Disability: let’s tour our actions around the world

Each entity within the Orange Group does what it can to ensure digital technology lives up to its full potential to benefit as many people as possible, particularly people with disabilities and their caregivers. Numerous initiatives are ongoing in our 26 operating countries and 220 countries where we support businesses through Orange Business Services. Here is an anthology of past, current, and future flagship actions that contribute to disability inclusion in the workplace and society, an overview of our adapted products and services, and more about how we’re focusing on raising awareness for all.
