Social commitment

Memmert is a family-run company firmly rooted in the region of Central Franconia. Responsibility towards employees and business partners has always been a tradition. Support is given whether in sickness or personal problems and as thanks we receive decade-long loyalty and trust. 

 

 

Today, sustainable corporate management at Memmert is evident in many facets. Environmental awareness, concern for society in general and social commitment have expanded corporate responsibility over the years.

What do we do for the society?

  • Integration of refugees into the German labour market through training or jobs
  • Generous support of numerous social projects, national as well as international 
  • Practical help with social projects

For many years at Christmas time, Memmert gives a generous 5-digit sum to the  SOS Children's Village. The idea of founder Hermann Gmeiner is as relevant today as it has ever been because there are still children who are growing up without parents or who cannot be properly cared for in their families. Hermann Gmeiner would probably never have imagined that his first SOS Children's Village, established in 1949, would grow to become a global organisation which, hand in hand with institutions such as SOS Children and Youth Service or SOS Job and Training centres, fosters the social and career development of children and adolescents.

Memmert has also provided assistance following the devastating flood catastrophe in Pakistan, as well as for the church renovation in Büchenbach or with the establishment of a bush school in Senegal. And even the employees have been doing things for a good cause, for example when they cycled for the Nuremberg Tafel e.V. or had a barbecue to collect money for the campaign "Trösterteddy" (comforting teddy bears).
