Corporate Social Responsibility

By people, for people. As a globally active premium supplier for building services, water management and industry, we bear a lot of responsibility towards our customers, society, the common good and the environment. Responsible conduct and social engagement are, therefore, an integral part of our successful business development strategy.

Our special responsibility as a company

For the Wilo Group, corporate social responsibility (CSR) means more than just donating and sponsoring.

CSR with Wilo primarily stands for sustainable corporate management: fair business practices, employee-focused personnel policy in the intercultural context, economical use of natural resources, protection of climate and the environment, local engagement and responsibility in the supply chain.

As one of the market leaders with over 60 subsidiaries on all continents, we think and act both globally and locally.

For this reason, we are involved in numerous national and international corporate citizenship programmes to promote culture, education and development assistance.

But in our homeland, the Ruhr area, too, we are setting many projects in motion. The Wilo culture of socially responsible action starts right on our doorstep.

A corporate social responsibility network for Dortmund

A corporate social responsibility network was thus set up for Dortmund on our initiative.

The goal: to stimulate social commitment in as many companies as possible in the Dortmund corporate landscape.

We want to contribute our experience to make the new network a success in the future.
