GDF SUEZ celebrates its commitment to football with Operation "Make Us Dream!"

June 5, 2014

With a few days to go until the football World Cup in Brazil, GDF SUEZ is organising a large photo and video competition on Facebook from 4 June to 10 July 2014.



Called "Make Us Dream!" (#FNR), this operation invites Internet users to pose with a football in an amazing place. The photos and videos to get the most votes will then be selected by a jury. The people who created them will win an extraordinary trip to Brazil or Spain. Operation "Make Us Dream!" aims to increase the profile and awareness of the GDF SUEZ brand amongst a new community of social network users.

"The World Cup, a global event, is important for the Group for two reasons. Firstly, football is an effective vehicle for the Group's commitment to CSR, as shown by its support for several sporting associations: the Bernard Diomède Academy, Gol de Letra and the Fondation du Football. In addition, the competition will take place in Brazil, a country where GDF SUEZ is the leading private electricity producer.", says Valérie Bernis, Deputy General Manager responsible for Communications, Marketing and Sustainable Development.

To inspire the participants in the competition, GDF SUEZ employees have joined in and dared to show their dribbling skills alone or in a team at their place of work1.
