It takes 20 years to build a reputation and five minutes to ruin it. If you think about that, you’ll do things differently.
As a responsible corporate citizen our belief is that financial performance and responsibility for our environment, our employees and the global communities we touch are inextricably linked.
Have you noticed when you walk in the sand you leave footprints that can take a long time to disappear?
It’s the same in business where every process can leave a long-lasting impression on the environment. In addition to headline accreditations, such as ISO 14001, Chart has implemented a series of environmental initiatives designed to ensure that we always tread lightly and carefully.
We are proud of our people who volunteer their time, talent and energy to engage with community projects and make life a little better for those less fortunate.
At any moment in time Chart employees across the globe are assisting their local community, or helping out their less fortunate brothers and sisters in other parts of the world through participation in charitable initiatives and with not for profit organizations.

Social Engagement - Ferox style
Our Ferox facility, located in the city of Decin in the Czech Republic, has a proud history of social engagement in the local community. Each year proceeds from the Christmas party are donated to an orphanage in nearby Ceska Kamenice and Ferox employees also donate their time working, alongside the children, in the orphanage’s garden, as well as participating in other fund-raising events for local hospitals and charities.
The company sports’ day is a popular event and every 2 years Ferox opens its doors to families and friends. Employees are also quick to respond to a friend in need and have recently raised money for the families of injured and bereaved colleagues and those rendered homeless by disastrous floods.
