Focus Area Corporate citizenship

As global construction group, HOCHTIEF designs living spaces all over the world and therefore interacts closely with the people with whom and for whom we work. We are part of society and, as a corporate citizen, take responsibility for the community wherever we do business and carry out projects. HOCHTIEF and its employees act on this mission through monetary donations and donations in kind, by contributing their expertise, and volunteering.

HOCHTIEF focuses these activities on two main issues: 1. Educating and promoting young talent, and 2. Shaping and maintaining living spaces. Both have a special relationship to our company as well as our business activities, and have a sustained effect. At the same time, they are relevant to all Group companies and corporate units. Here, we focus on Bridges to Prosperity.

Our objective:

We aim to get involved in the community wherever our company is at work or can offer added value by virtue of its capabilities

HOCHTIEF promotes "European Green Capital"

In 2017, Essen bears the title "European Green Capital." HOCHTIEF has close links with the region and promotes this project—located in the city of the Group's headquarters—as sustainability is part of our corporate strategy. The European Green Capital was honored for its high environmental standards. With numerous activities and events, Essen this year underlines the significance of environmental awareness and nature protection in the city. HOCHTIEF wishes the project and all participants sustainable success!
