Patronage and sponsorship

Societe Generale Bank & Trust's patronage and sponsorship strategy follows the Group's policy, with a particular focus on rugby, modern and contemporary art and socially-responsible sponsorship.

Sports

Our commitment to sport reflects Societe Generale's values: commitment, responsability, team spirit and innovation. It is important to show loyalty, build trust and maintain relations with our partners and clients, year after year.

Besides golf, disabled sports and bridge, Societe Generale's main sporting commitment is to rugby, through its partnership with the French Rugby Federation, the French national team and the National Rugby League.

Its involvement now extends beyond France's borders. For example, we have sponsored the Luxembourg Rugby Federation since 2003.

Societe Generale is an Official Partner of the Rugby World Cup 2015 to be held in England.

Contemporary art

The Societe Generale contemporary art collection was launched in 1995 and now boasts nearly 350 original works and 700 lithographs, prints and serigraphs. Structured around three main media - painting, sculpture and photography - it houses the work of well-known artists and up-and-coming creators.

By offering an overview of contemporary artistic creation, the Societe Generale collection combines an educational approach and an ambitious policy of corporate patronage.

In Luxembourg, we regularly host contemporary art exhibitions within the Societe Generale Bank & Trust offices, enabling both our clients and our staff to discover new talent. These exhibitions have included works by Morisson, Christelle Ferron, Anthia Mega, Carmen Dieschbourg, Rafael Springer, Solange Bertrand and Carmen Lazarescu.

Music

Through the Mécénat Musical Societe Generale association, which was launched over 20 years ago, the Group adapts its sponsorship policy to the changing needs of classical musicians (sponsoring orchestras and ensembles, lending instruments to young musicians, providing grants, supporting educational projects, etc.).

Societe Generale contributed to the reopening of the Salle Pleyel concert hall in Paris in September 2006, and has supported the prestigious events held there ever since.
