Our Supported Initiatives

Strengthening Societal Engagement

We accept our role as global citizen and local neighbour and want to advance social development and environmental sustainability. This is why we support initiatives aimed at investing in our local communities, education, our people and the environment.

Corporate Responsibility Initiatives

Investing in our local communities

Communities such as non-profit organizations, charities and public institutions are vastly contributing to our society.

We at HENSOLDT support their work by sponsoring initiatives like “Aktion 100000” in Ulm or donating to charities like “Rowing against cancer” as well as by encouraging our employees to engage in voluntary work like supporting the facilities at “Lebenshilfe” and to share their expertise.

We also support the local organisations close to our sites world-wide to foster the communities around us.  

Corporate Responsibility Initiatives

Investing in education

Education gives us the knowledge necessary to understand the world around us. We at HENSOLDT want to excite young people for education especially in the fields of science, engineering and mathematics. Therefore we regularly engage in initiatives like “Girls’ Day”, the scholar competition “Invent a Chip”, “Jugend forscht” and also support local educational institutions.

Additionally, we offer internships and graduate programmes for young people. At HENSOLDT, innovation emerges from our people and the right mix of diverse individuals working collaboratively and inclusively according to their strengths, unleashing creativity and passion by what they do. We invest in a culture of collaboration and diversity and thus encourage our employees to share their knowledge and experience with young talents.

Corporate Responsibility Initiatives

Investing in our people

We take responsibility for our employees – for their safety and their future success. Therefore, at each of our sites we have a strict work safety concept in place, which we train und update regularly. In addition, we offer social counselling and health programs, such as fitness and preventive health courses.

The basis for our company’s success are our highly trained and skilled employees, ranging from our engineers, to our colleagues in operations and central functions. We help our employees to identify their strengths, to target their competences for a tailored personal development in terms of direction and pace and to keep their employability. From on-boarding, through a continuous training and development plan, we offer diverse solutions, adapted to individual needs and always keep our employees up-to date through continuous internal communications.

Our management takes care to get feedback from our employees on a regular basis in open meetings on our sites, to be able to improve our ways of working. We also see it in our responsibility to foster diversity and integration via special business networks.

Corporate Responsibility Initiatives

Investing in the environment

As a manufacturer of high-performance technologies with production facilities around the globe, we are driven by our responsibility to reduce the impact of our operations on the environment.

We have several sustainability initiatives in place at our facilities. We minimize our amount of waste by reducing, reusing, recycling and separating it. We save energy by using modern technology and take the greatest care when handling hazardous substances in our processes and products.

Our environmental officers ensure that our initiatives as well as legal, internal and regulatory requirements are implemented and fulfilled throughout our whole organization. Further to this we take care that our employees are aware at any time to save energy, paper and act in an environmentally friendly manner. The conscious use of the world’s environmental resources is fundamental to us at HENSOLDT.
