BENTELER fulfils its social responsibility worldwide – and we are pleased to do so. We actively promote the social interests of the locations in which we manufacture. As our company grows we also have a growing responsibility – for good neighborly relations and for a shared future.
We take part in charity activities and social initiatives in the vicinity of our sites and are particularly committed to projects supporting children, young people and education. We thereby give young people an opportunity to start a career and shape their future, regardless of their background and level of education.
To accelerate innovation, we collaborate on an international scale with start-ups, for example in the areas of Big Data, mobility, production technology or logistics. As a cooperation partner, we also support various university research projects and thus fulfil our social responsibility.
Operating sustainably for the benefit of the region in which we manufacture: that is the aspiration of the BENTELER Group. We take targeted measures to support the development of our sites, for example purchasing raw materials, goods and services mainly in the area in which we manufacture and thereby creating value for the region.
Solidarity award of the Spanish Association ONCE for BENTELER plant in Burgos
ONCE, the Spanish association for blind and disabled people, awards solidarity prizes every year in Castilla y León. This year BENTELER Burgos was awarded the company prize. The reason given for the award to BENTELER was our committed culture, the social environment of our company, the promotion of integration programs, and the creation of jobs for people with disabilities. We do all this to actively promote equal opportunities and diversity.
Program for disadvantaged young people
Through a special training program we provide targeted support for young people with limited school education in Mexico and Brazil. Our multi-year program enables them to get their career off to a successful start. At our Brazil site alone, for example, a total of 70 young people had completed the program up to 2018.
