Social and community contribution

Honda engages in social and community initiatives across Europe to share joy with people and ensure it is a company that society wants to exist. 

Our fundamental principle of ‘respect for the individual’ drives us to make positive contributions to local communities and wider society, improving the quality of people’s daily lives.

Honda’s Four Pillars of Social Contribution

Our contributions in the areas of education and community, diversity and inclusion, safety, and the environment comprise Honda’s four pillars of social contribution. We proactively measure our programmes against the United Nations’ Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) as part of our global approach to social contribution.

Rugby Legacy Fund

In 2022, we partnered with a national UK newspaper to create the Telegraph Honda Rugby Legacy Fund, a programme of grassroots investment in 15 teams designed to inspire the next generation of female rugby players. This allowed the clubs to invest in their women’s rugby programmes and access places at a specialist girls’ rugby training camp.

Creating a diverse and inclusive workplace

We believe that an inclusive workplace where people are treated equally is fundamental to creating an environment that empowers our associates and enables them to be themselves. This is also key to the future success of the company.

That is why we embrace diversity and inclusion and are committed to bringing together people from different cultures, backgrounds, races and beliefs. We respect individual differences and promote equal opportunities for everyone, regardless of their race, gender, gender identity, age, sexual orientation, religion, national origin, educational background, past career, and social or economic status.

Ahr Valley Disaster Recovery Support

Contributing to the safety, good health and well-being of people is a key part of our social responsibility. This includes supporting local communities when disasters affect their lives, homes, and fundamental infrastructure.

In response to heavy flooding in Germany’s Ahr Valley in August 2021, Honda provided instant support to disaster recovery efforts by donating four specialist high-performance generators, which formed part of the power supply for the communities in the region.
