Corporate Social Responsibility
CSR (Corporate Social Responsibility) stands for the commitment the corporation has freely and very deliberately entered into as regards environmental, social and economic issues. This commitment is rooted in the corporation’s philosophy and culture. Social commitment is contingent on economic success. To Continental, achieving sustainability means establishing an acceptable balance for all involved between the economic requirements of the corporation and the valid expectations of its interest groups.
Treating people and the environment in a responsible manner plays a fundamental role in our success as a global corporation. As a partner to a large number of social groups, we support projects and campaigns beyond the actual activities of our corporation – for instance, in the fields of social improvement, safety, education, science and sports. We make systematic use of our decentralized organizational structure here, with strong levels of responsibility on site.
Information about our global activities can be found on our corporate homepage (www.continental-corporation.com) under “Corporate Social Responsibility”. The CSR report covers the corporate regulations and codes of behavior through to projects and measures undertaken by the divisions and locations which demonstrate that active environmental protection and social responsibility have been standard practice in the corporation for years.
Continental is a member of the UN Global Compact . The UN Global Compact is a strategic policy initiative for businesses that are committed to aligning their operations and strategies with ten universally accepted principles in the areas of human rights, labour, environment and anti-corruption. By doing so, business, as a primary driver of globalization, can help ensure that markets, commerce, technology and finance advance in ways that benefit economies and societies everywhere.
