Making things happen with software. For reliable, more equitable supply chains. And a more equitable society overall. This is what drives us when it comes to social sustainability. Our focus here is on the UN Sustainable Development Goals of “Quality Education,” “Gender Equality,” and “Reduced Inequalities.”
Promoting education. Improving opportunities. Developing personalities. That’s the slogan of the AEB-Stiftung, the charitable foundation we founded in 2017. The AEB-Stiftung is helping to build more schools in socially vulnerable areas of Uganda and Brazil, for example, and is involved with KinderHelden in Germany, which provides mentoring to disadvantaged children.
AEB funds the foundation’s activities from its annual profits.
KinderHelden creates “tandems,” pairing children who had a difficult start in life with local mentors who can intervene early on to offer personalized, preventive support.
Educare is committed to helping children in Brazil living in extreme poverty, giving them perspectives for the future.
ADEPT is dedicated to empowering young people in Uganda to earn their own living in a skilled profession.
The UN goal is to end all forms of discrimination against women and girls everywhere in the world. Women should be able to participate equally in political, economic, and public life. AEB has taken many internal actions toward gender equality. A few examples:
We are committed to SDG 10: “Reduced Inequalities” – at our company, in Germany, and around the world. Within our direct sphere of influence, this means above all ensuring equal opportunity. This is a key pillar of our shared values and interactions. That’s why AEB is also fully committed to the UN’s Universal Declaration of Human Rights.
Non-discrimination, freedom of expression, freedom of association, worker participation in management decisions, fair and satisfactory working conditions including equal pay for equal work and occupational health and safety: All these issues are near and dear to us in our own business operations. We’ve been busy on this front as well. Some examples:
Our Sustainability Report, which we voluntarily published for the first time for the year 2022, offers a detailed look at our strategy, along with the programs and activities designed to support that strategy:
