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​.fami​li​en​stif​tung​-ems​land​.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.


World­wi­de involvement

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

gme_logo_160607_4cWe 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.
