NORMA Group considers it self-evident to act as a socially committed company and an active member of society. We want to have a positive impact on the regions and local communities in which we operate. In our core business, we make an important contribution in a variety of ways, for example through our human resources management, anti-corruption measures and environmental management.
We value exchange and close contact with our neighbors at all NORMA Group sites. We conduct Corporate Citizenship activities closely related to our core business. Employee involvement makes a decisive contribution to the success of our activities.
Our social commitment activities are based on our Corporate Citizenship Guideline (CCG) and are managed at Group level by the CR Officers. They receive support from employees with decentralized responsibilities at our production sites, on organizing our global Help Day, for example. With the NORMA Clean Water project, we are also developing model measures to show how global challenges – especially the scarcity of water as a resource – can be addressed.
All activities are weighted and evaluated after their implementation. Depending on the respective projects, key figures are collected and communicated, in the CR Roadmap, for example. (CR Roadmap 2020)
NORMA Clean Water
For NORMA Group, water is a strategic focus area with a direct connection to our core business as we provide innovative and resource-saving joining technology. Our flagship social commitment project therefore naturally focuses on water.
Civil society is crucial for the functioning of society as a whole. Against the backdrop of the current social challenges arising from megatrends such as migration and global disparities, NORMA Group aspires to get involved and play an active role. To this end, we specifically promote social projects at the NORMA Group sites.
Commitment at the Sites
NORMA Group has long been supporting local non-governmental organizations through donations and sponsorship, focusing on social, philanthropic and cultural projects in the regions. The approach is decentralized because we believe that the efficiency of the support measures depends on the conditions in the region.
NORMA Group intends to continue operating and acting as a responsible partner to society. The successes of recent years are therefore to be consolidated and expanded. Our goal is to consistently achieve good to very good assessments of our social commitment in stakeholder surveys.
