The Fondation d’entreprise Hermès listens to and engages with the wider world. Our work embodies our assiduous cultivation of authenticity and diversity as we explore a broad range of fields connected with artisan know-how and creativity.

Our ability to rise to the great challenges facing society today – poverty and discrimination, the quest for lasting peace, education, the depletion of natural resources – depends on our ability to harness our shared intelligence to the search for humanist, culturally-focused responses. In a complex, erratic world where globalisation too often means standardisation, an impoverished worldview and bland, homogenised tastes, the Fondation d’entreprise Hermès reflects the distinctive voice and deep artisan roots of the house of Hermès, with its long history of social solidarity based on mutual support and collaboration.
