    Fuel poverty

    An indisputable right to energy

    « Fuel poverty is a major concern for mature countries. What is it for us? It is when a person can’t heat his or her home at an acceptable cost regardless of cause. We intervene through programs that encompass both social and innovative solutions and the creation of tailored solutions, by accompanying households facing fuel poverty. The Foundation’s action is closely linked to the impact investment fund SEEA that invests in innovative social businesses. »
