Gorenje boasts of a many decades-long tradition in the area of corporate social responsibility. At first, activities focused on employees and the local environment, but with the years passing they were extended to other participants as well. Today, the philosophy of a socially responsible and sustainable-oriented performance and development is an inseparable part of Gorenje’s successful business.
Numerous significant events are being organised throughout the year for employees and the wider community in the field of sports, culture, science, education and health. Support and sponsorship to all generations of the Slovenian Nordic teams within the Ski Association of Slovenia and to the teams of the Handball Club Gorenje Velenje is traditionally provided by Gorenje. Special attention is paid to the Gorenje Recreation Association, the Gorenje Pensioners’ Club, the Gorenje Cultural Association and to Gorenje’s singing choir that provides for a quality physical and spiritual life and consists of most of Gorenje’s employees that live in Velenje, former employees and their family members, whereas it is also local community oriented.
Among others Gorenje supported in the field of culture more projects of the programme Maribor – European Capital of Culture 2012. Most visited was an exhibition on the tradition of design in Gorenje »Gorenje with vision«. Gorenje also participates in numerous charity activities in the fields of health care.
