Mobility for all: how Renault's social conscience is getting people back to work

A far-reaching program designed to integrate France’s poorest citizens back into work has been launched by Renault. Called Renault MOBILIZ, it’s a unique social/business initiative that aims to make motoring more accessible for those who can’t afford a car.

It is estimated that as many as eight million people in France live below the poverty line. Because they cannot afford to buy, run or maintain a car – and especially if they live in rural areas with poor public transport facilities – their lack of mobility means it is difficult, if not impossible, to find work or to fully enter society. And without work, they’ll stay in poverty… it’s a vicious circle.

An interpreter in her own words

An interpreter in her own words

Yuki Morimoto says she, like every interpreter, is the most attentive person in the room. Just inches from Nissan CEO Carlos Ghosn – as if tethered by invisible cuffs, such proximity could have a similar effect on anyone.
