Our Communities

Our target is to contribute 0.1% of profits to nominated international charities and a further 0.1% of profits to local charitable causes around the world. Local charity committees at each of our sites support charitable causes that are important to them locally with volunteer work, fundraising and donations. Local teams are empowered and encouraged to decide how to distribute funds and support their local communities.

In addition to these local charitable and community activities, Rotork has reviewed its support to major charities this year to ensure they are aligned to our own business activities. We support three major charities - Pump Aid, Marine Conservation Society and Renewable World.

Pump Aid

Pump Aid’s mission is to achieve lasting positive change in poor and rural communities by improving the quality, availability and use of water through training local entrepreneurs. They use simple but effective pumps to provide access to safe water, child-friendly toilets and handwashing stations. They ensure sustainability by supporting and training communities so that they can maintain these new facilities. Rotork’s contribution will help to install more pumps and will support pre-school nursery and community programmes.

Renewable World

Renewable World alleviates poverty in the developing world through the installation of community-owned renewable energy systems. Projects provide clean energy to improve crop yields, enable communication and trade and support the growth of new businesses. Education is improved as children can study in the evenings, and schools can open later for adult education. Affordable energy improves health through the use of clean lighting and cooking sources, and because clean water can be pumped direct to households.
