Social Commitment

The family-run companies which make up igefa feel obliged to contribute to the cities and communities where they operate, since they have already been working there for generations.

They offer customers living there a better service than their competitors with large corporate group structures, because they are neighbours who know and understand each other.

This commitment particularly benefits social projects and aid organisations which help children and disadvantaged people - in a range of different ways:

  • Diagram of the donation activities of igefa material donations such as Christmas gifts to children in need or goods to aid organisations
  • Financial donations to foundations and associations
  • Fundraising activities at trade fairs, company anniversary celebrations and other corporate events
  • Voluntary assistance by our employees

We do not make donations to political institutions.

This is explicitly prohibited in the igefa Code of Ethics.
