At Subaru, we feel it is our corporate responsibility to show love and respect to all who interact with us. We strive to empower all members of our family – owners, employees, the communities we serve, and our industry at large – to grow and share their own positive impact.
We do this by living our Love Promise, through our annual Share the Love® event, by partnering with organizations that are building up our communities, by holding ourselves to the absolute highest quality and safety standards as a car manufacturer, and by reflecting on our practices often to identify ways we can grow and improve the lives and world around us. From our retailers volunteering in their communities across the country to our nonprofit partnerships here at home in Camden, New Jersey, we’re committed to the Subaru Love Promise.
At Subaru, we believe that embracing different perspectives and ensuring every voice is heard makes us a stronger family and company. Diversity, Equity, Inclusion and Belonging (DEIB) principles are woven into the fabric of our company and are the reason Subaru has received 100 percent on the Human Rights Campaign Equality Index year over year.
Every year, thousands of volunteer hours and paid time off are donated by SOA to serve local communities. We are proud that Subaru employees believe in the Love Promise culture and appreciate just how special it is. It is who we are. In the past 20 years, volunteers have logged nearly 78,000 volunteer hours in the communities where they live and work.
When you choose a Subaru, you’re not just choosing a car. You’re choosing a company with a lifetime commitment to protecting those you love. Learn more about our industry-leading safety innovations and why Subaru is a leading choice among parents with teen drivers.
Subaru of America Foundation
The Subaru of America Foundation was established in 1984 with the goal of supporting the communities in which we live and work. Today, we are proud to say that our foundation continues pursuing this goal and has awarded over $24 million through community grants, scholarships, and matching employee gifts to various programs.
When we share love, we all win. By the end of 2022 – the 15th year of the Share the Love® Event – Subaru and its retailers are on track to have donated over $250 million to charities like the ASPCA®, Make-A-Wish®, Meals on Wheels®, the National Park Foundation™, and over 1,700 hometown charities, including those in our own neighborhood of Camden, New Jersey.
Subaru is deeply committed to the empowerment of its headquarters’ home – Camden, New Jersey – having actively invested in the Camden area for over 30 years. When Subaru officially committed to moving its headquarters in 2016, we wanted to enhance our relationship with the Camden community through increased support of areas such as education, job readiness training, and the environment. Today, we continue to work with our partners to stay actively involved in the city’s revitalization and to empower Camden.
As one of "the most community-minded companies in the United States," Subaru was named a 2021 Civic 50 Honoree by Points of Light, the world’s largest organization dedicated to volunteer service. Subaru was selected based on four dimensions of citizenship and social impact – investment of resources, integration across business functions, institutionalization through policies and systems, and impact measurement. The 2021 selectees were also considered based on their progress on commitments to racial equity and their communities.
The Subaru Eco-Friendly Retailer Program is a voluntary program that encourages Subaru retailers to reduce energy usage, decrease water consumption, and reduce waste sent to landfills through activities such as recycling or eco-related community outreach. More than 32% of Subaru retailers participate in the Eco-Friendly Retailer Program.
