In the Community
Our goal of making the world a better place starts in the communities where we operate. That’s why we play an active role in fundraising and research initiatives, sponsor sporting and cultural events, and contribute directly to university funds.
Each year, through several Kruger Funds, Kruger Inc. awards scholarships to students at various educational institutions in administration, science, engineering, pulp and paper, and management studies. Through this support, Kruger Inc. promotes advances in scientific knowledge and research, as well as the development of skills in regions where it has operations.
Since 2002, more than one million dollars have been granted to support emerging talent through university and college foundations.
Kruger Inc. has created partnerships with:

Distinction that benefits others
Kruger established a recognition program to highlight significant health and safety milestones at its facilities across North America. Every recognition comes with a donation that is awarded to a local charitable organization selected by the winning facility. As a result of this program alone, more than $30,000 is donated to community organizations annually.
