KERN Global Language Services has committed itself to take part in independent initiatives and certifications so that its compliance with international standards is verified.
Since the founding of the company in 1969, responsibility, security and sustainability have been the central pillars of the KERN Group philosophy. In order to fulfil our social responsibility requirements, we have committed ourselves to participating in independent initiatives and certifications, which regularly evaluate us according to international standards.
KERN has been awarded the EcoVadis Rating Platform for its exemplary economic activities. The certification is based on the compliance to international standards of corporate social responsibility. Four areas are considered in the framework of the evaluation: environment, society, ethics and resource acquisition.
As part of the "United Nations Global Compact" initiative, the KERN Group is committed to aligning its business strategies and activities with the ten universally recognised principles of human rights, working standards, environmental protection as well as the fight against corruption.
For more than half a decade, the KERN Group has been making a Christmas donation to the Clementine children’s hospital (Dr Christ Foundation). This donation helps to directly support the activity of the hospital, which puts families and their youngest members first. As a family company, financially supporting this institution is a particularly important topic for the KERN Group.
The KERN Group has been the official partner of Eintracht Frankfurt football club since 2018 and it promotes the multilingual capabilities of the players and staff by providing language training. The partners are bound by the fact that they both have roots in Frankfurt am Main as well as the fact that they both really live an international philosophy. On top of that, they are bound by mutual values, such as respect, openness and a team spirit.
The KERN Group has been the official sponsor and education partner of the top flight German handball team MT Melsungen since 2016. On the one hand, the full-service language service provider ensures positive emphasis and sustainable growth in the region with its funding. At the same time, the KERN Group accompanies new foreign players with intensive language training, and as such, it is promoting their fast and comprehensive integration.
