As we looked back to mark Meritor’s centennial anniversary in 2009, we also
celebrated a long history of forward thinking. Our heritage of community
involvement and social responsibility demonstrates our belief that we can
improve the well-being of the communities that so generously welcome us.
With efforts large and small, Meritor pledges to support and strengthen the
communities in which our employees live and work. Our employees join in the
effort. By volunteering, they provide personal, local support for schools,
neighborhood associations and a variety of organizations, making a clear
difference in their own cities and towns.
Volunteerism and community support is part of our DNA. Each manufacturing site
in the Meritor family has its own local strategy and plan of action, and this is
supported and encouraged at all levels of our company. At a broader level,
through direct financial contributions, the Meritor Charitable Trust Fund and
International Giving Program supports:
- Arts and cultural programs
- Civic responsibility
- Health and human services
The Trust Committee oversees strategies and budgets at the local level.
Meritor’s Environmental and Social Responsibility Committee of the Board of
Directors annually reviews the company’s community involvement activities around
In our communities, a top priority for Meritor is partnering with schools to
support educational initiatives – especially those that emphasize engineering,
science and technology. At least 50 percent of budgeted global contributions are
dedicated to this area. We know effective learning not only boosts the potential
of individuals and communities, but also significantly enhances Meritor’s
ability to remain competitive in today’s global business environment.
