Local Care – social commitment at our sites

Knorr-Bremse has always supported social and charitable institutions at its sites around the world. Together with our local partners we want to make a contribution to the welfare of the local community.

Social commitment at the individual Knorr-Bremse sites goes under the title of Local Care. To us, this means projects and measures that are selected, funded and supervised autonomously by the sites in question.Local Care instruments include

  • Voluntary donations of time and money in aid of charitable causes and for projects in our main funding categories: education, health, environment and social cohesion;
  • Corporate volunteering, in which employees are allowed time off work to support charitable organizations;
  • The ‘Get involved’ initiative, which provides donations to support the personal voluntary work carried out by employees in their free time for charitable organizations and projects in the support categories mentioned above;
  • Matched giving’ programs, in which donations from the workforce are topped up by the company, which matches or multiplies every donation made by employees.

The main areas supported by Local Care are education, health, environment and social cohesion.
