OSK accepts corporate social responsibility in diverse fields – within the PR and communication sector, by advocating greater justice in global economic life, and on behalf of people in need. In this context, we are keen to forge lasting partnerships. Continuity and dependability are integral to our culture.
Since 2014, OSK has been supporting Reporters Without Borders, an international NGO that campaigns for freedom of the press and denounces censorship.
All OSK employees worldwide become honorary members of RSF and thus, support the right to freedom of expression. Their annual subscription fee is paid by OSK.
Since 2014, OSK has been participating in the UN Global Compact, the world’s largest and most important corporate sustainability initiative. It is a call to companies to align strategies and operations with ten clearly defined universal principles on human rights, labor standards, environment and anti-corruption, and take actions that advance societal goals.
The German participants are grouped in the German Global Compact Network (DGCN), which currently numbers more than 350 enterprises – from DAX-listed corporations and SMEs to small specialty businesses – and almost 60 organizations representing civil society, science and the public sector.
OSK has been supporting the German Foundation for UN Refugee Aid UNO-Flüchtlingshilfe since 2015. Its mission is fundamentally to improve the living conditions of refugees and provide aid that has a lasting effect.
In particular, OSK’s contribution fosters educational opportunities that offer new prospects to young and adult refugees.
For many years beforehand OSK supported the SOS Children’s Village Gabú in Guinea-Bissau, which is one of the world’s poorest countries. In this instance too, the aid focused on funding educational establishments.
