WACKER sees itself as a good corporate citizen – as part of the society in which we live and work. We practice social responsibility, especially in the regions where our sites are located.
Training young people in the natural sciences is especially important to us, because we will need dedicated scientists and engineers if we are to remain competitive.
Charitable and outreach projects to help children and young people represent another pillar of our social commitment, while the WACKER relief fund (WACKER HILFSFONDS) provides support to victims of natural disasters and helps rebuild devastated regions. As part of our social commitment, we seek enduring partnerships, preferring to invest in long-term projects.
Responding to the Coronavirus Pandemic
The coronavirus pandemic has forced us to deal with major challenges. We have taken numerous measures to protect the health of our employees while keeping business operations up and running. Safeguarding production is important because some of our products are used in applications for medical care and hygiene. We also contributed to initiatives in the neighborhoods of our sites, for example with in-kind donations. We have a special-feature webpage outlining how we are responding to the pandemic.
