Social responsibility is firmly rooted in our corporate strategy
For DEGAROUTE®, Corporate Social Responsibility means equally taking into account economical, environmental and safety issues.
With DEGAROUTE® we focus on improving road safety in communities around the world and providing markings with a high environmental performance.
In order to promote road safety in communities around the world, DEGAROUTE® additionally funds road markings in locations that are frequented by particularly vulnerable road users. For example in Wuzhou, China: In front of the Gong Cheng Lu primary school, a red and white, anti-slip pedestrian crossing based on DEGAROUTE® is making the way to school a lot safer.
The move is part of Evonik’s latest corporate responsibility activities in China in response to the United Nation’s Decade of Action for Road Safety 2011-2020, a campaign to stabilize and reduce road deaths. Together with its partners, Evonik evaluates the opportunity to provide additional free road marking for school areas in various cities across China.
Corporate Social Responsibility achievements are regularly reported in a transparent manner. Please see our sustainability section on the Evonik corporate website for more information.
