Efforts for the greater, collective good – also called corporate citizenship – are social and environmental efforts for matters that go beyond a company’s operational activities. In line with our values, we strive to make a contribution to the welfare of the communities in which we operate, and to create additional benefit for society.
Our corporate citizenship activities focus on environment, education, health, culture & sports, and humanitarian aid.
Apart from Marquard & Bahls’ annual corporate donation to international aid projects, our efforts are decentralized. In addition to donations and sponsorship activities, our employees volunteer their time for several charitable projects and actions. The activities reported at regular intervals to Head Office are also shared directly between the sites via an in-house web-based knowledge database, to generate synergies and to establish best practices. The Team Sustainability of Marquard & Bahls is currently developing an overarching concept that brings together the local commitment of the sites with centrally initiated projects.
