Making locations more livable
Social responsibility is deeply anchored in Covestro's corporate culture. The company's approach aims at improving quality of life for people. After all, Covestro benefits from a prosperous environment around its sites, where a majority of Covestro's employees live.
Covestro has developed a donation strategy specifically tailored to the needs in North Rhine-Westphalia (NRW). It is based on feedback from those who benefit from its donations. Discussions with representatives from the local communicities help Covestro to determine the areas in which the company's support is needed most.
Almost all municipalities mentioned digitalization as a key area for improvement. Schools and other educational institutions, in particular, often do not have access to the proper equipment. Hence, Covestro donations mainly support projects that accelerates the digital transformation around its three NRW sites in Leverkusen, Dormagen and Krefeld-Uerdingen and make municipalities brighter places to live.
In Brunsbüttel, Covestro regulary supports a variety of associations, initiatives and schools. This allows a wide range of different project partners to benefit from Covestro's commitment to its production sites.
