Our Commitment: Social Responsibility

Giving back to society

Social responsibility has always been part of our identity. We would like to give back some of our success and provide help around the world to those who need it – in the form of initiatives and financial support. During our Social Days, our employees roll up their sleeves and knuckle down to work: Together we build playgrounds, renovate children and youth centers or plant forests. As part of a national scholarship program, the “Deutschlandstipendium”, OSB AG provides funds to students across Germany.

What is new is our large-scale donation initiative. We are currently supporting two selected projects with regular donations – and we are also bringing others on board. How? At all upcoming trade fairs, we will offer visitors to our booth the opportunity to make a symbolic donation. The actual monetary donation will then be made by OSB AG.

SOS Children’s Villages

The social project

This independent, non-governmental organization helps abandoned and needy children across the world to move towards a better future. It provides them with a loving and safe home, enables them to attend school and receive an education, and stands up for their rights. In addition, SOS Children’s Villages provide families in poor countries with access to medical care and offer ways of helping them to help themselves. The organization also provides emergency aid in countries affected by poverty, natural disasters or civil wars.

Help in Rwanda

The ecological project

Due to climate change, Rwanda has to contend with seemingly endless periods of drought. As a result, harvests fail to come, livestock die of hunger or thirst, and poverty in the country increases. With the development of five agroforestry model eco-farms, the SOS Children’s Villages want to help small farming families in the region to secure their livelihoods through adapted, environmentally friendly agriculture. The aim is to prevent climate-induced rural exodus and the break-up of families, as well as to create an agricultural infrastructure that is sustainable and ecological.
