Our social commitment
Many things in daily life will not succeed if we do them alone. It's great when helpful neighbours or friends are on hand to offer support. Because when we act together, things get done more easily and lead to success more quickly. And being able to help is also a wonderful feeling. We are needed – this not only enriches others but also ourselves.
Together with many others, we are involved in various projects that create value for ourselves and our environment. This covers a very wide spectrum, and includes associations, science and culture, local kindergartens and retirement homes. Get an idea of our commitment!
For HARTING, social commitment means: WE ARE ACTIVE, CREATIVE PARTICIPANTS IN OUR SOCIAL ENVIRONMENT...
What counts are our connections
In associations and scientific organizations, we meet like-minded people and join our forces. The exchange of ideas and discussions lead to a common position, which finds its way into society in the form of guidelines for action, political positions or even standards.
Working in an association means listening, getting to know other opinions, and shaping them. In doing so, I get to meet clients, market participants and partners who are working on current topics as well as economic and technical challenges.
For sustainable networked mobility, we need motivational forces like HARTING to build our RailCampus OWL.
The direct exchange with other companies helps us to become aware of exciting scientific questions that have much practical relevance for us.
Industry 4.0 is the recipe for success made in Germany – thanks to committed companies like HARTING that have worked on it from the very beginning.
Illinois has always been a great place for manufacturing and for business. I am proud to see our work in action and providing to our local Illinois economy.
...and we SUPPORT OUR SOCIAL ENVIRONMENT.
We also want to strengthen our roots. That is why we provide targeted support for cultural, sporting and family activities locally and abroad. It's the many small things that create a space worth living for us – a space which we like to help shape.
- Donation to the Red Cross
- PEACE! – Setting an example together
- Handball professional sport
Creating value for people with the Red Cross (only English)
HARTING in Italy
We support the Red Cross in Milan. Their helpers are in action for the population every day. They provide medical aid, carry out rescue operations and help fight poverty.
Another important project is the CRI4KIDS project. Through this project, 50 families with small children from zero to two years of age in difficult living conditions can be supported. The little ones are provided with essential food and products for early childhood.
Parasports – Sport for all
HARTING in Poland
We are the main sponsor of the first Wroclaw AMP-Futbol team. This is a football team for people with disabilities. The initiative is another step towards breaking down barriers, responding to the needs of people with disabilities and connecting different lifestyles.
KiTec – children discover technology
HARTING in Germany
Within the scope of KiTec, we sponsor the Espelkamp primary schools and award the annual HARTING Researcher Prize to the winning team. In the competition, groups of kids demonstrate their great ideas, their skill, their team spirit and their creative joy.
Setting an example together
HARTING in the USA
At the Chicago PEACE Week, PEACE stands for "Partnership," "Education," "Arts," "Compassion," and "Enterprise." We join others at this charity event to advocate for positive and lasting change in Chicago neighbourhoods that are in need of revitalization.

HARTING in Germany
Did you know that handball is the second largest sport in Europe? For our boys at the German Handball Federation or GWD Minden, however, it is probably the largest. As main handball youth sponsor, we support the passion of our young professionals. In addition to encouraging the sporting team spirit of our handball players, we promote many other regional and national sporting activities.
Role models with heart and soul
Our social commitment is deeply rooted. The Harting family itself has been committed to the regional and inter-regional infrastructure from the start. In this way, they not only create a home for HARTING employees, but for many other people as well. And they are role models. For our local subsidiaries around the globe, and for the people within their sphere of influence and beyond.
