GK's Manifesto for Thriving Communities


GK is a global company with offices all around the world.

Since our foundation in 1990, we are committed to supporting strong communities through various initiatives in the fields of education, research & development as well as health and social work.


In 2023, our management team together with employees across all our regions took the strategic decision to widen the benefactors of our contributions from selected organizations.

We at GK understand the critical role corporations have on a local scale and the duty to work on building strong symbiotic relationships with local institutions and communities.
Our engagement is driven under the credo:
Think Global, Act Local
“The enormous challenges of our time demand our commitment in many areas and on all continents. As part of our code of values, we take this responsibility seriously.”
