As a responsible and committed company, Rubis has given itself a double goal through its endowment fund Rubis Mécénat: promoting artistic creation and supporting associations working in the fields of education and health. In 2011, the Rubis Group created its endowment fund Rubis Mécénat to strengthen links between its subsidiaries, contribute to the absorption of the Group into its socio-cultural environment and to revitalize the company culture. As an industrial, social and cultural protagonist in the countries in which it operates, the Rubis Group strengthens its actions on each territory thanks to the implementation of its cultural projects.


More information

Rubis Mécénat supports artistic creation:

  • by undertaking lasting social art initiatives in the countries in which the Group operates. By collaborating with the local subsidiaries and joining forces with local and international artists, Rubis Mécénat nurtures socio- cultural projects, genuine creative platforms at the heart of local communities. Rubis Mécénat brings to young adults an educational artistic programme and the ability to go through life with the practice of the visual arts. These programmes, enriched by a system of scholarships as well as cultural events, are designed to let personal vocations, future prospects, and new talents come to the fore.
  • by guiding emerging and mid-career artists in France and abroad, commissioning works for specific places as well as for the Group’s industrial sites. The fund also commissions artists invited within the frame of its socio-cultural projects in  South Africa, Jamaica, and Madagascar to create works in dialog with the projects. In addition, Rubis Mécénat purchases artworks to the supported artists destined to enrich the corporate collection.

In parallel, Rubis Mécénat supports, with each subsidiary of the Rubis Group, associations working in the fields of education and health. As a complement to a financial support, the collaborators take part in local community life by engaging in sponsorship activities, fundraisings and collaborative events in the field.
