In a rapidly-changing world and faced with new challenges, the role and the position of businesses have been redefined. At Orange, we are convinced that digital technology is a catalyst of progress, for society and for individuals alike. That is why we have chosen to harness our strong local identity to create shared value using the amazing source of innovation and creativity that is digital technology.
As a consequence, Orange has launched an open innovation strategy supporting technological start-ups. At the same time, we also wanted to add a more inclusive and societal dimension by participating in the rise of social innovation, whether in France with La Ruche or in Africa via the implementation of incubators (the CTIC in Senegal, the CIPMEN in Niger…). Through our partnership with Europe Tomorrow, we are helping to promote social innovation, a pivotal factor in territorial and individual development.
These different initiatives are part and parcel of our approach as a responsible operator in a world undergoing a digital transformation, based on three sustainable performance drivers: providing trusted assistance to our customers and employees, supporting local economic and social development and establishing a balanced ecological equation.
