Is Paris’ Charles de Gaulle airport an area of prosperity in a disadvantaged region which suffers from the problems associated with this activity, but does not reap any benefits in terms of employment? This scenario could have been the situation for people living in the northern Île-de-France region (north of Paris) when the Paris airport was expanded. However, the fact that the Aéroports de Paris (ADP) was aware of its corporate social responsibility resulted in a different scenario. The organisation, created in 1996 by Patrick Dugard for the ADP (known today as Planèt’AIRport® NGO), is dedicated to understanding and accommodating the needs of populations affected by the airport‚ including their expectations in terms of employability‚ mobility and accommodation. After twenty years of growth and innovations‚ Planèt’AIRport® considers its international expansion with the primary concern of getting to know other people, regardless of who they are.
