Our Volunteer Commitment

Our two American ACTEGA companies that since January 1, 2016, have formed the organizational unit ACTEGA North America, used their first joint management meeting in Williamsburg, Virginia, in the spring of 2015 to work for a good cause. During a team-building measure, the participants built play houses for the local children’s protection program Child Development Resources, which according to ACTEGA North America every year provides some 1,000 families with counseling and care services.

At our St. Louis site, employees of our company ELANTAS PDG have continuously supported various social projects in the region for years. Among other things, they donate food, clothing, and money to nonprofit organizations every month, for example the aid organization United Way Greater St. Louis.

In Germany, ECKART again refrained from giving Christmas presents to customers and business partners in 2015. The pigment manufacturer donated the 20,000 euros that were saved to the regional aid organization “Lebenshilfe im Nürnberger Land” and the international organization Save the Children.
