"Only by setting ecological standards, will we be economically successful."
(EBV's ECOmise it Mission Statement)
"People who need help are a barometer for the well-being of our society – ignore it at your own peril!"
(EBV's social leadership Mission Statement)
EBV has always been happy to accept responsibility: our social commitment is something we have been undertaking on our own initiative for decades now, and in this time we have placed emphasis on the credibility of the projects we support and on finding initiatives in the regions around our sites to which our employees have personal contact. It is crucial for us that we can include and motivate people working for us to get involved personally with the projects we support.
