting people with few or no qualifications, who are suffering from social exclusion, thereby creating employment at local level. The association focuses primarily on social housing and its actions are fully in line with the principles of sustainable development.
