As part of its sustainability and climate protection strategy DACHSER supports social and societal activities beyond the company’s direct business interests as part of Corporate Citizen+. Engagement in developing and emerging countries is paramount.
terre des hommes
Since 2005 DACHSER has been helping people to help themselves together with the international children’s aid charity terre des hommes. Different projects in South Asia, Southern Africa, Latin America and Ukraine aim to improve the educational opportunities and living conditions of children and young people, particularly those from socially and economically disadvantaged communities. A particular concern is funding youth groups that are involved in children’s rights, education, and climate and environmental protection. The projects focus directly on local social structures in order to promote self-determination because, in line with the guiding principle “Helping People to Help Themselves,” young people should take the future of their local community into their own hands and shape it. They are comprehensively empowered for this in long-term projects, not least because their entrepreneurial spirit is awoken and encouraged.
You can find more on the projects with terre des hommes in the current Annual Report in our DACHSER Mediaroom.
Supporting myclimate climate protection projects
Since 2023, DACHSER has been funding sustainability projects in Africa and South-East Asia by the charitable foundation myclimate. The projects are focused on climate protection with the reduction and avoidance of greenhouse gas emissions. Our engagement in already existing projects will prevent the emission of climate-damaging greenhouse gases totaling 45,000 tons of CO2e within three years. All projects are certified and registered through the gold standard.
