Bring communities forward through sports. At PUMA, we know sport is one of the strongest links between people – we feel it every day. And so, we readily share our Speed and Spirit through community engagement.
YOUR TIME MATTERS
That’s the motto of PUMA’s four key areas which our employees can focus on: *Sports & Health, Protection of Environment, Equality & Non-discrimination, Education.* These areas are not only part of PUMA’s corporate culture – they are our heritage. Thus, we are convinced they will help us to make a strong impact in the communities where PUMA is involved.

Driving Community Engagement
Pushing beyond the limits is what we do. And that counts just as much for our sustainable work.
Established by a group of PUMA employees in 2004, Charity Cat is a non-profit organization in Germany we have close ties with and regularly collaborate with. It is run independently from PUMA, and employees have donated their free time in funding and running various charitable projects. Charity Cat works on local and international projects, and supports long-term cooperation as well as short-term work for good causes.
For instance, Charity Cat gathered donations for Mexico after the country was hit by devastating earthquakes. They joined forces with other PUMA employees in every region to collect donations and could make a significant contribution in support of the victims. One of their long-term projects is their partnership with an orphanage in Haiti, an initiative that has been on-going for more than six years, and they aim to develop it further in the future.

PUMA North America annually hosts the Field Day Frenzy for The Boys & Girls Club of Greater Lowell, near PUMA Westford. The annual community service day for about 100 children is geared towards building teamwork and open communication.

Supported by PUMA, Charity Cat has recently established a partnership with Real de Indias, a Colombian non-profit institution constituted as a Football Club. Real de Indias works to educate and develop children and youths through football.
