Synergie Solaire: The CSR tool of the renewable energy sector
Synergie Solaire centralizes not only funds, but also the skills of companies in the sector, to financially and technically support selected NGOs, carriers of humanitarian energy access projects all over the world. A strong ambition for the future: To contribute to a better world for people and the planet.
Synergie Solaire considers Sharing and Exchange to be fundamental values which enable it to position itself as a bridge between the world of NGOs and that of companies.
Access to energy is a major challenge for improving the living conditions and economic development of developing countries, an essential factor for their empowerment. Renewable energies are a sustainable and effective solution for these countries, which often have a high solar potential.
Through its action, Synergie Solaire is part of the 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) 2015-2030 of the United Nations Organization (UN), which follow the 8 Millennium Development Goals that expired in 2015.

A structured foundation
Synergie Solaire is composed of two entities for the control and monitoring of projects:
- A Board of Directors: meet once a year to approve the annual accounts and strategic orientations of the endowment fund. This Board of Directors is open to active members of Synergie Solaire.
- A Committee of Experts: which consists of experts in the renewable energy sector (engineers, developers), it examines needs and advises NGOs on the technical implementation of electrification projects.
A responsible foundation
Each year, an auditor checks the financial statements of Synergie Solaire. These accounts are available in the annual activity report that we send to our partner companies and NGOs, and which are published on the “Journal Officiel” website.
Regarding the allocation of donations, it should be noted that 100% of the amount of donations from corporate sponsors is allocated to projects. Operating costs are 100% covered by the founding sponsors.
