Beckers’ global Common Cause commitment: Children and youth in our communities
We committed ourselves to one global Common Cause to drive our community engagement: Children and youth will be the focus of our activities.
Social engagement is deeply rooted within Beckers. One of our 2030 Sustainability Strategy goals is to set an example as a socially engaged company. Numerous examples from our sites show that we care about the communities around us. In many cases the volunteering activities, partnerships and sponsoring are focused on children and youth.
In order to reach our goal in 2030, we are setting up a strategic process and global guidelines for our community engagement. In November 2021, we conducted two global workshops where we agreed on our Common Cause for community engagement throughout the whole company: children and youth. In the workshops, HR representatives from all sites and the global people stream team members were invited to brainstorm how Beckers impacts local communities. We discussed the challenges children and youth face in different countries and what we can do to create real positive impact for them. The outcome serves as a foundation for local action plans and community engagement activities.
