The primary objective of the Fondation Bâtiment-Energie - which is funded 50% by the four founding members and 50% by the state - is to help the construction industry achieve Factor 4 performance levels by 2050. To do this, it funds research carried out by the organisations that win its calls for projects.
As the Fondation Bâtiment- Energie was recognised as being of public benefit in 2005, it is entitled to receive donations and bequests. Part of these donations can be claimed as a tax rebate on presentation of the receipt, in accordance with current tax laws.

If you are a company go to:

  • The Founders' Club, reserved exclusively for companies wishing to make a donation greater than or equal to that of the founding members, i.e. 1 million Euros. New Founders are invited to take part in Board meetings in an advisory capacity. Founders are invited to take part in project progress reviews.
  • The Donors' Club, reserved exclusively for companies wishing to make a donation of €200,000 or more. The members of the Donors' Club elect a president, who is invited to take part in Board meetings in an advisory capacity.  Donors are invited to take part in project progress reviews.
  • The Sponsors' Club, reserved exclusively for companies wishing to make a donation of at least €20,000. The company's name will appear in the Sponsors' Club members list, on the Foundation's website.
