Our portfolio companies are also socially committed; the Donges Group for example supports the charitable association Aid Kenya Watoto e.V., founded in the Rhineland, and thus the work for deaf children in Kenya. In addition to supporting the ones in need, Mutares is naturally keen to create a socially fair environment for its own employees. We pay attention to regulated working hours, adequate wages, fair conditions at the workplace and diversity, as well as training and further education opportunities.
Compliance with occupational safety and health protection is strengthened by the introduction of a “zero accident” safety culture. In the past year, for example, Kalzip GmbH set an internal company record of more than 1,000 accident-free days.
