We see business as a great responsibility at first. The future is up to all of us. At ŠKODA AUTO, we contribute to the company's development, especially in the areas of traffic safety and technical education, which are close to us. We want to increase the quality of life of the population in the Czech Republic and, together with regional governments and non-profit organizations, we support projects focused on infrastructure development, barrier-free mobility, support for disadvantaged children and various cultural and sports activities. During the coronavirus pandemic, we supported first-line healthcare professionals and seniors by distributing the necessary supplies. We think of a sustainable future and place great emphasis on environmental protection. With the help of the #SKODAAUTOhelps social responsibility strategy, we turn these ideas into reality.

As part of our long-term efforts to develop these regions, we support healthcare, environmental protection, leisure activities, infrastructure and safety development, cultural and sports activities.

VOLUNTEERING

Our employees participate in volunteering both independently and under the auspices of ŠKODA AUTO. We have participated several times in the nationwide project "Let's clean up the Czechia, Let's clean up the world", where our regions are the target locations. The employees and their family members clean up parks, forests and natural sites. Our employees, trainees, students and customera are also involved in the "ŠKODA Trees" planting. 

EMPLOYEE COLLECTIONS

Since 2014, employees of the Czech ŠKODA AUTO plants have been contributing to employee collections. It is a joint initiative of the company, KOVO Unions and employees. In 2014-2015, employees donated CZK 1.3 million and the carmaker doubled this amount. The money went to organizations that our employees had chosen - People in Need, Life for Children, Helpline, Helppes, Safe on the Roads and 20% of the amount raised for the Vasantrao Naik orphanage near Aurangabad plant, India.
