As a family-owned business, we value our roots. Our company was founded in the Lower Rhine region where it has been growing ever since. Only through the commitment of our employees was it possible to achieve this success. This is why we want to share this success with the people in our area. We support the associations and charities in our region and like to award our service contracts to organisations within the local neighborhood.
However, social responsibility does not simply stop at our front door. As a global player, we try to help the people in those areas in the world where the most needy are to be found. This is why we support a range of different, internationally-active aid organisations.
Plan International Deutschland e.V. is an international children’s aid organisation whose activities are based in Africa, Asia and Latin America. Plan empowers girls and boys so that they can improve their social environment through long-term programmes and projects.
Making sure that education is available to everyone and ensuring equal opportunities and gender equality are values that we support. For this reason, we sponsor a child through Plan International Deutschland e.V. for each and every one of our employees.
ABS Safety is a member of NABU - the German Nature and Biodiversity Conservation Union. NABU aims to inspire people to commit to preserving nature, the environment and biological diversity through joint actions. NABU is one of the largest environment associations in the Federal Republic of Germany.
Not only are we a member of NABU, we also work actively on continually developing our internal and external business operations so that they become more resource-saving and environmentally-friendly - from the packaging and logistics involved in our products to our energy consumption.
The aid organisation I.S.A.R. Germany dispatches doctors and trained rescue teams to areas of crisis. Around 170 active supporters are engaged all over the world - the vast majority of whom are volunteers. They provide help following natural disasters, accidents and humanitarian catastrophes.
Since 2015, I.S.A.R. Germany has also been working in Germany - supporting the Kleve district and the town of Duisburg in coping with cases of major damage. For example, they can track down and rescue missing persons in the aftermath of an accident using their own dog teams.
The non-profit aid organisation Aktion pro Humanität e.V. has been supporting and providing humanitarian aid to Benin and Niger since 1998. Aktion pro Humanität never supplies relief goods or donations directly to the governments but instead always distributes these locally in collaboration with APH members.
In Germany, this association, which is based in the Lower Rhine region, is solely supported by voluntary members who bear the costs of the projects themselves. As a result, 96 to 98 percent of the donations generated flow directly into the projects.
BIG Challenge Deutschland e.V. is an association which was founded by farmers wanting to actively contribute to the fight against cancer through sporting activities. Sponsorship and donation money is collected on BIG Challenge Day - a social sports event - with 100 percent going to the German Deutsche Krebshilfe e.V. cancer association.
ABS Safety has been supporting the BIG Challenge for a number of years - both through donations and the energetic support of our employees who year after year take part in the walk or on their bikes.
