Cor­por­ate cit­izen­ship

GERRY WEBER In­ter­na­tion­al AG is com­mit­ted to cor­por­ate cit­izen­ship both on a re­gion­al and on an in­ter­na­tion­al level.

Our ex­ist­ing part­ner­ships with aca­dem­ic in­sti­tu­tions such as Hoch­schule Nieder­rhein, our long-stand­ing spon­sor­ship of wer­tkre­is Gütersloh and Bodelschwinghsche An­stal­ten Beth­el in Biele­feld as well as our sup­port of the Good Hope Center in Tan­zania are ex­amples of our com­mit­ment to so­ci­ety.

Viva con Agua

As part of our com­mit­ment to sus­tain­ab­il­ity, we star­ted char­ging 10 cents per plastic bag on 1 June 2016, which has helped cut the use of plastic bags by over half. In early March 2017, the com­pany took yet an­oth­er step to­wards sus­tain­ab­il­ity and in­tro­duced paper bags on which a fee of 10 cents is charged. GERRY WEBER uses the pro­ceeds from the sale of the plastic and paper bags to sup­port Viva con Agua de Sankt Pauli e.V. A non-profit or­gan­isa­tion from Ham­burg, Viva con Agua is com­mit­ted to giv­ing people per­man­ent ac­cess to clean drink­ing water and sup­ports water pro­jects around the globe. The pro­jects fun­ded by Viva con Agua are im­ple­men­ted pro­fes­sion­ally and trans­par­ently by or­gan­isa­tions such as “Welthun­ger­hil­fe” as well as local or­gan­isa­tions.
