HK employees give blood
Every year, HK employees have the opportunity to participate in a blood donation. Over 85 staff members participated in the campaign in 2022. For this purpose, the canteen is converted into a donation centre. In addition to the good feeling of helping other people, each blood donor receives refreshments and a small gift as a thank you.
HK supports the Bundeswehr’s deployment veterans
The Association of German Deployment Veterans, with its motto “Faithfully served – loyalty earned”, is a non-profit association that supports active and former soldiers of the German Armed Forces after deployment and war missions as well as their relatives, but also the families of fallen and killed comrades. The association supports soldiers and veterans, especially with the psychological and physical consequences of their Bundeswehr deployment (e.g. self-help groups, therapeutic care), ensures the lasting memory of fallen veterans and provides financial assistance in individual cases.
Heckler & Koch regularly supports the charitable purposes of the Association of German Deployment Veterans with donations.
One of UsThe Community of German Commandos
The support association “Einer von Uns e.V.” (One of Us) is an integral part of the “Gemeinschaft Deutscher Kommandosoldaten” (Community of German Commandos). The aim of the association is to support commando soldiers, members of special units at home and abroad, active and former members of the Bundeswehr and their families who have died or been injured in war, accident or terror and who are innocently in need. In this context, support can also be given to the surviving dependents of soldiers or officers who have died in action, as well as to injured comrades in the form of financial and/or material assistance.
Heckler & Koch regularly supports the “One of Us” aid association with donations.

More biodiversity on company premises
Our common goal for more nature-friendly company grounds is divided into several segments. We want to minimise soil sealing, allow partial areas to become overgrown, and provide living space for indigenous plants. We consciously refrain from using fertilisers and pesticides and are promoting the use of rainwater.
We want to provide endangered species with a habitat or a better food basis on the site without restricting the functionality of the site as a business location.
