Our approach to sustainability can be summed up in one phrase: doing the right thing – by our people, as a business, and in our world. This means acting in a safe, ethical manner in everything we do.
GKN China in the community
GKN China is committed to conducting its business with integrity, providing our employees with a safe working environment, minimising our impact on the environment and making a positive contribution to the communities in which we operate.
Formula Student is a testing ground for the next generation of world-class engineers. It challenges university students from around the world to design and build a single-seat racing car.
GKN has supported Formula Student globally since the very beginning in 1997 and has been an official partner of Formula Student at Silver Stone UK since 2014 and a Silver Sponsor of Formula SAE in Michigan US in 2017. In China, GKN has been supporting the Formula Student Chongqing University team for three consecutive years.
At GKN, we are committed to playing our part in the protection of the environment. In 2016, GKN China officially adopted six hundreds-year-old trees in Shanghai through a joint agreement between GKN and the government. The trees range from 350 to 600 years old and represent GKN‘s connection with the prosperity and deep roots of the local community.
