OUR COMMITMENT TO SOCIETY

Social commitment has a firm place in Evonik’s corporate culture and our understanding of values. As a company, our aim it to create vallue for society that goes beyond our own growth targets. Our donations and sponsorship activities complement the wide-ranging contributions made by the personal commitment of our employees worldwide.

STRATEGY AND MANAGEMENT

Our commitment comprises donations and sponsorship activities, with a special focus on Evonik’s core competencies: creativity, specialization, self-renewal, and reliability. We only sponsor projects and initiatives that fit our core brand. In addition, our aim is to foster the positive development of society around our sites worldwide. Our operating units support their own projects tailored to their business and local communities - within our strategic guidelines, which are set out in our policies on donations and sponsorship. Overall, we concentrate our social commitment on the areas of education and science, social projects, culture, and sports.
