MEYLE’s donation and development partnerships

MEYLE has been committed to social issues for years. It all started with company founder Wulf Gaertner visiting and supporting the SOS Children’s Village in Guatemala following a trip to Central America. Various support cooperations have come about since then, including with the friends’ association of the children’s hospital in Beira and the association Heim-statt Tschernobyl e.V.

The strategic framework of our engagement

•    Regional: giving the socially disadvantaged a chance 
•    International: tackling the causes of flight 
•    Non-political and non-religious: making independent decisions 
•    Long-term: offering project organisers better plannability based on long-term cooperations  
•    Transparency: ‘Do good and talk about it’ 
•    Sustainability: offering capacity development

MEYLE support: education, health care, environmental protection

MEYLE AG has made a lasting commitment to supporting social projects and development partnerships. With a great deal of dedication, the company uses financial resources to assist disadvantaged communities in a variety of countries, focusing in particular on projects that promote education, health care and environmental protection.

MEYLE works closely with non-profit organisations to ensure that its endeavours are effective. Its financial support plays a part in sustainably improving many people’s lives and effecting positive societal change. MEYLE is proud to play its part and assume corporate responsibility by promoting social projects around the world. MEYLE champions helping people in need to act independently and responsibly. The objective is to effect inclusive and structurally relevant change within society and open up new prospects.  

United Nations Sustainable Development Goals

MEYLE supports the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). These were adopted in September 2015 in the 2030 Agenda and comprise 17 goals and 169 targets that seek to preserve the planet for future generations. They include the promotion of environmental and climate protection, combating global hunger, increasing peace and fairness, and realising equal education opportunities. These goals highlight the challenges that humankind must overcome in the years to come.

Education projects

MEYLE supports education projects as education is an important basis for career and societal success. A good education can help overcome poverty. 

MEYLE focuses on improving access to primary, secondary and tertiary education, including vocational preparation and career guidance. In this way, education is promoted when children are still young, youth unemployment is reduced worldwide, decent work is promoted, resilience against crises is boosted and self-determined life is made possible. Here, the company is contributing to SDG 4 Quality Education. SDG 4 and its targets seek to ensure inclusive and equitable quality education for all. This creates the conditions for decent work and balanced economic growth.

 MEYLE focuses its sponsorship on medium- to long-term education and infrastructure projects. The company promotes career training programmes to afford young people better opportunities in the labour market, their own income and an independent life.

Fundraising projects, which are initiated and co-sponsored by our employees.

In the coming years, we hope to be able to expand our support efforts even further in order to make our additional contribution to the UN's Sustainable Development Goals and thus enable those in need to have long-term prospects for the future while at the same time protecting the environment.

Of course, donations from you are also important and welcome. Instead of monetary donations, there is also the possibility - and also a special need - for motivated volunteers in various non-profit organisations, such as the Bürgerstiftung Hamburg in various exciting projects.

We would also like to take this opportunity to thank our employees - we could not do this without you!
