Local Activities in Spain.

Knorr-Bremse is committed to social and community causes and has a long track record of engagement in social programs.

It is part of who we are as a company to participate in community life, to have a positive impact on the social environment at our locations, and to support people in need. Our social commitment rests on two pillars: Local Care and Global Care. Local Care covers all local activities at our sites, while the non-profit organization Knorr-Bremse Global Care supports longer-term and more extensive aid projects worldwide.

Some employees in Spain made up the Local Care group, which is the name given to the community activities carried out by our location and include donations, social projects, etc. We pay special importance to the corporate responsibility and are committed to reach an equal and more sustainable society according to the UN Global Compact, the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) and the Values of the Knorr-Bremse Group.

Local Care – Engagement at Our Sites

Local Care refers to local community involvement at our sites around the world. We engage in a wide range of activities, including:

  • Voluntary donations of money and time for charitable purposes and for projects in the priority areas of education, health, the environment and social cohesion.
  • Corporate volunteering programs in which Knorr-Bremse gives its employees time off work to support charitable organizations.
  • The “Get Involved” initiative, which provides donations to support employees’ voluntary personal participation in charitable projects in their free time.
  • “Matched Giving” programs, where Knorr-Bremse matches charitable donations made by its employees.
Social commitment at Knorr-Bremse – local and global.

Knorr-Bremse Global Care – Supporting People Around the World

Knorr-Bremse Global Care is an independent, non-profit organization that supports people in need in the vicinity of the Company’s sites and around the world. The two main priorities of Global Care’s funding activities are WASH (water, sanitation and hygiene) and education. Through these priorities, Knorr-Bremse Global Care is also contributing towards the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), especially SDG 4 Quality Education and SDG 6 Clean Water and Sanitation. In addition, Global Care provides emergency aid to locations hit by major disasters, regardless of whether or not they are in the countries of its priority projects.
