We see ourselves as part of society and take the responsibility that goes with this
Responsible corporate management also means not losing sight of our society’s stability and ability to meet future challenges. Our CSR activities revolve around United Internet for UNICEF. In addition, we contribute actively to a caring and just society by taking part in numerous initiatives and programs, both within Germany and abroad.
Our United Internet for UNICEF foundation has supported projects run by the United Nations Children's Fund around the world for roughly 15 years. In 2020, it reached an impressive milestone: it has raised a total of €50 million in donations, helping improve the situation of children in crisis regions.
We want to actively promote an inclusive society. Not just as an employer, in our relations with our staff, but also in our business relationships with third parties. For example, we have created long-term partnerships with recycling specialist AfB and with GDW – two organizations that play a valuable role in creating jobs for people with physical or mental disabilities.
