Social commitment

With our social commitment, we achieve positive effects for the company beyond our actual business activities.

Positive effects beyond our business activities

For us, social responsibility means not only exchanging knowledge with various research institutions and universities, but also demonstrating cultural, ecological and social commitment and supporting corresponding organisations and projects.

With our donation guidelines, we set ourselves rules for our social commitment. These guidelines govern our investment in the community, focusing in particular on the charitable nature of the social groups and projects we support. We do not make donations to political parties and churches or other political and religious organisations.

At the Hannover office, donation activities are handled by the Hannover Re Stiftung, which supports selected projects in the fields of art and sustainability. Our subsidiaries and branches also support specific projects for social and environmental issues in their respective countries.
