Enhancing local communities
Krones maintains over 100 locations around the world and is thus an integral part of many local communities.
The cities and counties around our plants and sales offices are the foundation on which our business activities stand. That is why Krones AG supports clubs, organizations, events, and initiatives that seek to promote charitable causes local to one of our Krones sites. Our sites and subsidiaries outside Germany also have the freedom to become involved in their local communities.
Krones’ charitable giving and sponsorship strategy is laid out in our groupwide charitable giving and sponsorship policy. Its primary aims are to
- Achieve the greatest possible benefit to the respective beneficiaries with the funds employed and
- Support projects that are in alignment with the company’s values and interests.
As part of the groupwide CSR rollout, the topic of charitable giving and sponsorships will be expanded to our sites abroad in accordance with the policy. We will also be introducing a groupwide KPI for this concept. The sites and subsidiaries will largely manage individual activities and funding autonomously.
Detailed facts and figures about the material aspect „social commitment“ are provided in the Non-financial Report 2018.
