Hubert Burda Media is a family business with the values to match. Our idea: We want to work together to make things happen! To move people emotionally with our topics and stories. To actively drive societal change. And we want to make the commitment of individuals visible and promote it. The Burda family set a good example; they have been fulfilling their social responsibilities for many generations and continue to donate to, set up and support cultural and social organisations.
Powered by courage and optimism
Developed from personal stories and driven by courage and optimism, our charitable foundations and brand initiatives have been advocating for social issues for many decades in an effort to improve our society.
Famous events such as Bambi, the Tribute to Bambi charity gala and the Felix Burda Award attract a lot of coverage, draw attention to socially relevant topics, encourage prominent figures to network and give a platform to aid organisations and social initiatives.
Change is possible if it is supported from “below” and fostered from “above”. We use our power as a media and tech company to put key topics on the agenda and give people a positive incentive to take responsibility for society. We believe it is our job to highlight and encourage personal commitment.
Our areas of activity: sustainability, health, child welfare
Sustainability and environmental protection are key values in Hubert Burda Media’s corporate strategy. The whole corporation is committed to reducing CO₂ emissions and regenerating resources.
We advocate for greater preventive healthcare and an improved healthcare system. We promote initiatives for healthy and sustainable diets.
We support education projects for socially disadvantaged children in Germany and Africa and use our media to raise awareness of misfortune and issues that attract far too little attention in our society.
Together we can make a difference!
We encourage and help our employees to support social projects close to their hearts. No project is too small, no idea too big. By harnessing the wide range of skills within the Burda network, we can make even the smallest project a big deal – and work together in support of socially relevant topics.
Our volunteering award honours employees who dedicate themselves to social projects and provides financial support for selected initiatives.
