Many affiliates of Messer are involved in social and environmental projects. This involvement ranges from donations of money or goods – to social institutions, schools and hospitals – to participation in days of action, through to the sponsoring of projects. The type of involvement depends on the needs of the country in question.
Messer also implements its commitment to the social and health sectors through the Dr. Hans Messer Social Foundation set up by the Messer family. It makes donations to help people worldwide who find themselves in need through no fault of their own. The funding comes from income arising from the foundation’s capital reserves and from donations – including from Messer employees who forego their gifts on company anniversaries, significant birthdays or similar events.
Examples for our social engagement may be found in our current CSR report.
