SOCIAL COMMITMENT

Responsibility

Entrepreneurial action and social responsibility are inseparably linked at TGW. This is based on the philosophy of TGW founder Ludwig Szinicz (1939-2017), "Focusing on People – Learning and Growing". This is the guideline for the entire TGW world, including our owner, the TGW Future Private Foundation, Future Wings with the charitable projects and us as a foundation-owned company. We meet our social responsibility in three ways, with a comprehensive approach. 

Firstly, the statutes of the foundation that owns our company state that TGW must never be sold and will always remain under the foundation's ownership. Two-thirds of profits are retained and stay in the company. All of this is intended to help TGW act in an environment of lasting stability and offer its employees jobs that are as secure as possible.

 

CHARITABLE COMMITMENT

In addition, charitable commitment plays an equally relevant role for our owner in addition to TGW as the business centerpiece. Therefore, at least ten percent of the profits earned by TGW Logistics Group are set aside annually by the owner for the charitable Future Wings. Future Wings is focused on educational innovations and developing young people with a comprehensive view of the person as an individual.

As part of its commitment to society, TGW also supports various charitable initiatives and social projects as well as aid organizations in our immediate environment. Because teamwork plays a central role in the company, we also support select teams and leagues with sponsorships and donations. Here, too, the focus is on instruction and further training – particularly as part of our work with young people.

Future Wings

Since 2007, Future Wings has been initiating and supporting non-profit projects committed to "Focusing on People – Learning and Growing". The projects include the necessary space to gain both professional expertise and social skills. They are all about supporting the personal development of young people, so that they can live independently, autonomously and responsibly. The intention is for society to also benefit from these educational innovations.
