Responsibility for society
At HORNBACH, we believe that success is something to be shared. That is why we pass on part of our business success to society.
Key focus on children and young people
However, our commitment to society is not limited to the work performed by the Foundation. HORNBACH supports the work of many local associations and organizations at and around our locations. When selecting projects, priority is generally accorded to projects offering long-term benefits to children and young people.
Environmental protection and heritage conservation are two other areas in which the company is active to the benefit of society.
Committed to the Rhine-Neckar metropolitan region
We live and work in the Rhine-Neckar metropolitan region. To promote the region’s development, we have become supporters of the association promoting the region. Here, we have made not only a financial commitment, but are also involved in terms of our personnel. Among other aspects, our region is characterized by its economic strength and scientific innovation and acts as a strong growth motor for the entire country. You can find out more at at the homepage of MRN.
Our quality promise – minimum social standards
As part of the quality we promise to our customers, one area particularly important to us is compliance with minimum social standards at our manufacturers and suppliers. We perform standardized audits on location at our manufacturers to ensure compliance with our requirements.
The conventions of the International Labor Organization (ILO) serve as a basis for HORNBACH's own regulations and have been adapted in line with our requirements. Our suppliers also have to ensure compliance with these standards at their own upstream suppliers. HORNBACH is working actively and insistently to ensure compliance with these regulations and to make sure that any problem areas are systematically identified and immediately remedied.
