We are committed to being good stewards of our communities and the environment; in fact, Stewardship is how we refer to our social impact initiatives at Kohler. As stewards, we're passionate about helping the world solve its water and sanitation needs; about enhancing the quality of life for current and future generations. We believe a better world is possible.
Each year, World Toilet Day (November 19) raises awareness of the crucial role that sanitation plays in reducing disease and creating healthier communities. Kohler is committed to finding solutions for universal sanitation access and has partnered with leading non-profit organizations to bring meaningful change to those communities most in need.
We’re asking, “what if?” What if everyone in the world had access to a toilet? What if waste was properly managed everywhere in the world? What might that mean for the future of the 4.5 billion people who don’t yet have access to adequate sanitation?
When your passion becomes your work, you want to share the joy. Engineer Megan Kennedy-Pierce hopes to pass the “engineering bug” to her mentees.
Art & design
More than 500 artists have passed through and been inspired by our Wisconsin factories since the Arts/Industry program began in 1974. Watch former artists-in-residence share their experiences.
Through our longstanding Arts/Industry residency, artists transform our materials into unexpected, thought-provoking art pieces that are winding their way through a regional exhibition tour.
In our journey to better, we use Environmental, Social and Governance (ESG) criteria as a framework to transparently report against our goals and progress while ensuring the actions we take are embedded in our business strategy and operations.
For more than 40 years, Kohler Co. and the John Michael Kohler Arts Center’s Arts/Industry program have invited artists from around the world into the Kohler Pottery, Iron and Brass Foundries, and Enamel Shop to collaborate with factory associates and inspire one another.
