In 2017, the John Cockerill Group created the John Cockerill Foundation (a private foundation under Belgian law).

The aim of the foundation? To structure the John Cockerill Group's sponsorship policy, both in Belgium and abroad. The foundation echoes the values of the company, in particular respect for its history, the enhancement of its professions, but also its global strategy, its territories, its products and services and its markets. 

The foundation coordinates and supports on a daily basis any action that contributes to a better world. Its intervention takes the form of financial, in-kind, skills and service partnerships.
