What we do

A key objective of Knorr-Bremse Global Care is to promote the independence and individual responsibility of people in need and to fund projects and programs that have a clear focus on results. This is the only way the organization can help to bring about changes of structural relevance that have a broad impact on society, open up new prospects and achieve lasting results.

Our contribution to the Sustainable Development Goals

In September 2015, the United Nations adopted the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development, with 17 global Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) and 169 targets. The SDGs are aimed at governments, businesses, organizations and every individual around the world. The goals for 2030 include, for example, promoting environmental and climate protection, fighting hunger, realizing equal opportunities in education, and creating more peace and justice. The SDGs highlight the tremendous challenges facing humanity in the coming years. At the same time, they provide orientation, showing the changes that must take place to preserve the world for future generations.

Our funding areas

Knorr-Bremse Global Care is convinced that education is the key to a better future and should be a universal right. We support projects along the entire education pathway, from kindergarten and elementary school through to secondary school. As a company-funded organization, we have a particular interest in vocational education.

In addition, we are committed to providing access to clean drinking water, improving the sanitation infrastructure and promoting hygiene and the efficient use of water resources.

Our projects in the key areas mentioned above also take into account the additional aspects of women empowerment and climate protection.

In individual cases, we support emergency relief measures in the aftermath of natural disasters, including in areas outside our main focus countries.
