In June 2003, Bertrand Delanoë, the Mayor of Paris, asked Arnaud Lagardère, the president of Lagardère SCA, to co-ordinate the support of the companies for the Paris candidacy to host the Olympic Games and Paralympics of 2012.
A few days later , Arnaud Lagardère accepted with enthusiasm and created "The Corporate Club Paris 2012". This club, that he is the president of, has now assembled eighteen of the greatest international groups together:

Accenture, Accor, Airbus, Air France, Bouygues, Carrefour, Crédit Agricole, EDF, France Télécom, Gaz de France, Lafarge, Lagardère, LVMH, Publicis, RATP, Renault, Sanofi-Aventis, Sodexho, Suez et VediorBis.

These large companies, which count for more than two million collaborators throughout the world, have decided to offer their expertise as well as their financial support to the candidature (equivalent to more than 30 million euro). These companies, the first supporters for the Paris candidacy 2012, had as an objective to mobilise the French economic resources in every diversity in order for Paris to succeed in hosting the Games.
