Enhancing local communities, protecting sensible data
Our main issues in the area of society are community engagement and data protection.
The cities and counties in and near which our plants and sales offices are located are the lifeblood of our business activities. That is why Krones AG supports clubs, organizations, events, and charitable initiatives local to Krones sites in Germany. Our sites and subsidiaries outside Germany also have the freedom to actively support their local communities. Krones’ charitable giving and sponsorship strategy is laid out in our groupwide charitable giving and sponsorship policy, whose aims are to ensure that funds contributed achieve the greatest possible benefit to the respective beneficiaries and support projects that are aligned with the company’s values and interests.

Protecting personal data as well as information and information-processing systems is a key concern for Krones. Every one of our employees strives and is obligated to maintain seamless information security across our entire organization – for internal data and systems and for the products and services we deliver to our customers. That is essential to our ability to maintain trusting business partnerships and to ensure uninterrupted operation of our own IT.
