Kia Motors Corporation is dedicated to fulfill its role as a global corporate citizen through balanced growth and sharing, based on a corporate culture of trust and respect. We continually strive to uphold trust-based management, environmental management and social contribution as the foundation of our business activities. We also recognize that fulfilling our social responsibilities is the key to sustainable, long-term growth as well as a firm commitment to our employees, shareholders, customers, local communities and ultimately, the entire world.
We don’t just have a global corporate responsibility but also a local one too. In 2014 Kia partnered with a new UK charity helping people in Kia's local community - Walton On Thames. Established in 2001, Walton Charity is a combination of 11 charities that help provide almshouses, allotments, grants and relief for those in need. The Charity works mostly in Walton-on-Thames, Hersham and Oatlands, with some service benefits also available to the wider community.
Walton Charity aims to make a real difference to its beneficiaries and makes a positive impact on people’s lives. The Charity aims to keep the spirit of the original charities, whilst providing guidance and direction to ensure they can respond to the changing needs of the local community.
The Charity’s current activities fall into three areas:
Housing and Care
Provides housing for older persons through sheltered accommodation or residential care.
Helps to utilise and maintain over 400 workable plots within the area.
