Social Report ‘22
The future we want

The 2022 Annual Report is available in English, French and Spanish. Here you can find all the data on activities implemented and results achieved during 2022

The title we have chosen for our 2022 Social Report is "The future we want": with this phrase we have summarized our ambition to look forward, to push ourselves further, beyond the barriers of inequality, of poverty, of war, to help build a future in which the continued discoveries, the advances in education, in healthcare, in technology, in protecting the environment, in human rights, are accessible to all, and can help everybody to grow. This ambition is fueled by being present in the field, where, in 2022, we carried out 364 projects to help more than 7 million people.

Activity sectors and policy areas

When classifying our activities, we want to represent the multi-sectoral nature of our work. So, we have decided to use a multi-dimensional approach: each project is assigned a main sector, but a project can also be categorized into other sectors and sub-sectors. Our activities have also been broken down into our current policy areas of greatest significance. To do this we have considered the approaches we take and our implementation mechanisms. In our Social Report, we have broken down our data into projects based on our main sectors of activity and policy areas.
