11 Believing in Better
As a global company, we understand that how we do business impacts the communities in which we live and work. That's why we operate with the interests of our wider society in mind and are committed to using our resources to build a better world. Many of our 38,000 Kohler associates invest their time and apply their talents to back our words with actions. Our internal incubator program, Innovation for Good (IfG) , is a place where associates develop products and solutions that address some of the world's most pressing global challenges. For the past several years, we have held an internal social innovation competition where ideas are pitched, and winning teams are given the opportunity to take an idea from prototype to market. We believe that in order to grow our business responsibly, we must have programs in place that positively impact the environment and society at scale. The only way to achieve this is to align our resources with our core business. Providing clean, safe water and sanitation are the foundation of Kohler's business, which is why we are focusing many of our efforts on the critical challenge of providing safe water and sanitation for as many people as we can. Through collaboration with partners like World Vision and Water Mission, coupled with our associate innovations and KOHLER products, we are helping to build a better planet , better communities and better lives .
