Showing ]init[iative – practising social responsibility

We see ourselves as a corporate citizen and we have therefore also consciously assumed responsibility for our environment and society since the company was founded in 1995. In the field in which we operate, there is also equally space for life and creativity, which is full of opportunities and which we would like to support through effective activities.

Advocating democratic, social and ecological values, with which a lively, colourful and socially balanced society can grow tomorrow is a fixed part of our company structure. It is expressed through our daily operations and the involvement which we demonstrate where help is needed and where we see the need for action.

The sustainable support of children and young people is particularly dear to us. However, social projects where we can bring in our professional know-how are also supported by us. So for example initiatives which champion a lively democracy through political participation on the internet.
We are proud of our employees who support other people in their spare time in numerous and creative ways through diverse social projects. We therefore support voluntary work – for example with a donation or support services from our specialist department. This provides help and motivation for turning a good idea into a good deed.
