Supporting community and social projects at the locations where we operate is especially important to us. In selecting these projects, we choose initiatives that reflect our three spheres of activity, namely health, environment, as well as education and culture. In addition, we provide disaster relief and support people in need in the communities in which our sites operate. Those responsible locally decide on the specific measures that are supported.
2018 was a very special year for our company. We celebrated our 350th anniversary. Yet we wanted to share our joy not only with our colleagues, we also wanted to light a spark in our social environment. That´s why we took the opportunity offered by this milestone to further strengthen our commitment. Our objective was to conduct 350 charitable activities at our sites around the world from January to December 2018. We succeeded, and even exceeded our target! By the end of December 2018 we had registered a total of 366 good deeds.
