As the year wraps up it is time to look at the top CSR companies that “walk the walk” not just “talk the talk” when it comes to putting socially responsible practices into action. These are the companies that demonstrate a commitment to their local and global community. Here are a few companies leading the way:
Bosch Group: For the Bosch Group, a German multinational engineering and electronics company, sustainability means securing the company’s long-term success while at the same time helping protect the environment for current and future generations. The company continues to operate by the values of founder Robert Bosch, who said, “I have always acted according to the principle that it is better to lose money than trust.”
- Program Highlight: Ninety-two percent of the share capital of Robert Bosch GmbH is held by Robert Bosch, which spends dividends exclusively on charitable initiatives. At the same time, the Bosch Group’s corporate structure helps ensure its financial independence and enables the company to plan for the long-term and make investments that secure its future. Bosch focuses on four sustainability-related areas of activity: environment, products, associates, and society.
