Corporate Social Responsibility

Around 500 German companies in Korea are not only stable and engaged employers of about 100,000 employees in Korea, but have established scholarship programs, supported underprivileged groups, initiated charity programs and much more to take responsibility as an integral part of the Korean society.

In order to make these endeavors more transparent, KGCCI has been publishing the CSR Report of German companies in Korea since 2015. This report features examples of CSR activities of German companies in Korea and the manifold ways they engage with the Korean society.

This report is being publicly promoted and provided to Korean media outlets and important stakeholders in the CSR field (government agencies, National Assembly Members, etc.).
