Focus on social sustainability: FUCHS provides
"FUCHS understands social sustainability, which often gets forgotten about in our world, as taking equal responsibility for our employees, their families and society," says CEO
FUCHS supports sustainable projects all around the world in regions where the group's 58 companies operate, giving preference to those projects that pursue social goals in addition to certified climate protection. These social goals vary greatly depending on the location. "Whereas in developing or emerging countries, the focus is on profoundly existential issues such as nutrition, health and education, we support very different necessities and very specific needs at our home location in Mannheim with our Sponsorship Award," clarifies
In the second year of the coronavirus, many of the social projects supported are aimed at children and young people. This takes account of the fact that it is precisely these age groups who suffered greatly from the unusual pandemic circumstances. They were the ones who had to go without their social contacts and normal school and daycare attendance, for example.
Other projects under the theme of "Diversity" focus on integration, health and the interaction between generations, for example. "The amount of funding does not represent an assessment of the projects, but is based on how much is needed to implement the respective project," explains

The Innovation Award 2021 went to "Das andere SchulZimmer", which prepares young people who have dropped out of the school system and find themselves in difficult life situations for an extra-curricular secondary school diploma and subsequent entry into a profession. The project "Coding for my Future!" is being supported: Many young people are very interested in "media and programming" and they can acquire basic programming skills in parallel to lessons, thus increasing their prospects of a better professional future.
