Worldwide solidarity at Hettich

Hettich gives € 54,000 in support for voluntary work worldwide

As in 2020, the Hettich team has continued to engage in voluntary work in times of the coronavirus pandemic. Across the globe, colleagues from Hettich operating bases have been involved in various projects within the "Hettich Ehrenamt 2021" volunteering campaign. 108 projects in Germany, the Czech Republic and Australia each received funding to the tune of € 500. This means the Hettich Group made out donation cheques worth a total of € 54,000 in 2021. Of this, € 32,500 alone went to projects in Germany which involve Hettich colleagues.

Anyone working at Hettich can apply for funding in aid of projects they do voluntary work for. Funding in the amount of € 500 go to projects related to social matters, education, science, nutrition, exercise, culture and the environment.

"Commitment to society is an integral part of our corporate values and is very close to our hearts. This is why we are delighted that so many of our colleagues are involved in charitable associations and have been supporting this commitment through the 'Hettich Ehrenamt' volunteering campaign for no less than eight years now," says Laura-Sophie Putschies, Corporate Communications at Hettich.

Since the "Hettich Ehrenamt" volunteering campaign was launched to mark the company's 125th anniversary in 2013, over 1,150 projects have already received funding of no less than € 650,000.
