Inclusive Labour Market

Inclusive Labour Market

– towards a labour market in which everyone has equal opportunities to participate

 

In an Inclusive Labor Market, everyone who can and wants to make a full contribution to society and can thus provide for their own livelihood. Work is a source of income and makes people feel that they belong, matter. To this end, we support the development of people, we promote an inclusive culture in companies, and we want to find forward-looking ways to bring entrepreneurs and workers together.

Cicular Economy

Cicular Economy

– towards an economy that develops within the ecological limits of our planet

 

In the circular economy, products, parts and raw materials are reused as much as possible. Our broad goal is to accelerate the transition from a linear to a circular economy. We pay particular attention to aspects such as work (jobs and skills), entrepreneurship and chain cooperation.

Humane Economy

Humane Economy

– towards an economy of shared interests

 

In a humane economy, people focus on the interests of others, and on shared interests. However, our economy is still permeated by presuppositions of man as a calculating, selfish being. We see equipping future leaders in the economy as a fundamental challenge where we can achieve much with our modest resources.
