In line with Part&Act
In recent years, there has been a dynamic of rapprochement between public interest organisations and traditional companies. The Project Part & Act, created 5 years ago, has helped developing this dynamic through awareness-raising and concrete solutions that led member companies of IMS Luxembourg to exchange and maintain privileged relations with associations and charities.
In view of the current complexity of social and environmental challenges, developing new models of partnerships between actors of general interest and traditional businesses as a mean of action is becoming urgent. Alongside patronage, other forms of cooperation are emerging, focusing on responsible practices, co-construction and societal innovation.
The PARTNERS WITH IMPACT Project, co-organised by IMS Luxembourg, the Ministry of Labour, Employment and the Social and Solidarity Economy, the ULESS and 6zero1 ensures the continuity of Part&Act. It aims at stimulating the development of these new partnerships models in the Grand-Duchy by providing tools and a methodology, and by encouraging meetings, exchange and co-creation between business and society.
It is therefore a question of bringing together the member companies of IMS Luxembourg and social enterprises around more specific axes of cooperation and in response to environmental and social challenges.
The project has two distinct objectives:
Intensify the exchange of skills between IMS members and social enterprises in a win-win logic through the setting up of action-oriented workshops
Identify the primary societal issues of the territory and respond collectively by concrete initiatives involving both IMS members and social enterprises
Methodology based on the four types of partnerships identified by the French association Le Rameau
Skills workshops aim at providing social enterprises with the time and skills of corporate volunteers. Various workshops will be organized collectively or individually around pre-identified skills needs.
Through these skills workshops, social enterprises can also bring their expertise (environment, disability, integration) to the IMS Luxembourg member companies and support them in the evolution of their CSR practices.

The co-creation workshops aim at developing innovative and collaborative models that use the strengths of social and traditional enterprises to respond effectively and forcefully to social and environmental challenges.
The goal of these workshops is therefore to create innovative solutions with high social impact, benefiting each of the stakeholders.
Four-workshops cycles are organized to answer collectively each challenge identified upstream and adapted to the Luxembourg context (prevention of over-indebtedness, fight against obesity, renewable energies, recycling ...).
