WKK Cares - our commitment to the world

Our way to give something back to the world

Support for environmental and social projects - local and worldwide

Under the name "WKK Cares" we have made it our mission to donate part of the profits we generate for charitable purposes.

Every year we support various projects in the following areas:

  • Environment, sustainability & protection of species
  • Education
  • Health promotion
  • Disaster relief
  • Famine
  • General humanitarian aid

The annual budget for WKK Cares is donated in full and is broken down as follows each year:

  • 50% goes to a major project
  • 50% is initially held back for acute cases. If, fortunately, no acute case (e.g. natural disasters) occurs, the rest will be donated to one or more major projects

In practice this mean that, for example, 50% would be donated to cleaning up the oceans of plastic. Should a disaster occur, such as the bushfires in Australia in 2019, part of the remaining 50%, e.g. 25%, will first be donated to aid organizations that provide aid on the ground. If there is still a balance left at the end of the financial year, it will either be donated to other projects or urgent aid purposes.

The decision which projects and humanitarian aid will be supported is made together by all employees of WKK.

In other words, WKK Cares is a kind of relief fund of WKK.

In the following, we would like to briefly present some of the projects we support - only together can we preserve our planet and make it a better place for all inhabitants, whether human or animal.
