Social & Governance: ESG at GARBE
- Social responsibility
Employee leadership and development
Social commitment to our employees includes an extensive list of different ways to strengthen development in our company
- Special day off for a social day, where employees can get involved in social activities on their own initiative
- Support for flexible working models for each employee
- Pension schemes
- Further education and training to improve the social and ecological compatibility of daily work
- Regular employee events
- Subsidy for job tickets on public transport and participation in a company fitness programme
Similarly, it is important that our employees engage with the issue of sustainability. For this reason, further training courses are held on a regular basis. Even small changes have a big impact. Thus, at GARBE we enable the use of a paperless way of working and support the promotion of various companies that are committed to the issue of sustainability. One example of this is the search engine Ecosia, which plants a tree for every search entry when used.
Those responsible for sustainability management at GARBE is the management team itself and a department set up specifically for this purpose – “Corporate Development” – in close cooperation with the respective specialist departments.
The commitment of each individual
In 2017, there was a DKMS donation campaign sponsored by GARBE and carried out by our employees, where every blood donor could also register as a bone marrow don or. One of our employees has already been able to save a young life.
Since this campaign – which also collected donations for the “smashsmard initiative” GARBE is planning further campaigns.
Half a century of tradition and a clear sense of commitment
For more than 50 years, we at GARBE have acted according to a sense of commitment we all share in that we always fulfil our social and ecological responsibility. Together with our employees and stakeholders, we create sustainable added value for our society. In this way, we have already been able to reliably create work, trade, storage and production facilities for several thousand people.
In our collaborative efforts with our business partners, we take great care to be a reliable partner, including in terms of sustainability and social responsibility. In a relationship based on partnership, we make sure that our business partners, like us, also set high standards when it comes to social and ecological responsibility in society.
