Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR)

Kiwa operates at the heart of society: our aim is to create trust in people's health and safety at work and at home. We carry out our business in close collaboration with many stakeholders, from customers to suppliers, from our employees to our shareholders and society at large. Therefore, we recognise and appreciate the corporate social responsibility we have towards all these stakeholders, society and the environment.

Ambitious business goals have been set for Kiwa towards 2022. It is only logical our CSR ambitions cover the same period and support Kiwa’s growth and expansion. Our CEO Paul Hesselink explains in our CSR statement what the fulfillment of a corporate social responsibility means for Kiwa.

Kiwa applies the CSR Performance Ladder, a management system and certification standard for Corporate Social Responsibility. Our CSR ambitions are also related and aligned to the United Nations’ Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). Read more about our CSR strategy on our global website.
