Our Commitments to CSR

Committed to Our People, Our Communities and the Environment

Corporate Social Responsibility reflects our commitment to the communities where we live and work, the lives we touch and the environment around us.

ITW’s Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) strategy is built around four key elements: our people, our communities, our environment and our governance & ethics. As part of our vision to be one of the world’s best-performing, highest-quality and most-respected industrial companies, we will continue to support our communities and our employees to make a difference in the world around us.

We encourage and support our colleagues globally in their efforts to make positive contributions to the communities where they work and live, through financial gifts and volunteerism. We amplify these efforts in both our company giving and community engagement efforts, as well as in our ongoing support of programs and initiatives to improve access to a high-quality education and workforce/career preparation for youth in under-served communities.
