Corporate Social Responsibility - General Tire

For the Continental Tyre Group, achieving sustainability means establishing an acceptable balance between the economic requirements of the corporation and the valid expectations of our stakeholders - groups such as customers, shareholders, employees, partners and suppliers. Our corporate policies document the principles of cooperation with our stakeholders and are practiced within the company. Compliance with these is monitored by the Executive Board.

As an international corporation, Continental are committed in particular to actively promoting the observance of human rights where we can. As part of our sustainability policy, Continental is involved in a number of voluntary initiatives, including public-private partnerships, with which we take responsibility for ensuring that human rights are put into practice.  The guiding principle  here  is that a  company  and its  regional  branches  can only contribute  towards  compliance with human  rights  as a complement  to  politics, not as a replacement of it. We ensure that Continental does not contribute towards any human rights infringements within its sphere of influence, particularly with regard to forced, compulsory or child labour.

We accept our social responsibility and participate in a wide range of initiatives in the UK and across the globe.

COMMITMENT TO SOCIAL WELFARE AND TRAFFIC SAFETY

As a corporation on the global market, Continental has a decentralized organization with strong local responsibility. Charitable projects, donations and other activities are therefore initiated and supervised as far as possible at the discretion of the decentralized units. Exceptions to this include national projects and challenges or our commitment in the event of international disasters. As an automotive supplier, to us social responsibility also means making a social contribution in the fields of mobility and traffic safety. A primary goal of all the activities of the corporation and its employees is direct, fast and lasting support.

COMMITMENT TO EDUCATION AND SCIENCE

Training and advancing the next generation are key tasks for every company hoping to secure its long-term success. Far Continental, the on-going shortage of qualified engineers represents a particular challenge. In 2011, we hired around 1,500 university graduates and young professionals, same 400 of whom were in Germany.

COMMITMENT TO SPORTS

Sports inspire, sports connect. They mean something to people all over the world, whether the focus is on fun or striving for perfect technique, if their motivation is jay or pride in achievement. All aspects affect people at their care and strike a valuable balance with other activities. For years, we have been actively promoting long-term sports projects and programs for our employees and the general public.
