Community involvement and sponsorship

As a responsible and engaged global corporate citizen, it is critically important that we contribute to and have a positive influence in the communities around the world where we are active.

Community involvement projects should be viewed as investments, with contracts, clear target groups and objectives, and measurable results.

We will not engage in activities that conflict in any way with our Code of Conduct, political or religious organizations, or projects that may be viewed as hazardous to health or the environment.

Four focus areas

Our platform for projects in sponsorship and community involvement includes the following four areas:

  • Innovation
  • Education and skills
  • Health and Safety
  • Local enabler
