Our Foundation

The Trafigura Foundation provides long-term funding and expertise to improve socioeconomic conditions of vulnerable communities around the world. We join forces with experienced organisations on the ground to achieve long-lasting impact with programmes tailored to local realities. 

Until 2016, we have supported programmes in the fields of sustainable development, education and integration, and health. In 2017, we framed a new strategic vision which will bring us to concentrate our resources towards two areas of action: Fair and Sustainable Employment and Clean and Safe Supply Chains.

Besides these two focus areas, the Foundation’s other mission remains to pool the charitable and community-oriented initiatives of Trafigura employees around the world and to encourage, support and develop these activities through its dollar-for-dollar matching policy and “Charity of the Year” initiative.

Charity committees

Twelve Charity Committees have been set up by Trafigura employees around the world, reflecting the Group’s deep-rooted commitment to helping the communities in which it operates. Committees typically meet once a month to organise fundraising activities for a philanthropic cause of their choice. Every dollar raised by our employees is matched by the Foundation.
