Renault Group announces the success of the second campaign of its Renaulution Shareplan, which was held from September 18 to October 2, 2023, for the Group’s employees. This plan included the attribution of 8 free shares to all eligible employees in 30 countries2. In 23 countries, eligible employees also had the opportunity to acquire shares on advantageous terms.
« The promotion of employee share ownership is fully in line with Renault Group’s transformation into a next-generation automotive company. With Renaulution Shareplan #2, we are taking the next step. At the end of this operation, the Group’s employees will hold approximately 5.25% of the company’s share capital. This success testifies to the employees’ confidence in the strategic orientations taken over the past 3 years. We will continue to pursue our goal of reaching 10% employee shareholders by 2030. Our plan is one of the most ambitious among all industries. » said Luca de Meo, CEO Renault Group.
