COMMUNITY AND SOLIDARITY
Thinking globally, helping locally: as a global company, Zschimmer & Schwarz accepts its responsibility for the common good of our society. Our family business has been upholding a philosophy based on mutual respect and care since its formation in the year 1894. Since the company was founded in 1894, social responsibility and sustainable action have been part of the DNA of our family business.
“For more than 125 years, our company has consistently laid the focus of our activities on our fellow human beings”, explains Monika Börner, shareholder of the Zschimmer & Schwarz Group. “With this philosophy, we aim to give something valuable back to society and to involve ourselves in projects that deliver direct and sustainable effects at our business locations.”
To mark the 125th anniversary of the Zschimmer & Schwarz Group in 2019, a charitable programme was set up on the initiative of the shareholder families. All employees around the world were invited to suggest local initiatives that the company could support with a donation. In 2022, this campaign entered its second round and will be repeated every two years from now on.
In total, more than 20 social projects of various kinds were selected in Europe, which are supported by Zschimmer & Schwarz with around 250,000 euros.
