DZ BANK takes its responsibility toward society very seriously and exercises this responsibility in a number of different ways. All of our social engagement is founded on the core cooperative principles of self-reliance, autonomy, and personal responsibility.
Helping people to help themselves
At DZ BANK, commitment to the common good forms part of our cooperative corporate philosophy. Our social engagement encompasses the DZ BANK Foundation, donations, community-based activities, initiatives to support the arts, and the DZ BANK microfinance fund.
Our intention in making donations is based on social objectives: We want to encourage achievement, help to create an open society, and contribute to a sustainable community. To this effect, we focus our engagement primarily on science and education, social causes, and arts and culture.
