Around the world

An opportunity to combine health and support to communities 

Started in 2019, the Move&Care challenge has become a yearly tradition for the Lhoist group with a dual role of increasing the physical activity and wellbeing of all our employees and contributing to society.   

Using the AtlasGo app, employees are encouraged to engage in physical activities to collect points, altogether these points are then converted into a donation for selected charities. The first edition of Move&Care was done in partnership with the “ToWalkAgain” foundation, with the presence of Marc Herremans for kick off and to reward our best teams.  

Employees raised over 28,000€ for “ToWalkAgain”, to support the charity in offering rehabilitation facilities and activities to disabled persons. Ever since, the challenge has become a yearly tradition for our group, and an opportunity for employees to show their engagement, promote good causes and share nice moments together while taking care of their health.

The 2022 edition

In spring 2022, once again our employees have put their hearts into a better future and collected 1.500.000 points through the Move&Care challenge. Together around 700 employees spent time walking, running, or biking.  

This year, we also included mental well-being activities such as reading, meditating, and spending time with family. It was the opportunity to share nice moments together, compete for the best selfie or the best team and overall collect over 30.000€ to be shared across 15 charities around the world!  

‘Caring’ is not just a word at Lhoist. Once again, through Move & Care, we demonstrated our commitment towards our communities.
