Our committed contribution
In this globalised world, our company is part of a diverse network involving people, professional associations and other organisations. We take our social responsibility (which extends beyond our business objectives) seriously, and do what we can to get involved financially, to give non-material assistance as well as support on a voluntary basis – but always with great dedication.
Sport, culture and other good causes
We support local sports clubs, especially in communities that are home to members of staff. We also sponsor specific charitable and cultural projects. Every year during the Advent season, a fundraising effort takes place, with selected clubs, associations and projects in the social, political and economic spheres receiving financial assistance.
A family-friendly company
Klasmann-Deilmann is among the founding members of the Emsland region’s ‘Work and Family’ foundation (www.familienstiftung-emsland.de), which is committed to helping local people combine family and career. Klasmann-Deilmann has an excellent reputation in this regard; among other measures, it offers a great many part-time jobs.
Through membership of key international, European and domestic organisations, we are strengthening political and scientific dialogue. The focus is on securing the supply of raw materials for substrates, on the science of peat and peatlands, on the study and standardisation of substrates, on relevant legislation and on the interdisciplinary complexities involved in the horticultural sciences.
Our involvement in Europe
We are a founder member of Growing Media Europe AISBL, a non-profit organisation. Established in 2016, it represents the interests of the substrate industry – which has thus far been served by EPAGMA – and will assume part of the latter’s role. Growing Media Europe supports the development of a suitable political environment for the production and trading of these materials within the European continent. Its director is Cecilia Luetgebrune.
Our international involvement
As our company becomes more and more internationally focused, our involvement at this wider level is very strong. As a member of the International Peatland Society (IPS), Klasmann-Deilmann contributes one member of the IPS’s seven-strong Board.
