U.S. Ambassador Awards Hungarian Companies For Community Programs
Ambassador Kounalakis presented Active Citizenship awards to Harman/Becker Automotive Systems and Brunswick Hungary for their support of community programs in Székesfehérvár, Hungary. With these awards, the U.S. Embassy is recognizing the importance of community social responsibility programs of American companies in Hungary.

Harman/Becker Automotive Systems Kft. has been operating in Székesfehérvár since 1995 and provides premium audio and entertainment systems to global automakers such as BMW, Audi, Mercedes, Porsche, Volvo, and Ford.

The company supports local schools and provides meals to kindergartens ensuring that kids have the nutrition they need to learn. Harman also organizes open-house programs to teach students about the importance of environmental protection and in 2010 collected donations for the victims of red-mud disaster.

Brunswick Hungary opened a pinsetter manufacturing plant in Székesfehérvár, Hungary in 1998 and has had an active corporate social responsibility program ever since. In the last 3 years this includes healthcare prevention projects such as supplying equipment and devices to local hospitals to treat premature babies and support for cultural and youth programs like sponsoring youth football teams.

About Active Citizenship

In January 2012, the U.S. Embassy in Hungary launched an initiative to recognize active citizenship. Throughout the year and across the country, Ambassador Kounalakis recognizes citizens and organizations that are working to make a difference in their communities. Each month we feature the most recent recipient of the Ambassador’s Active Citizenship Award on our website and on the U.S. Embassy Budapest Facebook page. Ű
