Corporate Citizenship

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. We therefore support the communities in the form of financial support and voluntary work by our employees, in our five defined focus areas.

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 internal platforms, to generate synergies and to establish best practices.
