Dürr engages in social, cultural and academic activities beyond its obligations to society as a corporate citizen. Dürr, the Board of Management and employees help selectively – primarily with local projects in the region – through donations and sponsoring, and with their knowledge and contacts. Dürr AG sees this engagement as an integral part of its company-wide social responsibility.
Dürr AG supports cultural projects within the local community. This includes the "Best of Music" blues & jazz festival or the "Bietigheimer Wunderland" festival in Bietigheim-Bissingen.
Social engagement is matter-of-course for Dürr. This includes its support for the Gustav-Werner School in Stuttgart, a school that teaches and cares for mentally handicapped children. We also support the START-Foundation which offers scholarship programs for students with an immigrant background. As well we support schools and universities in India and China.
We further academic exchanges. For instance we support the universities in Stuttgart, Darmstadt and Mannheim.
