As part of our commitment to society, numerous initiatives have been launched in areas such as sports, education, cooperation and help for the most disadvantaged groups.
Being globally present also means taking a global responsibility for the ACTO. At all of our locations, we therefore commit to this obligation towards the public. In this sense, we do not just restrict our national and international commitment to financial support.
Rather, we support crisis projects with our expertise and targeted product donations. We offer our commitment in various committees for the design of an ecologically and economically sustainable future for future generations. We place great importance on ensuring that our donation activities are transparent and that they take place according to regulated principles. We therefore introduced a group-wide donation policy in 2014 that makes this possible for us.
Above all, we want to support non-governmental organizations (NGO) in the regions where we are active as a group, in order to raise the appeal there. A particular concern for us is the support of children and young people, and of disadvantaged groups. We have therefore decided to choose partnerships that cover the areas of education and social issues in particular. In the last years we are initially entering into partnerships with several organizations:
Smaller donation projects
Through our long-term commitment, there are additional charitable activities that in particular benefit local, non-profit organizations. These activities are specifically taken care of by our affiliates. The allocation of these funds is carried out under the considerations of the group donation policy.
During flooding disasters ACTO donated e.g. trash pumps and air dehumidifiers in order to reduce the damage to the victims. This assistance came to those affected in the crisis regions directly and easily. If we received government reimbursement for these services, this was passed on to local forces. ACTO was even able to help with international natural disasters.
