Corporate Social Responsibility has a long tradition at Siegwerk. The social projects that the company gets involved in are fully targeted on the welfare of children and young adults. In addition to multiple local activities, in 2010, Siegwerk began a close partnership with SOS Children’s Village Worldwide to support relevant projects worldwide. We call these our Lighthouse Projects. Over the past few years, the partnership has succeeded in improving the lives of many children and adolescents at several SOS Children’s Village facilities.
Siegwerk has also become a partner in the global YouthCan! employability initiative of SOS. The goal of this project is to empower young people and help them prepare for the transition to independence and the job market. Siegwerk allows young people to gain practical experience in a real working environment. Committed local Siegwerk employees help to develop the professional qualifications of the area youth – working as role models, trainers and mentors.
The SOS Children's Village Cup is an award for companies that are sustainably committed over the long term to the maintenance of SOS Children's Villages worldwide.
In total, Siegwerk has so far donated several hundred thousand euros to the SOS Children’s Villages worldwide, with employees regularly volunteering on-site. For this commitment, Siegwerk was awarded the SOS Children’s Village Cup three times in a row.
